The mv Donau is a seagoing, general cargo vessel with worldwide class. The vessel is operated by Captain/Owner John Hartman and Captain/Owner Naftali Blokzijl. There is always a Captain/Owner present on the vessel. Both the Captains are grew up on the Dutch inland river barges and have more than 25 years experience at sea.

Why have you chosen the Value Maritime scrubber system?

Wanmar shipping company has chosen to equip the vessel with a scrubber mainly because of the very rapidly changing environmental rules that have major financial consequences. To improve our position on the freight market, we have decided to equip our ship with a Value Maritime scrubber. We have also opted for a Value Maritime scrubber because of its plug and play concept. The scrubber is fairly easy to install with a very short installation time. Another nice side effect is that the scrubber also filters ultra-fine particulate matter and even saves CO2 emissions compared to using Marine Gasoil. “

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.
