Wärtsilä supplied four exhaust gas cleaning systems to retrofit the Ro-pax ferry SuperSpeed 2 for the Norwegian cruise and ferry operator, Color Line.
The installation is expected to be carried out during docking of the vessel in spring 2014. The four separate Wärtsilä open loop scrubber systems ensure the ship’s full compliance with the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) MARPOL Annex VI regulations, and with EU Directive 2055/33/EC. By significantly reducing the emissions of sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulates from the engines’ exhaust, the SuperSpeed 2 is able to operate without restrictions in designated Emission Control Areas (ECAs).
