Scrubber technology firm Pacific Green Technologies (PGTK) on Tuesday (8 September) said it has successfully installed its 100th ENVI-Marine™ exhaust gas cleaning system.
PGTK said its ENVI-Marine™ exhaust gas cleaning systems have now been installed on more than 40 different ship types, including containers, bulk carriers and oil tankers.
The installations have been completed predominantly in China in conjunction with PGTK’s joint venture partner, PowerChina SPEM.
“We are very proud to have reached this milestone in our marine division. Although the industry has been in turmoil so far in 2020 with oil price pressure and the consumer demand effects of Covid-19, we have started to see positive signs with a significant increase in enquiries over the past few months for our ENVI-Marine™ System,” said Scott Poulter, PGTK’s Chief Executive
PGTK said it has continued to expand its technologies through its acquisition of ENGIN in December 2019 so that its portfolio now includes Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) and Water Desalination.
“Pacific Green is now targeting specific industries and sectors where its technology enhances the growing trend for Cleantech solutions,” added Poulter.
PGTK’s joint venture with PowerChina SPEM, one of the world’s largest engineering, procurement and construction companies with annual revenues of around USD 50 billion, combines elite technical expertise with unrivalled production capabilities in China ensuring PGTK can scale efficiently in each industry sector.
