Stena Line First to Order New Wärtsilä Scrubbers

Swedish ferry operator Stena Line is planning to retrofit two of its Ro-Ro vessels with Wärtsilä scrubbers to meet the 0.1% sulphur emission cap.

The in-line closed-loop scrubber systems will be installed on the Stena Transit and Stena Transporter ferries operating between Hoek van Holland in the Netherlands and Killingholme in the U.K.

The operating routes of these two ferries fall within the North Sea’s Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA).

This is the first ever order for an in-line closed loop scrubber system, as the in-line option has earlier only been available with open loop systems.

The retrofittings are slated for Q4 2015 and Q1 2016.
