Spotted: Norwegian Escape Flaunts World’s Biggest Scrubber Systems


In today’s spotted we bring you what is deemed to be the world’s biggest scrubber system, which has been installed aboard the Norwegian Cruise Lines’ newest cruise vessel Norwegian Escape.

Yara Marine Technologies’ five SOx scrubber systems, installed aboard the largest cruise ship in Norwegian Cruise Lines’s fleet, make the ship more environmentally-friendly.

The inline scrubber is designed as a solution to fight air pollution at sea, with a capacity to clean emissions from 76.8 MW engine power. An inline scrubber is basically a “gas washing machine,” a simple cylinder that replaces the silencer of a ship engine and cleans the exhaust gas, reducing SOx emissions by up to 99%, Yara Marine said.

M/V Norwegian Escape can carry up to 4,248 passengers and 1,731 crew members. Diesel consumption at full cruising load is about 11 tons per hour, fueling an engine capacity equivalent to about 1,000 cars.

“The system performs as guaranteed, compliance test was passed with flying colors and we had full support from Yara Marine Technologies during installation, commissioning and start up,” said Christer Karlsson, Senior Vice President Newbuilding, Norwegian Cruise Line.
