CHINA'S COSCO TO RETROFIT TEN SHIPS WITH OPEN-LOOP EGCS

Tuesday, July 2, 2019 

COSCO Shipping Lines will retrofit Valmet’s open-loop exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) to ten vessels. Installations will take place in China to different vessel types.

Shijie Wang, Senior Sales Manager, Marine Scrubber Systems, Valmet, said: “The deliveries are good examples of Valmet’s capability to create a tailor-made concept to customer. Thanks to our solution, the scrubber systems can be installed to a single-island container vessel without losing any cargo capacity. Seamless co-operation within Valmet and with our global supply network made very short delivery times possible. The systems are installed before the upcoming International Maritime Organisation (IMO) sulphur cap and they will enable the use of higher sulphur oil, which is cheaper compared to using lower sulphur oil.”

The EGCS systems will be tailor-made for main engine and auxiliary gensets and include automation equipment.
