DeltaLangh has been selected by Deltamarin Floating Construction to deliver an exhaust gas cleaning system for installation onboard the roll-on / roll-off (ro-ro) vessel M/V Bore Song, owned by Bore.

Under the contract, DeltaLangh will provide a combined closed and open loop scrubber system for 12MW engine output with the patented water treatment and dewatering plant.

DeltaLangh’s scrubber will help the vessel limit its emissions to correspond to the use of fuel with a sulphur content of less than 0.1%, a requirement to be maintained by all the ships operating in sulphur emission control area (SECA).

"Using caustic soda, the exhaust gas cleaning process keeps the closed loop fresh water pH at optimum level."

Bore CEO Håkan Modig said: "The scrubber solution chosen for M/V Bore Song is well-suited for the vessel and the customer she is operating for."

Using caustic soda, the exhaust gas cleaning process keeps the closed loop fresh water pH at optimum level.

It will also minimise the amount of waste since the water content of the residual sludge from the water treatment process is very low.

DeltaLangh managing director Robert Segercrantz said: "The DeltaLangh scrubber provides a unique environmentally friendly scrubber solution, which also efficiently cleans the exhaust gas washing water."

The scrubber will be installed by Deltamarin Floating Construction at the end of the year on a turnkey basis. It will be installed at a repair yard in Northern Europe over a 14-day docking period and commissioning will take place in January 2015.

This system has been in operation on M/S Laura of Langh Ship for the past year and a half, and four other Langh Ship vessels will be equipped with this system.
