A number of companies have recently joined The Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 (CSA 2020), increasing the organisation’s membership to 35 shipowners operating a combined fleet of almost 2,500 vessels.

Norwegian/Swedish shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen is the latest shipowner to join the alliance. Other companies that have recently joined include Hammonia Reederei, International Seaways, Chandris (Hellas) and Genco Shipping & Trading.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen operates a fleet of about 130 vessels, of which 23 will feature scrubbers by the end of 2021.

Genco Shipping & Trading plans to install scrubbers on 17 Capesize vessels with retrofit options for an additional 15 smaller bulk carriers. The decision follows extensive evaluation and analysis of the environmental impact of the technology.

“With the addition of these new members to CSA 2020, we can now gather further data on which shipowners, regulators and port authorities can make more informed decisions on how best to comply with the global sulphur cap,” Ian Adams, Executive Director, CSA 2020, said.

Other than the 35 CSA 2020 members that have already adopted exhaust gas cleaning as an environmentally responsible means of meeting the global sulphur cap, the alliance has identified a further 242 ship owning/operating companies with investments in EGCS technology.
