AEC Maritime has installed a closed loop scrubber installation, which has been commissioned and is now fully operational at the Scandlines Ferry M/V Schleswig-Holstein, sailing on the route Puttgarden-Rødby.

The commissioning took place aboard the M/V Schleswig-Holstein of Scandlines, one of Europe’s largest ferry operators. “We are impressed with the AEC approach and the simplicity of their system. Their technology works without filters so there is no polluting packed bed. AEC Maritime has made clever use of their 20 years’ experience within scrubber technology” remarked Fini Alsted Hansen, Technical Superintendent Fleet Management at Scandlines.

“Our experience dates back to 1994 and includes extensive research on how to reduce emissions and odours. We have applied this technology in 2.300 land-based scrubber systems” added Clephas. For the maritime industry, AEC Maritime has a patent pending on the design of this scrubbing technology that is applicable to all type of engines.
