    Clean Marine receives a seven-system order from Inventor Chemical Tankers

    Clean Marine, a market leader in the development of Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS), has secured a multi-vessel contract from Inventor Chemical Tankers AS (ICT), the company said in its press release. The agreement, covering seven 19900 DWT chemical tankers, marks the launch of the firm’s revolutionary CleanSOx Compact Hybrid Allstream scrubber to the marketplace.

    According to Clean Marine CEO Nils Høy-Petersen, the company has been exclusively dedicated to EGCS solutions since its inception in 2006. “Our latest product has been designed to ensure shipowners can achieve simple, cost and space efficient compliance with the IMO’s SOx regulations, coming into force in 2020,” he says. “The new Compact scrubber has all the advantages of our existing, patented EGCS technology, with added benefits for shipowners looking for ease of retrofitting, especially where space is at a premium.”

    Høy-Petersen notes that the system’s 'Allstream' capability allows it to treat exhaust from all sources on-board vessels with no back pressure in the exhaust system, while its compact design means it delivers very significant size and weight advantages against market alternatives. “What this means is minimal impact upon the vessel with maximum emission cleaning performance – exactly what the market is looking for.”

    Høy-Petersen adds: “Our system is simple, compliant, and ensures clean sailing on existing heavy fuels. And with our unique understanding of both EGCS technology and shipowners’ requirements, we are confident we can offer outstanding EGCS solutions to our customers."

    After an exhaustive review of competing EGCS suppliers, ICT has partnered with Clean Marine and technical manager Diamond Shipmanagement Pte Ltd, to manage the installation and commissioning of the systems aboard seven vessels, built between 2015 and 2017. All vessels were ECO designed and built by the Japanese-based Fukuoka Shipyard.

    Clean Marine offers a portfolio of market proven EGCS solutions, with orders received from shipowners and yards such as BP/Hyundai Mipo, Stolt Tankers/Hudong, AET/Samsung. The firm’s unique Allstream technology is suitable for a diverse range of vessel types, including all types of tanker vessels, dry bulk car carriers and container vessels.

    Clean Marine AS has since 2006 invested more than 30 MUSD in development of an Exhaust Gas Cleaning System (EGCS), better known as a scrubber, for the maritime industry. Through extensive testing in the workshop and in the field, its marine scrubbers have been developed into a highly flexible allstream exhaust gas cleaning device for existing and new ships. The Allstream feature allows all exhaust sources on-board to be cleaned by one common cleaning unit, offering a competitive solution that is easy to operate. Clean Marine offers ship owners, engine makers and ship builders equipment and support needed to install an EGCS on both new buildings and existing ships.

    Inventor Chemical Tankers AS (ICT) is a Norwegian-based owner, that boasts a fleet of 12 advanced steel chemical tankers, all of which are operated through the Hansa Tankers trading platform.

    Diamond Shipmanagment Pte Ltd (DSMPL) is a Singaporean-based ship management company that specialises in managing chemical tankers.
