Royal Wagenborg has ordered Wärtsilä scrubber systems to clean the exhaust emissions from two of its RORO carriers, the ‘Balticborg’ and ‘Bothniaborg’. These will be Wärtsilä’s first deliveries of its scrubber systems to Royal Wagenborg.
By installing Wärtsilä scrubber systems, the vessels will comply with the regulations covering emissions of sulphur oxides (SOx) while using conventional residual marine fuel (HFO). The Balticborg and Bothniaborg are employed on a long term freight contract with Smurfit Kappa for the weekly shipment of paper products between Haraholmen, Bremen, Sheerness and Terneuzen. These operating routes are located in the Baltic and North Seas’ Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA).
The retrofitting of of first vessel will take place in the upcoming week at the shipyard Royal Niestern Sander, since the m.v. Bothniaborg arrived last weekend.
