Vulica Shipping Co Ltd has selected DuPont Clean Technologies for the supply of a DuPont marine scrubber produced by DuPont subsidiary Belco Technologies Corporation (BELCO).

The hybrid single-stream scrubber was designed by BELCO to be retrofitted to the unloading bulk carrier MV H.A. SKLENAR.

Garrett Billemeyer, technology development manager, at BELCO, said: “This type of DuPont marine scrubber hybrid design provides the most flexibility when a vessel is in an Emission Control Area (ECA), because it can operate in both open or closed loop mode.”

He said that all DuPont marine scrubbers are mechanically designed for the full exhaust gas temperature, allowing the scrubber to also operate ‘dry’ without requiring additional by-pass exhaust ducting and equipment at times when flue gas treatment is unnecessary.

Installation of the new DuPont Marine Scrubber onboard the MV H.A. SKLENAR is scheduled for completion by April 2017.
