Frontline has ordered exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) for a further 12 vessels. The latest scrubber deal, which was agreed with Feen Marine Scrubbers (FMSI), follows the company’s previously announced commitment to order six scrubbers with additional fixed price options from FMSI in June 2018.
“We have taken significant steps to modernize our fleet, decreasing the average age of our owned vessels to 4.7 years. Following the committed installations, over 40% of our owned fleet will be equipped with scrubbers. Notably, the majority of these installations will be performed prior to 2020, when new sulphur emissions compliance requirements go into effect,” Robert Hvide Macleod, CEO of Frontline Management, said.
“Further installations will be considered, and we are uniquely positioned to access scrubber capacity from Feen Marine.”
