Norway-based Wilhelmsen Ship Management and technology group Wärtsilä have signed a 5-year contract on the maintenance of exhaust gas cleaning systems installed in three vessels.

The agreement ensures that the units, managed by Wilhelmsen Ship Management, are fully MARPOL compliant and can fulfill the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) new, stricter sulphur limits, coming into force on January 1, 2020.

All three vessels have a 25 MW Wärtsilä Hybrid Scrubber System, which has the flexibility to operate in both open and closed loop, using seawater to remove SOx from the exhaust gas. In closed loop mode additional reagent is used in combination with sea water.

The services covered under this agreement, signed in December 2017, include annual audits and safety tests to ensure ongoing MARPOL compliance, calibration of the Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) and water monitoring system as well as operational training courses for the vessels’ crew.
