Alfa Laval to provide exhaust gas cleaning systems for two vessels


Swedish engineering solutions provider Alfa Laval has won a deal from an undisclosed customer to provide eight of its PureSOX exhaust gas cleaning systems.

The SEK125m ($14m) deal was booked in Alfa Laval marine division’s business unit Boiler & Gas Systems, and will see the PureSOX hybrid scrubbers installed on board two vessels.

Delivery of the systems is currently scheduled for 2018 and 2019.

Alfa Laval marine division president Peter Leifland said: “I am very pleased to announce this large order for our scrubber systems.

“It confirms that Alfa Laval PureSOx is an attractive and proven solution for the reduction of sulphur oxides.”

"The PureSOx system features various compliance profiles to help shipping companies meet the global sulphur emission cap that is due to enter effect in 2020."

The company also noted that its PureSOx hybrid scrubber solution is capable of using both seawater and freshwater to clean emissions from engines.

The PureSOx system was launched in 2012 and is currently available in two scrubber designs, U-design and I-design.

It also features various compliance profiles to help shipping companies meet the global sulphur emission cap that is due to enter effect in 2020.

Global logistics and marine shipping specialist Grimaldi Group previously ordered seven Alfa Laval PureSOx systems in December.

The systems feature U-design scrubbers and are planned to be installed on Grimaldi Group’s newbuild carrier vessels.
