SunRui confirms first orders for new EGCS
Chinese manufacturer SunRui has received a number of orders for its SOxFree exhaust gas cleaning system (EGCS), confirming 10 orders from European ship owners since the beginning of the year, with a further 30 orders under negotiation.
Greek shipowner Oceangold Tankers confirmed the first order for SunRui’s new EGCS for three vessels in January, shortly after the product’s launch in December. On 6 March, SunRui confirmed the recent conclusion of an order with Greek shipowner Eastern Mediterranean for the installation of its EGCS on seven ships, including an ongoing support package.
Eastern Mediterranean had initially concluded an order for the combined retrofit of SunRui’s ballast water management system (BWMS) and its new SOxFree EGCS on three VLCCs in early February.
“It fully demonstrates the high trust of Greek shipowners in the technology, products and services of SunRui,” the company said.
The company received type approval for its hybrid wet EGCS system in late 2018 from class societies China Classification Society, DNV GL and LR. The system had approved AiP from CCS in 2016, and from LR in early 2018.
The company conducted emission tests at Shanghai Maritime University for two months on a MAN 6S35ME-B9 diesel engine.
DNV GL supervised a concurrent performance verification test of the washwater treatment system used in the exhaust gas recirculation system (EGR), which was successfully completed, and showed the system meets MEPC 259 (68) emission requirements.
