Singapore-based Ocean 21 Holdings Pte Ltd, a low-profile asset management company, has ordered three selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems from MAN Energy Solutions for installation on board a trio of new 87,000dwt bulk carriers.
The SCR high-pressure units, developed by MAN for two-stroke engines, are the first orders that MAN has received for these new systems.
The SCR installations will ensure that the bulk carriers, powered by single MAN B&W 6S46ME-B8.5 low-speed engines developing 9,900 kW at 84 rpm, meet IMO Tier III emission standards.
“The SCR-HP is the market’s most compact system,” said Ralph Klaunig, vice president, MAN Energy Solutions. “Regardless, it’s always a challenge – and an important milestone – to land a first reference but we expect MAN SCR-HP sales to push on now as a result of this order.”
Klaunig went on the reveal that MAN is now the only manufacturer to offer exhaust gas aftertreatment systems, as well as high pressure selective catalytic reduction and exhaust gas recirculation systems, including an electric turbo blower.
“It is another step towards a greener future for the shipping industry and global trade as a whole,” he declared.
