Hapag-Lloyd Testing Scrubbers & LNG as Fuel

Hapag Lloyd

Hapag-Lloyd said in its 1H2018 financial results that it is preparing two pilot projects as a way of getting ready for the IMO’s 2020 sulphur cap.

The shipping company is testing exhaust gas cleaning technology (scrubbers) on two large containerships and exploring the benefits of LNG as fuel.

As the two projects are still under development, Hapag-Lloyd added that it will not invest heavily in new ship systems until 2019.
