The deal is its biggest green technology retrofit contract to date.
Sembcorp Marine won its biggest green technology retrofits contract to date, awarded by Maran Tankers for the installation of marine scrubbers and ballast water management systems on 13 of the Greek owner’s vessels.
According to an announcement, four suezmax tankers will be fitted with marine scrubbers and ballast water management systems between the third quarter of 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2019, whilst a further nine Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCC) will have marine scrubbers installed between May 2019 and February 2020.
The installation of 13 marine scrubbers and four ballast water management systems in total will take place at Sembcorp Marine’s Tuas Boulevard Yard and Admiralty Yard.
Sembcorp Marine has been actively marketing its turn-key green technology retrofits solutions, which include project management, vessel survey, integration design engineering, green technology equipment supply, and retrofitting services conducted within scheduled vessel dry-dockings.
With the latest contract from Maran Tankers, Sembcorp Marine now has an installation track record of four marine scrubbers and 23 ballast water management systems.
Semb-Eco LUV expects to receive the US Coast Guard Type Approval certification in the coming months. It is the only ballast water management system to be researched, developed, manufactured, and factory-tested in Singapore.
