Wartsila reports that "a major European container shipping company" has ordered hybrid scrubber systems and retrofit services for its ships, in a deal worth EUR 170 million.

Wartsila Services has been contracted to deliver 50 MW, 60 MW and 70 MW hybrid scrubber systems which will be retrofitted to its client's boxships.

The systems will have the flexibility to operate in both open and closed loop. When in open-loop mode, seawater is used to remove sulpur oxide (SOx) from the exhaust; and in closed-loop mode, seawater with an additional reagent is utilized.

Wartsila will also provide engineering and site advisory services for the vessels.

According to Wartsila, the new scrubber unit design, water cleaning system mode, and the engineering and advisory services will allow more operational efficiency and compliance with upcoming IMO Marpol regulations due to come into effect on January 1, 2020.

"Our exhaust gas cleaning system will not only help our customers' vessels run on lower emissions, but significantly improves the air quality and emission level in coastal and sea areas in general. By providing energy-efficient, innovative and flexible solutions that lower environmental impact through reduced or eliminated emissions, we aim to enable a sustainable future for next generations," remarked Markus Ljungkvist, General Manager of Project Sales at Wartsila Services.
