Scrubber(EGCS) System Engineering Solution

IMO regulations to reduce sulphur oxides (SOx) emissions from ships first came into force in 2005, under Annex VI of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (known as the MARPOL Convention). Since then, the limits on sulphur oxides have been progressively tightened.

From 1 January 2020, the limit for sulphur in fuel oil used on board ships operating outside designated emission control areas will be reduced to 0.50% m/m (mass by mass). This will significantly reduce the amount of sulphur oxides emanating from ships and should have major health and environmental benefits for the world, particularly for populations living close to ports and coasts.

Ships can limit the air pollutants by installing exhaust gas cleaning systems, also known as Scrubbers. This is accepted by flag States as an alternative means to meet the sulphur limit requirement. These scrubbers are designed to remove sulphur oxides(SOx) from the ship's engine and boiler exhaust gases. So a ship fitted with a scrubber can use heavy fuel oil, since the sulphur oxides emissions will be reduced to a level equivalent to the required fuel oil sulphur limit.

Ocean Tech Solutions offer comprehensive and cost effective Scrubber system (Exhaust gas cleaning system) engineering solutions with vast experience of highly qualified Marine Engineers, Piping Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Naval Architects, Structural and Electrical Engineers who can deliver the efficient engineering solutions for EGCS Open loop, Closed loop & Hybrid system complying.
