Noordwijk Ocean Services signs contract to outfit their Damen Combi freighter Bandura with new innovative EGCS from Value Maritime.
On 19 of September Noordwijk Ocean Services has signed a contract to outfit their freighter Bandura with the new innovative scrubber from Value Maritime. Installation will take place on February 2020.
The Bandura is a Damen Combi Freighter with 8000 deadweight and a 3.0MW engine.
Noordwijk Ocean services BV is operating mv Bandura since December 2010. The main company’s shipping route is Continent /USA. Since the very beginning Noordwijk Ocean Services provides quality service with utmost efficiency.
The company operates to the highest industry standards where environmental conscientiousness are not just procedural requirements, but a company culture.
Why has Noordwijk Ocean Services chosen for this Value Maritime scrubber?
“The Value Maritime scrubber is based on an innovative technology that not only allows to comply with the global 0.5% Sulphur Cap but is also able to reduce SOx emissions down to 0.1%, This allows our vessels to comply also in the Emission Control Areas. They also reduce PM and PAH emissions compared to burning compliant fuel. Sox, PAH, and PM are dangerous to human health. In addition, this EGCS allows our vessels to continue to burn HFO which is expected to be more economical compared to compliant fuels, thus helping us better manage financial risks and protect the company’s sustainability ”Anna Bandura – Managing Director at Noordwijk Ocean Services
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 20ft transportable casing, that filters Sulphur and ultrafine particulate matter (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%). Read more about Value Maritime’s new scrubbing technique
The scrubber is set to be installed on the Bandura in February 2020; just after the IMO 2020 goes into effect on 1 January.
In our production facility we have secured capacity for 50 VM scrubbers per year.
Production slots are available for delivery Q1 & Q2 2020.
