Yara Marine Technologies is pleased to announce it has been awarded a contract for the supply of hybrid scrubber systems (open and closed loop) for Saga Cruises’ latest newbuilding with an option for a second vessel. The vessel is already under construction at Meyer Werft in Germany.

With a combined engine power of 21.6MW, the vessel’s four MAN engines will each be connected to a Yara Marine Technologies’ SOx scrubber to effectively clean the exhaust gas emission down to the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) current and future emission requirements.

"We are proud to announce the contract with Saga and we look forward to seeing this impressive cruise vessel in operation", says CEO of Yara Marine Technologies, Mr Peter Strandberg.

"The decision to install scrubber systems on the vessel demonstrates Saga’s commitment to environmental regulations and reaffirms Yara Marine Technologies’ strong position in the exhaust gas cleaning market ", Mr. Strandberg concludes. The vessel is expected delivered in 2019.
