wins 18 MORE contracts
As ship owners all over the world rush to install scrubbers in time for the 2020 Sulphur Cap, Baltec Marine is pleased to announce completion of the world’s largest turnkey scrubber retrofit of two hybrid systems. Based on the success of these two pilot projects, the company has been contracted to oversee 18 additional Ultra Large Container Ships in 2019.
“The ship owner turned to us from the start because they did not want to handle the work in-house, and they knew our team had the experience necessary to drive a project of this size,” says Ronnie Petersson, Baltec Marine’s Executive Director.
The installation work took place while the 16000 TEU vessels were in dry dock in Shenzhen, China, starting in October of 2018. “Given the quick turnaround required, the fact that we could manage to contract the shipyard directly was a big advantage,” adds Managing Director Andrzej Dzienski.
The massive undertaking consisted of two pilot projects in which Baltec oversaw every step, from engineering to the commissioning of two different hybrid scrubber systems. The company plans to replicate their success when they install 18 more systems back-to-back for the same client in 2019.
