The global sulphur cap is coming – is your vessel ready?

The marine industry is rapidly approaching a turning point with the introduction in 2020 of the IMO’s global 0.5% sulphur cap, which will affect tens of thousands of marine vessels around the world. This new legislation means that you can now benefit from an even shorter payback time when installing an exhaust-gas cleaning system to help you comply with the new global limits.

Wärtsilä Services has a long track record of delivering scrubber-system retrofits for leading shipping operators around the world. We support you throughout the lifecycle of the project by providing world-class engineering capabilities, minimising risk, and keeping downtime and project management costs to a minimum.

As a professional project organisation, we are capable of managing retrofit projects of all kinds wherever you are in the world. Wärtsilä develops tailored retrofit solutions in close cooperation with the customer - from the very first enquiry until the system is successfully delivered and the project complete. After the project is completed, Wärtsilä’s global services network is there to support customers throughout the lifecycle of the ship.
