Newport Shipping stocks up 100 scrubbers for turnkey retrofit service

Newport Shipping Group has stocked up on 100 scrubbers, with options for a futher 100 so that it can provide turnkey retrofit services to shipowners.

Buying the scrubbers in bulk from Weihai Puyi Marine Environmental Technology Co (Puyier) aims to be able to offer a turnkey retofit solution with guaranteed slots at shipyards even as demand increases as the deadline for the 1 January 2020 sulphur cap gets ever closer

Newport Shipping has signed cooperation agreements with engineering services providers Harris-Pye and Goltens for 3D scanning and engineering services.

“We are providing shipowners with a true one-stop-shop for equipment procurement, engineering, guaranteed retrofit slots, and attractive deferred payment plans covering up to 60% of the total contract cover over 18-months subsequent to retrofit completion,” said Newport Shipping ceo Erol Sarikaya.

“Having secured an 8-month lead-time for scrubbers ordered by the end of October, we can guarantee shipowners that their retrofits will be completed well in advance of the 2020 Sulphur Cap implementation date.”

Puyier manufactures open, closed and hybrid scrubber systems and has references from over 70 customers.

Newport Shipping has either LOIs or contracts with shipowners for 87 out of 100 of the scrubber systems.
