Latest ANDRITZ SeaSOx news and projects

Due to the lower sulfur limits that will enter into force for shipping worldwide in 2020, more and more shipping companies are equipping their ships with exhaust gas scrubbers.

ANDRITZ has adapted its power plant-proven exhaust gas purification technology for the maritime sector and is now naming it ANDRITZ SeaSOx.

MED-G CERTIFICATION - Important milestone reached

With the MED-G certification from the DNVGL classification society, ANDRITZ has received its first confirmation of safety and environmental compliance for a scrubber installed on a maritime vessel. This certification is necessary in order to obtain a permit to continue operating the ship with high-sulfur fuel and using an SO2 removal unit. In this special case, it is also a world premiere because the MV Piana uses the innovative SeaSOxdry technology. No other ship globally has an installation using this kind of technology. SeaSOxdry not only removes SO2, but

also particulates, there is no plume produced at the stack outlet. In addition, no water is discharged. Hence, this certification marks an important milestone in bringing this promising technology forward and also gaining acceptance for it from other clients. The dry SO2 removal solution is a very attractive technology, especially for ferries operating in European waters.

The agreement was signed in July 2018 to install a SeaSOxwet system having a square footprint with very low space requirements of 2.8 m side length for one main engine with 18.66 MW. The system was designed for removal of SO2 from 3.5 to 0.5%S and will be installed in September 2019.
