UK-based Cleanship Solutions announced that it has clinched a scrubber retrofit project for an unnamed vessel operator for over 30 containerships with capacity ranging from 7,500 teu to 15,000 teu.

The retrofit work will be completed by the second quarter of this year.

Chris McMenemy, managing director of Cleanship Solutions, said: “This significant container vessel operator placing their confidence in our unique and efficient scrubber retrofit process is a fantastic exponent of our team’s hard work and dedication to offering the market the quickest scrubber retrofit service around. We are excited to be working closely with this operator in their scrubber retrofit program through 2019.”

The work covers all aspects of the scrubber retrofit engineering phase including 3D scanning and class design and production design. The 3D scanning has mostly been completed.

The order for Cleanship Solutions come as the shipping industry heads to the IMO 2020 rule requiring ships to burn fuel with a maximum sulphur content of 0.5%.
