Wärtsilä to offer onboard CCS feasibility studies
Wärtsilä is announcing that it has begun to offer carbon capture and storage (CCS) feasibility studies to shipowners and operators. The studies have already been conducted on a range of vessel types including ro-ro and ro-pax vessels, a drill ship, a container vessel and a gas carrier, according to Wärtsilä Exhaust Treatment.
Wärtsilä is conducting the feasibility studies across both newbuild and existing vessels. The process takes four to six months of study and design work. Wärtsilä Exhaust Treatment’s experts are involved in ship design at an early stage to conduct engineering work to understand how CCS can be smoothly integrated once the technology is launched to market.
