Published Oct 16, 2018 9:40 AM by The Maritime Executive

Stena Bulk has signed a turnkey exhaust gas scrubber solution agreement with Chinese manufacturer Bluesoul to equip its Suezmax and IMOIIMAX fleets. In total, Stena Bulk will equip 15 vessels with scrubbers and have an additional 6 options for installation prior to 2020.

Shanghai Bluesoul Environment Technology has had a collaboration agreement with the Stena group for more than a year. Bluesoul is the first Chinese enterprise to be awarded Lloyd’s Register Exhaust Gas Cleaning System Machinery General Design Appraisal as well as DNV GL and ABS AiP.

“By installing scrubbers, we will be well equipped to meet the 2020 regulation and are protected from price volatility as well as fuel shortage," says Erik Hånell, President & CEO Stena Bulk. "We are very happy to be able to confirm this order with Bluesoul, which has performed very well in terms of quality."

The scrubber to be installed is an Open Loop Hybrid Ready design with Water Cleaning, which not only removes the sulfur but also particles from the exhaust.
