Alfa Laval Pure SOx systems for Exmar’s LPG carriers

Alfa Laval Pure SOx systems for Exmar's LPG carriers

Alfa Laval said its PureSOx systems will soon be installed by Hanjin Heavy Industries aboard two LPG carriers for Belgian owner Exmar.

Because these vessels are newbuilds, the installations place Alfa Laval’s planning, documentation and delivery capabilities in the spotlight.

Hanjin Heavy was contracted by Exmar for newbuild LPG carriers that will join Exmar’s existing LPG fleet of around 30 vessels. The new LPG carriers, each with a capacity of 38,000 m3, will be built at Hanjin’s Subic Shipyard in the Philippines and delivered to Exmar in Q1 and Q2 of 2016.

Two of these vessels will be equipped with Alfa Laval PureSOx scrubber systems for exhaust gas cleaning, which will be delivered to the Subic Shipyard in December 2014 and March 2015. The systems will be configured as hybrids, able to operate in an open loop with seawater or in a closed loop with circulation water. Each multiple-inlet system will serve a two-stroke Doosan MDT 6S59ME-B 9.3 main engine and three Doosan MAN 8L23/30H Mk2 auxiliary engines.
