The HYBRID scrubber system can run in both OPEN or CLOSED loop mode. The process water is thus either re-circulated or directly discharged back to sea. Switching between open and closed mode is done by using remote controlled valves.
“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 VDL AEC Maritime closed loop scrubber on the Schleswig-Holstein we were so convinced, we ordered scrubbing systems for three more vessels.”
