Finland-based technology company Valmet has secured an order to supply exhaust gas cleaning systems for seven new building container vessels.

Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering will build the 23,000 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) vessels in South Korea for Korean Shipping company Hyundai Merchant Marine.

Valmet will begin deliveries of the scrubber system this year. The deliveries will include tailor-made hybrid systems for main and generator engines, including auxiliary systems and automation.

The latest order is expected to further strengthen the company’s position as a scrubber supplier for passenger and cargo vessels.

Valmet Marine Scrubber Systems senior manager Anssi Mäkelä said: “We are proud to provide our technology to the Asian market. Our scrubber system will ensure a sustainable and reliable exhaust gas cleaning for the ships.”
