Navios ShipManagement Inc., a member of Navios Group, is looking to hire DuPont Clean Technologies as its preferred supplier of exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) for the company’s vessels.

Under a letter of intent, Navios and DuPont Clean Technologies said that they would carry out a joint feasibility study and techno-economic analysis of marine scrubbing units for retrofitting or new build installation on a variety of vessels, from bulk carriers to containers and tankers.

The planned feasibility study will examine the viability of fitting DuPont™ Marine Scrubbers on both retrofit and newbuild projects.

“Talks with Navios reached this point because both companies are focused on efficiently reducing emissions. With our technical capabilities and flexible, reliable exhaust gas cleaning systems, we are able to ensure that Navios maintains its emissions standards with full confidence,” Marco Dierico, business development manager for DuPont™ Marine Scrubbers, said.

Navios Group operates a fleet of 163 owned and long-term charter-in vessels ranging from Capesize to Panamax, Ultra-Handymax and Handy size bulk carriers, container vessels and MR2, LR1 VLCC and chemical tanker vessels deployed for freight movement around the world.
