Alfa Laval to supply PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning systems for two cruise ships to MAN in a SEK 55 million contract.

The Alfa Laval PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning systems will be installed onboard two luxury cruise liners, where they will remove over 98 percent of the sulphur oxides from the ship’s exhaust gas. By combining MAN’s engines with Alfa Laval’s PureSOx systems, these luxury cruise vessels can continue using heavy fuel oil instead of expensive, low-sulphur fuel and still meet the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) increasingly stringent requirements in Emission Controlled Areas (ECAs).

“This order proves the technical acceptance among the largest players in the marine industry for our Alfa Laval PureSOx system”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.

"Did you know… that Alfa Laval estimates that 5,000 ships will be affected by the SOx convention, meaning vessels sailing more than 50 percent of their time in the Northern European ECA? Alfa Laval will, among those ships, focus on existing and new vessels with large engines and estimates that app. 1,000 – 2,000 vessels will be equipped with scrubbers over a five year period."

Alfa Laval is a leading global provider of specialized products and engineering solutions based on its key technologies of heat transfer, separation and fluid handling.
