DFDS bookends century of ships with PureSOx scrubbers

18 Oct 2017 11:07 GMT

First ever PureSOx order was for the DFDS vessel Ficaria Seaways back in 2009.



Alfa Laval reports that a newbuild owned by DFDS was the 100th vessel to order PureSOx scrubber technology. The Danish shipping company also purchased the very first PureSOx scrubber back in 2009 for use aboard the ro-ro vessel Ficaria Seaways.

To date, a total of 109 vessels have been selected to undergo PureSOx installations in order to comply with IMO SOx emissions regulations.

With more than 75 PureSOx systems already in operation today, Alfa Laval claims to have the marine industry's most extensive list of reference installations for any single SOx scrubber technology.

DFDS alone has a total of 16 PureSOx scrubbers in operation on 13 of its vessels, whilst another company, Spliethoff, said in August that it has 20 ships with PureSOx systems installed.

"The close, ongoing partnership we've been fortunate to build with DFDS and many other customers have been a great benefit for Alfa Laval," said Erik Haveman, Sales Director, Exhaust Gas Cleaning at Alfa Laval. "They have been instrumental in helping us to better understand the needs facing marine customers when it comes to installing and commissioning SOx scrubber systems."

Experience

In the eight years since the first PureSOx system was installed aboard the Ficaria Seaways, Alfa Laval has been involved in a wide range of installation projects. Of the more than 100 vessels where PureSOx has been selected to meet emissions rules, 41 have been newbuild projects while over 60 have been for retrofits.

Additionally, PureSOx systems have been installed on a range of vessels - from ro-ro and container ships to tankers and cruise liners.

"With this experience, our technicians have developed extensive expertise for finding solutions to match different customers' unique needs," Haveman explained.

"We are proud that customers from across the marine industry put their trust in Alfa Laval," Haveman remarked. "It's been a testament to PureSOx as the market's most complete SOx scrubber platform, as well as to the level of support we can offer as a true partner to our customers."
