Wärtsilä has been contracted by TT-Line, the German-Swedish ferry operator, to retrofit an exhaust gas cleaning system to its Ro-Pax vessel, the ‘M/S Robin Hood’ as part of TT-Line's Green Ship strategy.

The full turnkey project will be managed by Wärtsilä thereby minimising downtime and risk, whilst guaranteeing performance and regulatory compliance. The contract was signed in October 2013 and delivery and installation will take place during summer 2014.

M/S Robin Hood will be fitted with four Wärtsilä Hybrid Scrubber Systems designed to reduce harmful sulphur oxide (SOx) and particulate emissions from the ship's exhaust. The systems will also enable compliance with the SECA regulations, as well as with anticipated future legislation.

Mr Hannes Conzen, CEO of TT-Line, said: “Environmental responsibility is a key element in TT-Line's Green Ship strategy. The pilot installation of Wärtsilä exhaust gas cleaning systems on the M/S Robin Hood is a significant step towards our goals in this respect.”

He added that the retrofit project is co-financed by the European Union through the TEN-T MOS "Green Bridge on Nordic Corridor" project. We see advantages in Wärtsilä's turnkey supply, and we will benefit from having one single point of contact for the entire project.

The ferry operates in the Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA) between Travemünde, Germany and Trelleborg, Sweden.
