Sembcorp Marine has won its biggest green technology retrofits contract to date, awarded by Maran Tankers for the installation of marine scrubbers and ballast water management systems on 13 of the Greek owner’s vessels.
Under the contract, four suezmax tankers will be fitted with marine scrubbers and ballast water management systems between the 3Q18 and 4Q19, while a further nine very large crude carriers (VLCC) will have marine scrubbers installed between May 2019 and February 2020.
The installation of 13 marine scrubbers and four ballast water management systems in total will take place at Sembcorp’s Tuas Boulevard Yard and Admiralty Yard.
Since the entry into force of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Ballast Water Management Convention in 2017, and with the 0.5% global fuel sulfur cap taking effect on 1 January 2020, Sembcorp has been actively marketing its turn-key green technology retrofits.
These solutions include project management, vessel survey, integration design engineering, green technology equipment supply and retrofitting services conducted within scheduled vessel dry-dockings.
