COSCO Shipping subsidiary to trial Mitsubishi scrubbers

07 Jun 2018

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has agreed to collaborate with COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry (Dalian) to participant in a demonstration test project of its self-developed scrubber unit onto a large vessel owned by China COSCO Shipping.

The scrubber was developed by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (Mitsubishi Shipbuilding), and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS).

“The new product, which can be accommodated in limited installation space onboard, has been developed by combining MHPS' comprehensive exhaust gas treatment technologies and Mitsubishi Shipbuilding's marine engineering expertise,” says MHI.

“It reduces sulphur dioxide (SO2) in the exhaust gas of 3.5%-sulphur-content fuels to that of 0.1%-sulphur-content fuels, conforming with newly introduced SOx emissions regulations coming into effect globally as of January 1, 2020.”

Moving forward, MHI also notes of future plans by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding and MHPS to collaborate with COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry (Dalian) to market and manufacture MHI scrubbers.
