Scandlines uses a brand new scrub water treatment system, produced by the Luxembourgish clean-tech company APATEQ. The treatment system MarinePaq cleans scrub water from the ferry’s closed-loop exhaust gas cleaner (scrubber). It produces an effluent according to the most stringent environmental legislation and achieves substantial savings on operation costs and flexibility gains for the fleet.
Award winning clean-tech innovator APATEQ of Luxembourg is now introducing a new, very compact version of its scrub water treatment system for use on-board larger vessels. The effluent of excess water produced in a closed loop scrubber is treated in order to comply with IMO (International Maritime Organization) regulations for direct discharge to the sea.
