Dutch shipping company Visser Shipping has signed a contract to outfit its three 9.0 MW containerships with hybrid-ready scrubber systems.Signed with Value Maritime, the contract includes an option for a fourth scrubber.The open-loop scrubbers are set to be installed on Visser Shipping’s vessels between October and December this year in order to be ready before IMO 2020 goes into effect on January 1, 2020.Visser Shipping currently has a fleet of five feeder container vessels providing transport throughout Northwest Europe.“The decision to install the new type of scrubbers from Value Maritime fits well into our philosophy. It ensures cost efficiency in the long term for our clients and also helps conserve the environment,” Visser Shipping said.“We have been investigating scrubbers from their beginning and found the retrofit to complex and too expensive, with the scrubbers from Value Maritime installation is more simple and costs are more in line with the size of our ships,” the company added.Value Maritime has developed a small prefabricated, pre-installed, “plug and play” exhaust gas cleaning system in a 20ft transportable casing, that filters sulphur and ultrafine particulate matter from vessel’s exhaust gasses. The system assures compliance with the IMO 0,1% Sulphur cap (SECA).
