Clean Marine has celebrated the launch of its new compact scrubber design with a seven-vessel contract from Inventor Chemical Tankers (ICT).

The 19,900dwt vessels, built at Japan’s Fukuoka Shipyard between 2015 and 2017, will be retrofitted with the CleanSOx Compact Hybrid Allstream scrubber. ICT has partnered with Clean Marine and technical manager Diamond Shipmanagement to manage the installation and commissioning of the systems.

Nils Høy-Petersen, CEO, Clean Marine, noted that a single system can treat exhaust from all sources onboard vessels with no back pressure in the exhaust system, while a compact design means the unit delivers significant size and weight advantages.

Torfin Eide, chief operating officer, ICT, said: “We compared performance, size, weight, price and operating costs of similar products developed by other companies before choosing Clean Marine. The compact size means that we can avoid a major retrofit - a significant contributing factor in our decision.”

Høy-Petersen concluded: “Our latest product has been designed to ensure shipowners can achieve simple, cost and space efficient compliance with the IMO’s SOx regulations, coming into force in 2020. The new Compact scrubber has all the advantages of our existing, patented technology with added benefits for shipowners looking for ease of retrofitting.”
