Finnlines Orders Alfa Laval’s Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems

Alfa Laval, a global specialist in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling, has won an order to supply Alfa Laval PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning systems to Finnlines Plc.

The order is booked in the Marine & Offshore Systems segment and delivery is scheduled for 2014. Due to a confidentiality agreement Alfa Laval did not disclose the value of the order.

The order includes four Alfa Laval PureSOX exhaust gas cleaning systems; it is hybrid prepared open-loop systems for four vessels to be retrofitted during end of 2014 / beginning of 2015.

“This order for our scrubber technology confirms that it is an attractive and proven solution for the reduction of sulphur oxides, be it for retrofits or for installation aboard new vessels,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.

IMO’s convention for the reduction of sulphur oxides (SOX) will affect all vessels, both new and existing. The convention demands that sulphur emission levels in certain Emission Control Areas (ECAs) shall be cut to 0.1 percent from the year 2015 and that the global emission level must not exceed 0.5 percent from the year 2020.

To reach these levels ship owners can either use more expensive low-sulphur fuel or, on vessels where it is suitable, continue to run the ship on heavy fuel oil and invest in a scrubber such as Alfa Laval’s PureSOX.
