Boomsma Shipping signs contract for first scrubber for their fleet with an option for two more.

Boomsma Shipping has taken the step to turn to scrubbers in order to comply with the IMO2020 regulations coming into play from 1st of January 2020. They have signed a contract for a first Scrubber from Value Maritime with an option for two more.

Boomsma Shipping has a range of box-shaped, multi-purpose, dry cargo vessels. Their first scrubber will be installed on one of the following three vessels: Frisian Ocean, Frisiana or Marfaam.  All these three multi-purpose vessels are in the 8000-8500 DWT range with a 3.0MW engine.

Since the chosen scrubber system from Value Maritime is “plug and play” and relatively easy to install, they will decide at a later date which vessel to install first. Later next year, Boomsma Shipping will have the opportunity to exercise the option and undertake installation for their other two vessels.

Value Maritime has reinvented scrubbing and will deliver a hybrid ready Scrubber system.

They have developed a small prefabricated, pre-installed, “plug and play” EGCS in a 20 ft road transportable casing, that filters Sulphur and ultrafine particulate matter (99% PM10 & 90% PM 2.5) from a vessel’s exhaust gasses. The system assures compliance with the IMO 0,1% Sulphur cap (SECA).

The EGCS comes in three sizes suitable for vessels with different engine size. These include: 3.0MW (0.1%), 6.0MW (0.1%) and 9.0MW (0.1%).

The systems are hybrid ready and a closed-loop module in a similar size casing can be provided if preferred.
