Clean Marine has signed a contract with the Chinese yard Huanghai Shipbuilding Co.Ltd. for the supply of exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) on two reefer/fishing support vessels, which are currently under construction. The contract also includes an option for delivery of additional EGCS on two identical sister vessels.
The vessels are owned by EF Transport (Malta) Ltd, whose fishing fleet is primarily engaged in the North-East Atlantic and is therefore highly exposed to the current IMO legislation, which calls for a maximum 0.1 percent sulphur level in air emissions in Emission Control Areas (ECA).
The installation of Clean Marine EGCS will enable the new reefers to comply with the existing and future emissions regulation without switching to more expensive fuels.
