Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) and COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry subsidiary COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry (Dalian) (CHI Dalian) Tuesday entered a collaboration framework agreement to manufacture and market sulphur oxide (SOx) scrubbers.
The rectangular-shaped scrubber, developed by Mitsubishi, features superior space saving essential for on board installations.
The newly signed collaborative framework agreement allows Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, MHPS and CHI Dalian to provide the scrubber design, manufacture and installation processes under one roof for customer convenience.
Under the agreement, CHI Dalian will manufacture, assemble and deliver the SOx scrubbers and install them on ships.
“The rectangular SOx scrubber was developed for marine use by combining MHPS' comprehensive exhaust gas treatment technologies, cultivated through its exhaust gas desulfurization systems for thermal power plants, with Mitsubishi Shipbuilding's marine engineering expertise,” says Mitsubishi.
“By installing the desulphurisation system, with its strong track record, efficiently within the limited space available on a ship, the amount of SO2 contained in the vessel's exhaust gas when using conventional 3.5% sulphur-content fuel can be reduced to a level that conforms to the new emissions regulations coming into effect worldwide in 2020.”
