Crude oil and refined petroleum transportation firm Stena Bulk Tuesday signed an exhaust gas scrubber solution agreement with Chinese scrubber manufacturer Shanghai Bluesoul Environment Technology to equip its Suezmax and IMOIIMAX fleets.
In total, Stena Bulk will equip 15 vessels with ‘Open Loop Hybrid Ready with Water Cleaning’ scrubbers and have an additional 6 options for installation prior to 2020.
Bluesoul is the first Chinese enterprise to be awarded Lloyd’s Register Exhaust Gas Cleaning System Machinery General Design Appraisal as well as DNV GL and ABS AiP.
“By installing scrubbers, we will be well equipped to meet the 2020 regulation and are protected from price volatility as well as fuel shortage,” says Erik Hånell, President & CEO Stena Bulk.
“In relation to market developments, today’s market predictions are attractive in theory and currently seems to be so in practice too, despite there being a couple of parameters that remain uncertain.
“However, there are opportunities already available today to lock in some of the uncertainty, which might be appealing when looking for a more secure investment.
“We are very happy to be able to confirm this order with Bluesoul, which has performed very well in terms of quality compared with more reputable manufacturers.”
