Songa Shipmanagement orders 14 scrubber retrofits

20 May 2018

Glasgow based Songa Shipmanagement have contracted CR Ocean Engineering (CROE) as the supplier of exhaust gas cleaning systems, also known as scrubbers, for its oil/chemical tankers and heavy lift vessels with an option to add scrubbers to additional vessels.

The scrubbing systems will enter commercial operations commencing from 2018 to the beginning of 2020.

The small size and compact configuration of the CROE system allows them to be installed in new builds or retrofitted to existing vessels.

“We are proud to be working with Songa,” said Nick Confuorto, CROE president and COO. “They have proven to be an excellent company to work with and it’s an honor for us to help them face this major emissions challenge.”

In addition to the existing 0.10% sulphur limit for marine fuel at Emission Control Areas (ECAs) in Europe and North America, the rest of the world will need to reduce the sulphur fuel emissions and associated emissions from their marine engines and boilers to 0.50% sulphur starting January 1, 2020.

“We meet our corporate responsibility knowing that a cleaner environment is good for the planet. And that’s everyone’s business,” says Kenneth MacLeod, Managing Director at Songa Shipmanagement.
