The total order consists of equipping nine 92.000 dwt post-panamax Bulk Carriers and one 114.000 dwt Aframax Tanker with Langh Tech Open Loop Hybrid Ready systems, plus options for more shipsets to follow.
The scope of supply comprises of U-type scrubber towers for all the 10 vessels. In each installation the main engine and all auxiliaries will be connected to the multi-inlet scrubber tower. Langh Tech will deliver all the equipment necessary for a fully working open loop system.
The deal also includes commissioning and certification of the systems. All of the systems will be delivered within 2019.
“We have selected Langh Tech for offering an attractive combination of system quality, simplicity and proven track record,” says Paschalis Diamantides, owner of Marmaras and Delta Tankers.
“We felt comfortable with their production facilities and we valued highly their inherent experience on scrubber systems as ship operators as well.
“They were able to facilitate our tight delivery schedule demand and showed great flexibility in formulating a custom-fit scheme for serving our specific post-panamax and aframax tanker fleet retrofit program.”
Marmaras Navigation and Delta Tankers has a total fleet of 32 bulk carriers and 28 oil tankers.
“It is our honour to serve Marmaras and Delta Tankers in Greece and we are very excited to work on a demanding retrofit project with tight deliveries and analytical project management,” mentions Laura Langh-Lagerlöf, Commercial Director of Langh Tech.
“The systems will be designed to fit restricted engine casing spaces and their low operating costs will offer a significantly fast pay-back to the shipowner. We have further committed to provide a strong technical support during the whole installation and commissioning procedure.”
