New Innovative EGCS from Value Maritime for Noordwijk Ocean Services

On September 19, Noordwijk Ocean Services has signed a contract to outfit their freighter Bandura with the new innovative scrubber from Value Maritime. Installation will take place on February 2020.

The Bandura is a Damen Combi Freighter with 8000 deadweight and a 3.0MW engine.

2 Value maritime maarten chrisi with scrubber 1Noordwijk Ocean services BV is operating mv Bandura since December 2010. The main company’s shipping route is Continent /USA. Since the very beginning Noordwijk Ocean Services provides quality service with utmost efficiency. The company operates to the highest industry standards where environmental conscientiousness are not just procedural requirements, but a company culture.

Anna Bandura – Managing Director at Noordwijk Ocean Services said:

“The Value Maritime scrubber is based on an innovative technology that not only allows to comply with the global 0.5% Sulphur Cap but is also able to reduce SOx emissions down to 0.1%, This allows our vessels to comply also in the Emission Control Areas. They also reduce PM and PAH emissions compared to burning compliant fuel. Sox, PAH, and PM are dangerous to human health. In addition, this EGCS allows our vessels to continue to burn HFO which is expected to be more economical compared to compliant fuels, thus helping us better manage financial risks and protect the company’s sustainability ”

3 ValueMaritimeValue Maritime has reinvented scrubbing and will deliver a hybrid ready Scrubber system.

They have developed a small prefabricated, pre-installed, “plug and play” EGCS in a 20ft transportable casing, that filters Sulphur and ultrafine particulate matter (PM 2.5) from a vessel’s exhaust gasses. The system assures compliance with the IMO 0.1% Sulphur cap (SECA).

The EGCS comes in three sizes suitable for vessels with different engine size. These include: 3.0MW (0.1%), 6.0MW (0.1%) and 9.0MW (0.1%). Read more about Value Maritime’s new scrubbing technique.
