New water treatment solution ordered for five VLECs

Alfa Laval’s PureNOx solution

UEC is a joint venture between Jaccar Holdings of Luxemburg and Germany's Hartmann Group for the commercial management of ethane carriers. The five VLECs, to be built in China by Dalian Shipyard for Chinese shipowner JHW Engineering & Contracting, will employ EGR to reduce NOx emissions.  
“Receiving this breakthrough order so soon after the introduction of Alfa Laval PureNOx Prime confirms that we’ve succeeded in our goals,” said Kristina Effler, Alfa Laval's global business manager for the Swedish company's Water Treatment Exhaust Gas Emissions unit. “PureNOx Prime retains the proven PureNOx performance, but its smaller footprint, leaner design and lower investment cost are all adapted to market demands. Clearly, the market is responding.”
Like all ships built after January 2016, the VLECs will be required to meet stringent Tier III NOx limits when operating in the Emission Control Area (ECA) off the North American coast. Each vessel will be served by a PureNOx Prime 100 system, which is the smallest of the three PureNOx Prime capacities and comprises one centrifugal separator. PureNOx Prime will be integrated into the vessels’ EGR engines, which will be manufactured for MAN Diesel & Turbo by Hyundai Heavy Industries’ Engine & Machinery Division (HHI-EMD) in South Korea.


PureNOx Prime, Alfa Laval’s new PureNOx solution for water treatment in exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), will be part of EGR systems on five very large ethane carriers (VLECs) to be operated by United Ethane Carriers (UEC). The order was placed by the engine provider MAN Diesel & Turbo.
