Clean Marine has been selected by Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea to supply exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) for a Very Large Gas Carrier (VLGC) being built for Dorian LPG Ltd.

The order will enable the new Dorian LPG vessel to comply with future legislation relating to sulphur emissions without switching to more expensive fuels. According to Nils Høy-Petersen, CEO in Clean Marine, “The contract signals a growing market demand for Clean Marine’s unique and competitive multi-stream EGCS solution.”

Dorian LPG has offices in the U.S., U.K. and Greece and is an owner and operator of modern VLGCs. The company owns and operates three modern VLGCs and one pressurized LPG vessel. In addition, Dorian LPG has ordered three fuel-efficient VLGC newbuildings from Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. with deliveries in 2014 and holds an option for three additional ECO VLGCs. These vessels are designed with the highest fuel efficiency available and will be among the first VLGCs with ME-G type engines to enter the worldwide fleet. Dorian LPG recently announced that it has entered into an agreement with Scorpio Tankers Inc. to take over their 11 VLGC newbuilding contracts and two optional ECO VLGCs, bringing the number of firm fuel-efficient VLGC newbuildings on order to 14 with five optional ECO VLGCs.

Clean Marine has developed an EGCS based on the Advanced Vortex Chamber technology that provides unique particulate matter trapping efficiency. The system’s integrated fan and gas recirculation technology also allows the one EGCS unit to simultaneously serve several combustion units. The system supplied to Dorian LPG is a hybrid system that allows the vessel to operate seamlessly in all types of water (including low alkaline and saline water) without loss of efficiency. Furthermore, the Clean Marine EGCS meets the current pH limit for washwater discharges with good margin. Clean Marine looks forward to assisting Dorian LPG in its commitment to protect the environment and implement greener technology.

“For vessels operating in European/U.S. waters, inside the emission control areas (ECAs), a maximum sulphur limit of 0.1% will apply from 2015,” said Høy-Petersen. “The Clean Marine system supplied to the new Dorian LPG vessel will clean both sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter emissions from one main engine, three auxiliary engines, and one boiler. In total, a single Clean Marine EGCS unit will manage five exhaust sources.” Installation of the EGCS unit is scheduled to take place during Q2 2014.
