COSCO Heavy Industry, the industrial division of China Ocean Shipping Company (COSCO), and scrubber manufacturer SAACKE Marine Systems (SAACKE) in April entered into a cooperation agreement to produce emission control systems for all ship types.
The products will be delivered under the project name COSAACKE.
The cooperation agreement with the subsidiaries COSCO (Weihai) Shipbuilding Marine Technology and Nantong Ocean Ship Equipment was preceded by half a year of discussions.
“Our emission control system has proven itself in practice, is flexible in terms of the closed-loop or hybrid process, and thanks to the SAACKE emission control system, it also enables the monitoring of all data, even on land,” says Peter Breidenich, Director Marine Systems.
“This as well as the short amortization period and our years of engineering experience have quickly convinced the partner.”
