Wärtsilä wins repeat scrubber order from Finnlines

Wärtsilä wins repeat scrubber order from Finnlines
Wärtsilä has won a repeat order to supply hybrid exhaust-gas scrubbers for three Finnlines Ro-Ro ferries.

The contract is for three hybrid in-line scrubbers, which can operate in either open-or-closed-loop configurations, allowing the the vessels to comply with any regional regulations on open-loop scrubbers. The in-line design saves space and weight on board the vessel.

"We are very pleased to call on Wärtsilä again to provide us with the latest emissions abatement technology and know-how," said Tapani Voionmaa, group general counsel for Finnlines. "This is an important step towards having our entire Baltic fleet scrubber equipped and in fully operational service."

"Repeat orders are always very satisfying as they represent confirmation that the performance of the systems delivered earlier fully meets the owners' needs and expectations. Wärtsilä is the market leader in scrubber systems for marine applications. We have a very strong track record in enabling ship owners and operators to comply with all SOx emission regulations," says Juha Kytölä, vp of environmental solutions at Wärtsilä.
