DIAMANTIDES OPTS FOR LANGH TECH SCRUBBERS

Wednesday, November 14, 2018 

Langh Tech has secured a contract to deliver scrubbers for retrofit installation to bulk carriers and product tankers operated by Marmaras Navigation and Delta Tankers. Both companies are owned by Greek shipowner Diamantis Diamantides and form part of a fleet upgrade programme.

Nine 92 000dwt post-panamax bulk carriers and one 114 000dwt aframax tanker will each be fitted out with a Langh Tech open loop hybrid ready system. The scrubbers are scheduled for delivery to undisclosed shipyards within 2019. The contract includes options for addtional units.

“We have selected Langh Tech for offering an attractive combination of system quality, simplicity and proven track record. We felt comfortable with their production facilities and we valued highly their inherent experience on scrubber systems as ship operators as well. They were able to facilitate our tight delivery schedule demand and showed great flexibility in formulating a custom-fit scheme for serving our specific post-panamax and aframax tanker fleet retrofit program,’’ said Paschalis Diamantides.

Laura Langh-Lagerlöf, Commercial Director of Langh Tech, said:  ‘We are very excited to work on a demanding retrofit project with tight deliveries and analytical project management. The systems will be designed to fit restricted engine casing spaces and their low operating costs will offer a significantly fast pay-back to the shipowner. We have further committed to provide a strong technical support during the whole installation and commissioning procedure.”
