21 Jan 2020

Netherlands shipping company Wanmar has signed a contract with Value Maritime (VM) for the installation of its 3.0 megawatt capacity scrubber on the cargo vessel mv Donau.

The 8,267 t dwt ship is owned and operated by Rederij Wantij BV, Netherlands; the vessel sails for Longship BV at Groningen, Netherlands and mostly trades in Baltic, North Sea and sometimes in the Mediterranean.

“Wanmar shipping company has chosen to equip the vessel with a scrubber mainly because of the very rapidly changing environmental rules that have major financial consequences,” said Rederij Wantij Captain/Owner John Hartman. 

“To improve our position on the freight market, we have decided to equip our ship with a Value Maritime scrubber. We have also opted for a Value Maritime scrubber because of its plug and play concept.

Captain/Owner John Hartman has also decided to equip VM scrubber on mv Donau for its plug and play concept. in an effort to improve their position on the freight market.

“The scrubber is fairly easy to install with a very short installation time. Another nice side effect is that the scrubber also filters ultra-fine particulate matter and even saves CO2 emissions compared to using Marine Gasoil.” he concluded.

VM scrubber 3.0 MW is a small prefabricated, pre-installed, “plug and play” EGCS housed in a 20 ft road transportable casing that filters sulphur and ultrafine particulate matter (99% PM10 & 90% PM 2.5) from a vessel’s exhaust gasses. The system assures compliance with the IMO 0.1% Sulphur cap (SECA).
