Clean Marine has been selected by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in South Korea to supply exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) for two new MR tankers. IMO’s convention for the reduction of sulfur dioxides demands that sulfur emission levels in Emission Control Areas (ECAs) shall be cut to 0.1% from 2015 and that the global emissions level must not exceed 0.5% from the year 2020.
