Navios selects DuPont as preferred scrubber supplier

12 Apr 2017 10:55 GMT

LOI confirms joint study to retrofit scrubbers on a number of vessels.



Navios ShipManagement Inc. (Navios), part of Navios Group, has issued a letter of intent (LOI) endorsing DuPont Clean Technologies (DuPont) as the preferred supplier of exhaust gas cleaning systems for its vessels.

The letter of intent also confirms that Navios and DuPont will carry out a joint feasibility study and techno-economic analysis of marine scrubbing units for retrofitting or new build installation on a variety of vessels, from bulk carriers to containers and tankers.

The planned feasibility study will examine the viability of fitting DuPont Marine Scrubbers on both retrofit and newbuild projects.

"Talks with Navios reached this point because both companies are focused on efficiently reducing emissions. With our technical capabilities and flexible, reliable exhaust gas cleaning systems, we are able to ensure that Navios maintains its emissions standards with full confidence," said Marco Dierico, business development manager for DuPont Marine Scrubbers.

Navios Group operates a fleet of 163 owned and long-term charter-in vessels ranging from Capesize to Panamax, Ultra-Handymax and Handy size bulk carriers, container vessels and MR2, LR1 VLCC and chemical tanker vessels deployed for complex freight movement around the world.

DuPont specializes in the project management, process engineering, design, construction and commissioning of the DuPont exhaust gas cleaning system.

Last year, Bunker Index reported that Vulica Shipping Company Ltd had selected DuPont for the supply of a DuPont Marine Scrubber produced by DuPont subsidiary Belco Technologies Corporation (BELCO).
