The Netherlands-based shipping company Boomsma Shipping has decided to install scrubbers on its vessels as a way of complying with the IMO2020 regulations that enter into force on January 1, 2020.

The company said it signed a contract for a first scrubber with Value Maritime with an option for two more.

Boomsma Shipping has a range of box-shaped, multi-purpose, dry cargo vessels. Their first scrubber will be installed on one of the following three vessels: Frisian Ocean, Frisiana or Marfaam. All these three multi-purpose vessels are in the 8000-8500 DWT range with a 3.0MW engine.

Since the chosen scrubber system from Value Maritime is “plug and play” Boomsma will decide at a later date which vessel to install first. The company will have an opportunity to exercise the options later next year.

“We have looked at scrubbers for our fleet before, but conventional systems did not fit our vessels and were financially and environmentally not an interesting option. Whereas Value Maritime ticks all the boxes,” Johan Boomsma, Director Boomsma Shipping BV, commented.
