Finnish automation technology company Valmet Ojy on Monday (11 May) said it has signed a contract with Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. Shimonoseki Shipyard to deliver hybrid scrubber systems and water treatment units to two ferries.
The order was placed in the first quarter of 2020 and each vessel will be equipped with two identical Valmet Marine Scrubber towers for each main engine and a water treatment unit as well as Valmet’s marine automation system, it noted.
The vessels are expected to be delivered from Mitsubishi Shimonoseki shipyard to Meimon Taiyo Ferry Co., Ltd. in 2022, with Valmet’s equipment deliveries scheduled between the last quarter of 2020 and the second quarter of 2021.
“With the global IMO 2020 regulations for sulfuric oxide emission in place, the marine scrubber business is booming around the world,” said Timo Lamminen, Product Sales Manager, Marine Scrubber sales, Pulp and Energy business line, Asia-Pacific, Valmet.
“Valmet has a strong position in the scrubber market on both newbuilds and retrofits. This is our first delivery to the Japanese market, and we are very pleased that Mitsubishi Shipbuilding and Meimon Taiyo have trusted us to supply our innovative scrubber system.”
“Valmet is one of the world’s leading suppliers of marine emission control systems,” says Anssi Mäkelä, Senior Manager, Marine Scrubber Systems, Pulp and Energy business line, Valmet.
“As a one proof of this, we have been the first supplier to introduce the hybrid scrubber system to the market.
“We are continuously developing innovative products and solutions. These Meimon Taiyo ferries will be equipped with Valmet’s water treatment units offering vessel owners the lowest operating expenses and the easiest use in the market.”
The company shared that the delivery will include Valmet Marine Scrubber hybrid systems which can be operated both in closed and open loop mode.
Both vessels will be equipped with two identical scrubber towers for each main engine and Valmet Ultra Filter CR water treatment unit, it notes.
