Norway’s Clean Marine is to supply its exhaust gas cleaning system (EGCS) for a very large gas carrier (CLGC) being built by Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) for Dorian LPG.

Clean Marine says the system will enable the new Dorian LPG vessel to comply with future legislation relating to sulphur emissions without switching to more expensive fuels.

Nils Høy-Petersen, CEO, Clean Marine, said: “For vessels operating in European/US waters, inside the emission control areas (ECAs), a maximum sulphur limit of 0.1% will apply from 2015.”

“The Clean Marine system supplied to the new Dorian LPG vessel will clean both sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter emissions from one main engine, three auxiliary engines, and one boiler. In total, a single Clean Marine EGCS unit will manage five exhaust sources,” he added.

The EGCS is based on the Advanced Vortex Chamber technology that provides particulate matter trapping efficiency.

Its integrated fan and gas recirculation technology also allows the one EGCS unit to simultaneously serve several combustion units.

The system being supplied to Dorian LPG is a hybrid system that allows the vessel to operate seamlessly in all types of water, including low alkaline and saline water, without loss of efficiency.

Clean Marine’s unit also meets the current pH limit for washwater discharges.

Installation of the EGCS unit is scheduled to take place in Q2 2014.
