Inline scrubbers made simple

1 January 2016

AEC will be installing so-called inline scrubbers for Scandlines. Marcel Clephas, General Manager at AEC Maritime explains: “In this case an inline closed loop scrubber was the best solution due to space limitations. But limited space does not automatically mean this is the only or best solution”, he explains. “This configuration, where the scrubber is directly attached to the engine, is indeed very compact and flexible. Still, other things need to be weighed, such as added complexity and no possibilities for a by-pass. Our ‘regular’ open loop, closed loop and hybrid scrubbers are the most compact in the market because of their simplicity, so space may not be the constricting factor. For each vessel, there are specific considerations. It’s our mission to find an ideal solution, together with our clients.”

Testimonial

“We were intrigued by the simplicity of the AEC scrubbing system. Their technology works without filters. There is no pollution on the deck, no filters to clean and no maintenance. After testing the AEC closed loop scrubber on the Schleswig-Holstein we were so convinced, we ordered scrubbing systems for three more vessels.”
