Langh Tech of Finland and STX Offshore & Shipbuilding (STX O&S) have signed a deal concerning scrubber retrofits on seven vessels in the Polaris fleet.

The four 180K bulkers and the three 300K VLOCs in the fleet will be equipped with Langh Tech’s open loop scrubbers.

The scrubber installations will be done as turn key deliveries by STX O&S. On each of the vessels the main engine and the three auxiliaries are connected to the scrubber. The scrubbers are multi-inlet type and Langh Tech delivers all the equipment necessary for a fully working open loop system. The component deliveries will start in summer 2019 and the installations will follow soon after component delivery.

Langh Tech is represented in Korea by Regional Manager Simon Kim. “I believe that this scrubber retrofit contract with Polaris Shipping will be a great milestone for Langh Tech to cooperate with many other esteemed Korean shipping companies in the future”, said Kim.

Langh Tech will be training local service and commissioning engineers for the Korean market. This will safeguard short reaction time for service visits in Korean and other nearby ports. Langh Tech scrubber have previously been manufactured in Europe, but now Langh Tech will start scrubber tower production in Korea. “We look forward to further strengthen our position in the Korean market, both as component sales to new building yards and to retrofit installations”, said Langh Tech’s Commercial Director Laura Langh-Lagerlöf.
