Sembawang Signed Memorandum Of Agreement With Ecospec

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Singapore, April 14, 2011: Sembawang Shipyard, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sembcorp Marine has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Ecospec Global Technology to provide customized and greener environmental solutions to the marine and offshore industry.

In anticipation of the huge demand for green environmental solutions to meet international and local regulations, this MOA will provide both companies with the capability to serve this demand and at the same time play a role in enhancing environmental protection. The objective of this partnership is to tap on the forte of both parties: Sembawang Shipyard’s design and engineering expertise and Ecospec’s technological developing capabilities to provide ship-owners with innovative and effective green solutions for complying with stringent international and local regulations. Ecospec which is an enterprising Singapore-based research and development technological company is a market leader in advance emission reduction and environmental technologies with an international presence and numerous technology patents to its name. Ecospec has developed the world’s first emission abatement technology, CSNOx capable of removing SOx, CO2 and NOx in one system and yet the quality of wash water surpasses all IMO criteria, this not resulting in secondary pollution. To cater to shipowners’ emission reduction goals, different versions of CSNOx have been developed: cSOx, a system primarily to address the SOx issue but achieve at a carbon neutral position and CNOx, a system to take care of NOx emission and again at a carbon neutral position.

Apart from different versions of CSNOx, Ecospec has also developed other systems to provide green, non-chemical solutions for bio-fouling control with its BioMag system; corrosion control, ElMag system; boiler water treatment, ScaMag.

To showcase the variety of these revolutionary systems already developed or to be developed, a new state-of-the-art demonstration site will be erected in Sembawang Shipyard, in a simulated operating condition.

Both companies are confident that the strong co-operation will lead to their increased competitiveness in the marine and offshore industry.
