Finnish ferry operator Finnlines, part of the Grimaldi Group, has placed a service order with Swedish provider of specialized products and engineering solutions Alfa Laval to optimize the performance of its existing scrubber systems.

Finnlines signed the six-year Performance Agreement with Alfa Laval in order to maintain the consistent performance of its PureSOx systems.

The service plan includes yearly condition audits, which help ensure correct operation and provide insights into the state of the equipment. These insights will allow any issues to be addressed before they can lead to unplanned shutdowns, according to Alfa Laval.

The agreement covers PureSOx systems installed on board seven roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessels: Finnpulp, Finnmill, Finnhawk, Finnkraft, Finncarrier, Finnmaster and Finnmerchant.

The ships are part of the Finnlines fleet operating in the Baltic Sea, where strict SOx emissions limits are in place due to the region’s designation as an Emission Control Area (ECA). Finnlines began equipping vessels with PureSOx in 2014, in preparation for the implementation of ECA limits in 2015.

Additionally, Finnlines selected options that will simplify parts management, such as an exchange program for PAH and turbidity sensors. Vital for proving compliance, these sensors will be exchanged every two years and replaced in the event of a failure, Alfa Laval said.

Furthermore, Alfa Laval will track the parts consumption of the Finnlines vessels and provide strategic planning for their spare parts supply.
