Royal Niestern Sander: decline sulphur emissions by installation of scrubber technology

Royal Niestern Sander decline sulphur emissions by installation of scrubber technology. In 2015 Royal Niestern Sander teamed up with a number of companies in the northern maritime cluster, including Engie, Eekels, and CIG CentraalStaal, to complete the installation of a scrubber on two ships of Wagenborg Shipping. This happend within 4 weeks installation time.

Installation concists:
– Detailed engineering: routing, adjustment to constructions, layouts, prefabrication drawings
– Creating and pre-fabricating: technical space, scrubber casing and exhaust three-way valve housing, new seainlet box
– Connecting the systems Rebuilding: from ballast tank to pumproom

As of 1st January 2015 there is a stricter international IMO law an regulation concerning sulphur emissions in the SECA (Sulphur Emissions Control Area). In order to comply the standard, a shipowner has the choice of either using fuel whose sulphur content is low enough or using sulphur containig fuel in combination with an installation that cleans the exhaust gases. The Wartsila Hybrid scrubbers enable the ships to sail in closed or open loop technology. This hybrid system makes it possible to sail in all areas and also anticipates any ever tougher emissions standards that may be imposed in the near future.
