Ocean Engineering Delivers Third Scrubber To World Direct Shipping


  • World Direct Shipping has signed a deal with CR Ocean Engineering to supply a scrubber system to a third of its vessels.
  • Ocean Engineering will fit a scrubber to the container ship Queen B III, the company said in an emailed statement on Tuesday.
  • The firm had previously supplied scrubbers to the Queen B and Queen B II.

A recent news article published in the Ship and Bunker states that World Direct Shipping Takes Third Scrubber From Ocean Engineering.

Fuel pricing differential favours using scrubbers

“Although present fuel pricing differential favours using scrubbers, the primary reason for this selection is the comfort in using HFO as a known and reliable fuel,” the company said in the statement.

“This move allows WORLD DIRECT SHIPPING to continue using HFO while meeting the strict IMO/MARPOL regulations and safeguarding the environment.

“This CROE MULTISTREAM scrubber will remove about 5 Tons per day of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) emissions from the combined exhaust from the main engine plus 3 auxiliary engines.”
