ANDRITZ and TeamTec sign cooperation agreement for worldwide marketing of the SeaSOx exhaust gas cleaning system for the maritime industry
ANDRITZ and TeamTec have signed a cooperation agreement for worldwide marketing of the SeaSOx exhaust gas cleaning system for the maritime industry. ANDRITZ will provide the core technology and basic design and will be responsible for the supply of key components and documentation. TeamTec will take over global responsibility for sales and marketing, including after-sales services for the SeaSOx system.
The SeaSOx technology by ANDRITZ can be installed on all types of ships, either on a new build or retrofit basis. SeaSOx uses seawater as washing medium and operates in an open loop as well as closed loop or in hybrid mode for optimum flexibility and economy. Depending on the ship’s operating profile, exhaust gas cleaning can secure enormous savings in fuel costs by complying with the new sulfur regulations and thus provide payback periods of between one and three years.
Additional advantages of SeaSOx are:
- Simple and robust design suitable for inline and bypass installation
- Substantial noise attrition in inline mode
- Safe dry running
- Highest removal efficiencies with lowest operating costs by combining ANDRITZ’s patented FGDplus technology and optimized spray bank design
- Rectangular cross-section to minimize footprint and space allocation
“The maritime exhaust gas cleaning sector is a fast-growing market. With our advanced SeaSOx technology, ANDRITZ is able to offer attractive, customized solutions that meet our customers’ needs. In TeamTec, we have found the ideal partner for marketing of our technologies,” explains Christian Mayer, head of the Air Pollution Control Product Group at ANDRITZ.
Olaf Evjen Olsen, CMO of TeamTec emphasizes: “ANDRITZ’s SeaSOx exhaust gas cleaning system is the ideal addition to our continuously extended maritime green product portfolio. We are very much looking forward to the cooperation with ANDRITZ, a globally leading company in air pollution control.”
