Mitsubishi Shipbuilding and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems signed a collaboration framework agreement with COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry (Dalian) on manufacturing and marketing rectangular sulfur-oxide (SOx) scrubbers.

MHI companies say that the rectangular shape of scrubbers paves way for space saving essential for onboard installations.

Based on the newly signed collaborative framework agreement, the partners will start providing the rectangular scrubber in all processes from design and manufacture to installation onboard.

The rectangular SOx scrubber was developed for marine use by combining MHPS’ comprehensive exhaust gas treatment technologies, cultivated through its exhaust gas desulfurization systems for thermal power plants, with Mitsubishi Shipbuilding’s marine engineering expertise.

The partnership is being pursued in anticipation of greater demand for scrubbers ahead of the IMO’s 2020 sulphur cap. Scrubbers enable owners to continue using fuel oil with 3.5 percent of sulphur content.

Under the agreement, CHI Dalian will manufacture, assemble and deliver the SOx scrubbers and install them on ships.

Going forward, the cooperation between CHI Dalian, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding and MHPS will set to stage for the companies to ramp up sales activities of the scrubbers.
