Wallenius Wilhelmsen joins CSA 2020

Wallenius Wilhelmsen has joined the Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 (CSA 2020), increasing the organisation's membership to 35 shipowners operating a combined fleet of almost 2,500 vessels.

CSA 2020 represents commercial and passenger shipping companies and aims to support the use of exhaust gas cleaning systems as a way to meet the upcoming IMO 2020 sulphur regulations in shipping.

Roger Strevens, vice president global sustainability at Wallenius Wilhelmsen, said: “The implementation of the IMO 2020 0.5 percent global sulphur cap is supported by the company, but it does represent a significant challenge for the shipping industry, not least from an anticipated hike in fuel costs and potential availability and quality problems.

“To mitigate the risk and costs associated with these challenges, Wallenius Wilhelmsen will use low sulphur fuels on the majority of its fleet and scrubbers on the rest of its vessels. We join CSA 2020, to help ensure the wider industry and its stakeholders have a sound scientific understanding of the operational and environmental performance of scrubbers.”

Wallenius Wilhlemsen’s fleet includes approximately 130 ro-ro vessels, 23 of which will be fitted with exhaust gas cleaning systems by the end of 2021.

Other companies that have recently joined the alliance include Hammonia Reederei, International Seaways, Chandris (Hellas) and Genco Shipping & Trading.
