Emissions from vessels that involve Sulphur compounds is regulated by MARPOL Annex VI. As per the rule, IMO has regulated the maximum allowable Sulphur content in marine fuels. Using low Sulphur content fuel is one option to comply with then requirements of MARPOL Annex VI. Another alternative, which emerged as an economical option is to fix an exhaust gas scrubber. This allows the ship owner to use higher Sulphur content fuels, with the scrubber filtering out the rest of the Sulphur oxides (SOX) thereby the emissions to atmosphere are kept within the limits allowed by IMO.

Aries, with its strong engineering background on successfully executing similar jobs, helps the ship owner in the following.

  • Feasibility analysis to determine the right scrubber unit.
  • 3D Scanning and space modelling to position the scrubber unit within constrained spaces
  • Detailed engineering and pipe routing drawings to facilitate maximum pre-fabrication works
  • Develop Bill of materials for the modification
  • Installation supervision at site
