IMO 2020: When Bigger is Better (Why You Need a Gas Scrubber Manufacturer With Huge Production Capacity)

Everywhere one looks there seems to be a rise in small-scale specialization – micro-breweries, artisanal coffee roasters etc. But, for shipowners hoping to start 2020 with an IMO-compliant scrubber that earns a quick payoff, it is large-scale specialization that ticks the boxes.

Scorpio Bulkers Inc. orders a further 9 scrubbers from Pacific Green Technologies Inc. for a combined value of $13.0m

Scorpio Bulkers Inc. (“Scorpio Bulkers”) has confirmed that it has ordered a further 9 ENVI-Marine™ emission control systems (the “Systems”) for vessels it owns or manages in 2020, at a combined cost of USD$13.0m. The order is on top of the 28 Systems already ordered by Scorpio Bulkers, as announced in December 2018. The Systems that are being fitted are a ‘hybrid ready’ design, which allows them to be upgraded to a ‘closed loop’ configuration at a future date.

How To Choose The Right Scrubber Specialist

Scrubber uptake quadrupled in 2018. Around this time last year, just over 500 scrubbers had been installed or ordered. By the end of this year, 3 500 vessels are expected to have scrubbers.

With such radical growth, shipowners are right to have questions about how their scrubber needs will be satisfied. But scrubber suppliers are not made equal.

There are three things every owner should consider when choosing a scrubber specialist. But some don’t.

The Irresponsible Distortion of Science Muddying the Open Loop Scrubber Debate
