Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 25 January 2013 at 8 am EET
Wärtsilä chosen to fit Exhaust Gas Cleaning system and Selective Catalytic
Reduction (SCR) technology.
Wärtsilä, the marine industry's leading solutions and services provider, has
received a repeat order to provide a hybrid exhaust gas cleaning and SCR system.
The contract was signed in December 2012.
The systems provide universal compliance with sulphur limits including the North
American ECA, the 2015 0.1 per cent ECA in Europe, the worldwide 0.5 per cent
sulphur limit from 2020 and Tier III IMO NOx limits from 2016. The hybrid
exhaust gas cleaning system also enables the choice between open-loop and
closed-loop scrubbing to be made at any time, maximising control. This means
that exhaust gas cleaning using only seawater can be enabled at sea
manoeuvring or in port the system can be closed, re-circulating the water
already within the scrubber. In addition, the SCR system, which is integrated
into the engine downstream of the exhaust gas turbine, will remove up to 95 per
cent of NOx from the vessel's emissions.
Sigurd Jenssen, Director, Exhaust Gas Cleaning, Wärtsilä Ship Power,
Environmental Solutions, says: "This repeat order, included in the 2012 fourth
quarter order book for Wärtsilä, further validates scrubbing technology as a
proven, efficient and cost effective method of meeting and exceeding ECA
compliance and is evidence of the strong customer partnerships that we develop
and the quality of the systems that we provide. Wärtsilä customers are at the
forefront of proactive preparation for further incoming environmental regulation
and are taking their responsibilities seriously."
Wärtsilä is committed to providing customers with choice and offers a range of
environmental solutions to help owners and operators meet upcoming emissions
regulation. In addition to the flexible hybrid scrubber, Wärtsilä's offering
also includes the Wärtsilä closed-loop scrubber and Wärtsilä open-loop scrubber,
previously known as the Hamworthy Krystallon Exhaust Gas Cleaning System.
Wärtsilä SCR system integrate optimally with all Wärtsilä engines and exhaust
gas cleaning systems to meet all upcoming IMO, EU and US regulation.
