Scrubbers Cleaning Up

Norway’s DNB Markets has published an in-depth report on scrubber uptake across the shipping industry and is forecasting the technology add-on to vessels is a good investment and should pay back in less than 18 months after the global sulphur cap kicks in on January 1, 2020. Scrubber uptake is accelerating towards 2,300 units by 2020 – covering 15% of pre-2020 heavy fuel oil (HFO) demand. Sector-wise DNB is predicting scrubber installations reaching 973 in dry bulk, 530 in tankers and 383 in containers by 2020 with larger ships more likely to have the exhaust gas cleaners installed.
