Wärtsilä Scrubbers for Korean Ferry Newbuild
The system will consist of two 13 MW Open Loop V-SOx Scrubbers specifically optimized for the new vessel, a 31,000 gross tonnage RoPax ferry to be operated by Weidong Ferry between Korea and China.
Delivery of the Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for July of this year.
"This is an important order since it strengthens our visibility in the Asian market. Exhaust gas cleaning is something that ship owners and operators around the world are having to take very seriously, since the IMO's global cap on the sulphur content in marine fuel comes into effect in 2020, which is really rather soon," said Sigurd Jenssen, Director, Exhaust Gas Cleaning, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.
