Alfa Laval has joined the Getting to Zero Coalition, a coordinated effort to fight climate change by introducing zero-emission vessels by the year 2030.
In June 2018, Greek dry bulk operator Safe Bulkers selected Alfa Laval to retrofit 20 of its vessels with Alfa Laval PureSOx scrubber systems for exhaust gas cleaning.
Bulk carriers can now benefit from an Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 bulker-fit configuration, which is specifically adapted to their flow needs.
Alfa Laval is not an engine maker but is nonetheless playing a key role in the move towards LNG propulsion. Alfa Laval technologies and expertise – especially in the area of boilers – are enabling marine vessels to deal with boil-off gas (BOG), which is the critical step in making the shift to LNG.
As Alfa Laval Aalborg boiler solutions celebrate 100 years in the marine industry, they are also leading the way in today’s era of change.
Alfa Laval PureSOx gives customers the option of scrubbing in a closed loop, either by choosing a fully equipped hybrid system or by installing a hybrid-ready system that can be upgraded for a closed-loop operation later.
USCG presented a type approval certificate for the largest PureBallast 3 reactor size: 1500 m3/h. Customers can now select any PureBallast 3 system configuration for use in United States waters.
Anders Lindmark, formerly Head of Alfa Laval PureBallast, has transitioned from ballast water treatment into another compliance application. As Business Unit President, Gas Systems, he now oversees the Alfa Laval PureSOx offering in exhaust gas cleaning.
Recently, Alfa Laval inaugurated the Alfa Laval PureSOx Training Centre in Shanghai, China. Focused on the training of commissioning engineers.
