Valmet to deliver scrubber systems to Mitsubishi
Valmet has reached an agreement with Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co. , Ltd. Shimonoseki Shipyard to supply two ferries with hybrid scrubber systems, and water treatment units.
Each vessel will be fitted for each main engine with two identical Valmet Marine Scrubber towers and a water treatment unit as well as Valmet's marine automation system, the company said in its statement.
The order was included in the first quarter 2020 commands issued by Valmet. The order 's value is not being disclosed.
The vessels will be sold to Meimon Taiyo Ferry Co., Ltd. in 2022 from the Mitsubishi Shimonoseki shipyard, with Valmet's machinery delivery expected for the last quarter of 2020 and the second quarter of 2021.
Mitsubishi Shimonoseki Shipyard, where the vessels are built with Valmet scrubbers, is situated on Japan's Kanmon Strait.
The distribution involves hybrid systems from Valmet Marine Scrubber which can be worked in both the closed and open loop configuration. Both vessels will be fitted with two equivalent scrubber towers per main engine and water treatment unit Valmet Ultra Filter CR. The scrubber solution uses Valmet's control system, Valmet DNA, to maximize the production of electricity and pollution.
