Maersk successfully demonstrates Belco scrubber
Belco Technologies has partnered with the Maersk Group for a pilot installation of a Belco scrubber aboard the 8,112TEU containership, Maersk Tukang. The equipment was tested over six days in May as the ship sailed from Algeciras, Spain, to Genoa, Italy. Representatives from Belco and Maersk were onboard, along with a surveyor from the American Bureau of Shipping who was there to witness and monitor the full testing as the system awaits class certification, expected later this year. The scrubber was installed in 2013 in Qingdao, China, during a scheduled drydock. The unit is designed to clean SOx and particulates from exhaust gas emissions from a 3.2MW auxiliary engine. Open loop tests confirmed it achieved compliance with MARPOL Annex IV regulations for all air and washwater emission criteria. Closed loop testing is scheduled for early autumn.
