Navios ShipManagement is to conduct a feasibility study and techno-economic analysis of exhaust gas cleaning systems with DuPont Clean Technologies after signing a letter of intent endorsing the company as its preferred supplier of scrubbers.
The studies will look at both retrofitting and newbuild projects across Navios’ fleet of 163 owned and long-term chartered vessels. A variety of vessel types including bulk carriers, containerships and tankers will be investigated.
Marco Dierico, business development manager, DuPont Marine Scrubbers, said: “Talks with Navios reached this point because both companies are focused on efficiently reducing emissions. With our technical capabilities and flexible, reliable exhaust gas cleaning systems, we are able to ensure that Navios maintains its emissions standards with full confidence.”
Navios Group’s fleet ranges from Capesize to Panamax, Ultra-Handymax and Handy size bulk carriers, container vessels and MR2, LR1, VLCC and chemical tanker vessels deployed for complex freight movement around the world.
