Clean Marine's EGCS system

Clean Marine wins Hyundai Mipo deal for EGCS tanker installation

Norway’s Clean Marine will supply exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) for two new MR tankers to be built at South Korea’s Hyundai Mipo Dockyard.

The order for Clean Marine’s EGCS will enable the new MR tankers, owned and operated by a British oil major, to comply with IMO regulation without switching to more expensive fuels.

IMO’s convention for the reduction of sulphur oxides demands that ships burn bunker fuel with a maximum sulphur content limit of 0.1% in IMO-designated Emission Control Areas (ECAs) from 2015 and that global fuel sulphur content level must not exceed 0.5% from 2020 or 2025, subject to a review in 2018.

Clean Marine’s EGCS has an integrated fan and gas recirculation technology to simultaneously serve all combustion units, including the boilers.

The system supplied to Hyundai Mipo Dockyard will be designed to clean 100,000 kg exhaust per hour and will remove both sulphur oxides and particulate matter from the emissions from one main engine, two auxiliary engines and one boiler.

“These contracts confirm the growing market demand for Clean Marine’s Allstream EGCS, which is a particularly competitive solution for the tanker segment,” said Nils Høy-Petersen, ceo of Clean Marine.

The installation of the EGCS is scheduled to take place during 2016.

The two MR tankers are of 40,000 dwt in capacity and they are part of a series of five sister vessels to be constructed at the shipyard.
