DeltaLangh has been assigned to deliver Deltamarin Floating Construction Ltd. with an exhaust gas cleaning (scrubber) system to be installed onboard the Ro-Ro vessel M/V Bore Song of Bore Ltd. The delivery consists of a combined closed and open loop scrubber system for 12MW engine output with the patented water treatment and dewatering plant.

M/V Bore Song operates in the English Channel which is a part of the Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA). From January 2015 all ships operating in the SECA area must limit their emissions to correspond to the use of fuel with a sulphur content of less than 0.1%. With the help of the DeltaLangh scrubber M/V Bore Song will meet these requirements. “The scrubber solution chosen for M/V Bore Song is well suited for the vessel and the customer she is operating for,” said Håkan Modig, CEO for Bore.

“The DeltaLangh scrubber provides a unique environmentally friendly scrubber solution, which also efficiently cleans the exhaust gas washing water,” explained Robert Segercrantz, Managing Director for DeltaLangh. The system uses caustic soda to keep the closed loop fresh water pH at optimum level in the exhaust gas cleaning process. The water content of the residual sludge from the patented water treatment process is very low and therefore minimizes the amount of waste. The system can alternatively also be used in an open loop mode with sea water.

This patented scrubber system has been in operation on Langh Ship’s M/S Laura already for one and a half years and has proved  its full functionality year round. Also the other four Langh Ship vessels will be equipped with a similar exhaust gas cleaning system. The scrubber system onboard M/S Laura was approved by Germanischer Lloyd in July 2014.

The equipment will be installed onboard M/V Bore Song on turnkey basis by Deltamarin Floating Construction Ltd, a newly established subsidiary of the Finnish naval architecture and engineering company Deltamarin Ltd. The system installation will be done at a repair yard in Northern Europe within a 14 days docking period at the end of this year. Commissioning will be completed onboard the Bore Song during operation in January 2015.
