Singapore-based Quantum Pacific Shipping has secured a loan to finance the purchase and installation of exhaust gas cleaning systems on its vessels.

According to data provided by law firm Watson Farley & Williams Singapore, BNP Paribas and the shipping firm reached an agreement on a loan of up to USD 40 million.

The scrubbers would be installed on the fleet of vessels owned by Quantum Pacific Shipping and managed by Eastern Pacific Shipping.
