Alfa Laval – a heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling company – won an order from MAN Diesel and Turbo to supply Alfa Laval PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning systems for two cruise ships. The order for four scrubbers is booked in the Marine and Offshore Systems segment. It has a value of approximately SEK 55 million and delivery is scheduled for 2013 and 2014. 

The Alfa Laval PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning systems will be installed onboard two luxury cruise liners, where they will remove over 98% 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).

Alfa Laval estimates that 5,000 ships will be affected by the SOx convention, meaning vessels sailing more than 50% 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.
