Wärtsilä to Equip Japanese Bulker Duo with Scrubber Systems

The technology group Wärtsilä has been contracted to supply the exhaust gas cleaning systems for two new 56,000 dwt Handymax bulk carriers.

The ships are being built at Japan’s Oshima Shipbuilding for Tokyo-based NYK Bulk & Projects Carriers (NYK BP), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha.

Wärtsilä will also provide project management and commissioning of the systems. The order with Wärtsilä was booked in June.

These are the first vessels owned or chartered by NYK Group having exhaust gas cleaning systems installed. By fitting the Wärtsilä system, the ships will be compliant with the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) SOx regulations, which come into force in 2020.

The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery to the yard commencing in July 2018. The first vessel is due to be delivered to NYK in the fourth quarter of 2018, and the second in the first quarter 2019.
