HHI develops scrubber technology

HHI claims its technology can match the performance of European scrubbers while occupying a 35% smaller footprint HHI claims its technology can match the performance of European scrubbers while occupying a 35% smaller footprint

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has developed sulphur scrubbing technology which it claims offers the same performance as leading European systems with a 35% reduction in footprint.

The company, which began working on the technology in May 2016, said that its system removes up to 99% of sulphuric acid, hydrochloric acid and hydrofluoric acid from exhaust. HHI anticipates selling more than 50 of the units each year to the newbuilding and retrofit markets.

HHI developed selective catalytic reduction systems to minimise nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions from medium-sized engines in 2012 and large engines in 2016. The company sold 500 SCR units last year.

A spokesperson said: “By developing exhaust gas cleaning equipment in addition to nitrogen oxides abatement equipment, we will be able to pre-empt the eco-friendly engine equipment market, which is expected to grow significantly.”

Last year HHI formed Hyundai Global Services, a division dedicated to ‘green’ retrofitting including NOx and SOx abatement as well as ballast water management technologies.
