GLASGOW's Cleanship Solutions has signed a deal to retrofit scrubbers in 30 ships between 7,500 and 15,000 TEU in capacity.
The retrofit work will be completed by the second quarter of this year, reported Colchester's Seatrade Maritime News.
Said Cleanship managing director Chris McMenemy: 'We are excited to be working closely with this operator in their scrubber retrofit programme through 2019.'
The work covers all aspects of the scrubber retrofit engineering phase including 3D scanning and class design and production design. The 3D scanning has mostly been completed.
The order for Cleanship Solutions come as the shipping industry heads to the IMO 2020 rule requiring ships to burn fuel with a maximum sulphur content of 0.5 per cent.
