Unique Shipping Group’s Oriental Jubilee Gets “SCRUBBER READY” Notation!


The Unique Shipping Group christened its new DNV GL-classed vessel Oriental Jubilee in Ulsan, Korea recently.  It is the first vessel to receive the DNV GL SCRUBBER READY notation.



Ship Name Oriental Jubilee
Ship Type LPG Carrier
Built at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in Ulsan
Class DNV GL

“Oriental Jubilee”, a Unique Shipping Group’s ship is the world’s first ship to receive a SCRUBBER READY Class notation.

We have witnessed ships being awarded with notation ‘LNG READY’ – MV “Sajir” the first ever “LNG Ready” mega boxship which belongs to UASC.  The vessel, the first in a series of 17 DNV GL classed large containerships incorporates innovations in ship design, propulsion technology, energy management and container stowage.

‘LNG ready’ and ‘Gas Ready’ class notation – means that the ships are prepared from the design stages for easy retrofitting to LNG fuelled operation.

Now – ‘Oriental Jubilee’ becomes the world’s first “Scrubber Ready” ship – meaning – this notation takes into account all the relevant factors for the installation of scrubbers, ranging from space and stability requirements, to fire safety, piping, corrosion resistance, and the effect on the main engine.

Oriental Jubilee and its sister vessel, which is scheduled for delivery in September 2017, have been prepared for the installation of a hybrid scrubber system based on an existing design and technology.  The unit can also be connected with multiple exhaust gas inlets from the ships’ main engine, three diesel engines and the boiler.
