May 12 - Dutch ship owner and operator Royal Wagenborg has ordered W

The Balticborg and Bothniaborg are employed on a long-term freight contract with Smurfit Kappa for the weekly shipment of paper products between Haraholmen, Bremen, Sheerness and Terneuzen. These operating routes fall within the Baltic and North Seas' sulphur emission control areas (SECA).

By installing Wärtsilä scrubber systems, the vessels will comply with the regulations covering emissions of sulphur oxides (SOx) while using conventional residual marine fuel (HFO).

The systems chosen for these vessels are Wärtsilä hybrid scrubbers, which enable the use of either closed or open loop technology to remove SOx from the exhaust.

The retrofitting of these systems will take place in the autumn of this year. These will be Wärtsilä's first deliveries of its scrubber systems to Royal Wagenborg.
