CHIOS OPTS FOR LANG TECH OPEN LOOP SCRUBBER

Thursday, July 4, 2019 

Finnish exhaust gas cleaning systems manufacturer Langh Tech will supply an open loop/hybrid-ready scrubber to the Hyundai Mipo Shipyard for installation to a 50,000dwt MR product tanker building for Chios Navigation.

The system is a U-type multi-inlet scrubber with five flue gas sources in open loop hybrid-ready configuration to serve the vessel's 7180kW main engine, three auxiliary generating sets and the auxiliary boiler.

At the end of April 2019, M/T Doric Courage was delivered to the owner with sea trials confirming the high performance of the Lang Tech system.

‘’We were looking for a scrubber system for our newbuilding project that would be technically simple and sound, but with qualitative elements. We favoured a provider being fully acceptable by HMD Shipyard, demonstrating efficient project management skills and offering strong after sales support. Langh Tech, as ship owners themselves, demonstrated and proved their understanding of our targets and we eventually received a high-performance system with minimal issues during construction, commissioning and delivery. We believe that we have invested in an efficient hybrid-ready solution with low operating costs," said Nicholas Kydoniefs, Technical Director of Chios Navigation.

‘’It is our honour to serve Chios Navigation in Greece and we are very excited to work on our first Hyundai Mipo MR tanker project. Our system was fully fit to the scrubber design specification and space configuration of the shipyard while due to low operating costs it will offer a significantly fast pay-back to the shipowner. We have further committed to provide a strong technical support during the whole operational lifetime of the system," said Laura Langh-Lagerlöf, Commercial Director of Langh Tech. 

Chios Navigation is a traditional, long-established family owned ship owning company located in Greece, owning nine bulk carrier and three medium range product tanker vessels, nearly all of which have been constructed after 2010. 

 Langh Tech is one of the Langh companies, whose business divisions involves ship owning (Langh Ship), steel carriage and bulk containers from (Langh Cargo Solutions) and industrial and ship cleaning services (Hans Langh).
