Wartsila awarded Weidong Ferry scrubber contract

19 May 2017 10:55 GMT

Ro-pax ferry to be supplied with two open-loop V-SOx scrubbers.



Wartsila has been contracted to supply its exhaust gas cleaning system to a new ferry being built for Weidong Ferry at the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard.

It is the first Wartsila scrubber system to be installed where the shipyard, the owners, and the vessel's operational area are all in South Korea.

In the agreement, Wartsila has been contracted to supply a system consisting of two 13 megawatt (MW) open-loop V-SOx scrubbers, specifically optimised for the new vessel. Delivery of the Wartsila equipment is scheduled for July of this year.

"This is an important order since it strengthens our visibility in the Asian market. Exhaust gas cleaning is something that ship owners and operators around the world are having to take very seriously, since the IMO's global cap on the sulphur content in marine fuel comes into effect in 2020, which is really rather soon. Wartsila has tremendous experience and a broad range of systems to help our customers comply with these regulations," remarked Sigurd Jenssen, Director, Exhaust Gas Cleaning, Wartsila Marine Solutions.

"We value Wartsila's experience and expertise in this field. We also appreciate their ability to deliver the systems on a fast-track basis," commented Ki-Hyeon Hong, Vice President, Weidong Ferry.

The 31,000-gross-tonnage (grt) ro-pax ferry is to be operated by Weidong Ferry and sail between South Korea and China.
