Clean Marine AS has been selected by Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea to supply Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS) for two new shuttle tankers being built for AET.

The order will enable the new AET vessels to comply with future legislation relating to sulphur emissions without switching to more expensive fuels.

AET is a global owner and operator of a high quality fleet of 83 modern petroleum tankers. AET has entered into a long-term contract with Statoil to operate the two specialized DP2-type shuttle tankers. The two vessels will serve oilfields in the Norwegian sector of the North/Barents Sea. To operate successfully in these harsh environments, the two twin-skeg 120.000 DWT tankers will be constructed to a specification that exceeds any other DP shuttle tanker currently in operation, the company said. The tankers will be fully adapted to operations in adverse weather conditions and will be equipped with high power thrusters and engines.

Clean Marine has developed an EGCS based on the Advanced Vortex Chamber technology that provides particulate matter trapping efficiency. The system’s integrated fan and gas recirculation technology allows the one EGCS unit to simultaneously serve several combustion units.

“For vessels sailing in European waters and other emission control areas (ECAs), a maximum sulphur limit of 0.1% will apply from 2015,” said Nils Høy-Petersen, CEO of Clean Marine AS. “The Clean Marine system supplied to AET will clean both sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter emissions from two main engines, five auxiliary engines, and three boilers. In total, a single Clean Marine EGCS unit will manage 10 exhaust sources.”

Installation of the EGCS units is scheduled to take place during 2013 and 2014, and Samsung will deliver the first state-of-the-art tankers at the end of 2014 and the second in the beginning of 2015.
