RCL Orders Four Alfa Laval Scrubbers

Royal Caribbean Cruises has ordered four Alfal Laval PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning systems, including the first test inline hybrid version of the scrubber, which is to be installed on Adventure of the Seas.

Three other PureSOx 2.0 systems will be installed as retrofits aboard Freedom of the Seas, Independence of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas. Alfa Laval’s deliveries to RCL will extend over the summer of 2015.

The Freedom Class ships will each receive a hybrid scrubber with multiple inlets, while Adventure of the Seas will receive an inline hybrid with one main engine connected.

”We were very interested in working with Alfa Laval on the inline version of PureSOx, because it addresses the unique challenges of cruise ship building,” said Kevin Douglas, Vice President, Technical Projects and Newbuild at RCL.

”We are keen to see scrubber technology develop, especially in this direction.”
