OPEN loop scrubbers
The open loop is the most frequently used system at open sea. The process water is discharged directly back to sea while complying fully with the IMO regulations.
Scrubbers are designed to reduce 99% of sulphur emissions while using regular HFO fuels. How does this work?
VDL AEC Maritime offers an unique all in one solution that cools gases, removes sulphur and eliminates almost all particulates at the same time. The scrubber has an open tower structure without moving parts.
VDL AEC Maritime scrubbers are extremely compact and always tailor made, designed to fit the space available in new build or retrofit. VDL AEC Maritime offers closed loop scrubbers, open loop and hybrid scrubbers. These three systems have an inline configuration, where the scrubber is directly attached to the engine(s), which makes the system even more compact.
