Scorpio Group has placed an order for a further 23 exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) for its bulkers and tankers.

Under the deals with Pacific Green Technologies, nine scrubbers with a combined cost of USD 13 million would be installed on Scorpio Bulkers’ fleet, while another 14 units were ordered by Scorpio Tankers at a value of USD 20.3 million.

The latest orders for ENVI-Marine systems were agreed on top of earlier contracts for 28 and 52 units to be installed on the group’s bulkers and tankers, respectively.

The earlier orders by Scorpio Bulkers and Scorpio Tankers were valued at around USD 42.4 million and USD 79.6 million.

Pacific Green Technologies said that the systems that are being fitted are a ‘hybrid ready’ design, which allows them to be upgraded to a ‘closed loop’ configuration at a future date.

Scorpio Group has invested “in the latest generation of fuel-efficient vessels and the hybrid-ready ENVI-Marine™ system will give the company the return-on-investment and flexibility it needs to face the complexities of IMO 2020,” Scott Poulter, Pacific Green Technologies Executive Director, said.
