Scorpio Orders Fresh Batch of Scrubbers for $33.3m


Scorpio Group has confirmed that it has ordered a further 14 ENVI-Marine™ emission control systems for its vessels to manage 2020, at a combined cost of USD $20.3 m and scrubber units for $33.3 m from Pacific Green Technologies, reports Seatrade Maritime News.

Steps to comply with IMO 2020

Until the latter half of 2018 Scorpio was openly against installing scrubbers to meet the requirements of IMO 2020. After a major decision, in October 2018 announced it would fit exhaust gas cleaning systems to all 146 vessels in its listed bulker and tanker fleets.

Scorpio Group has added a further 23 scrubber units for $33.3 m from Pacific Green Technologies to be installed on its bulker and tanker fleets.

As Scorpio continues to equip its vessels with scrubbers to meet the requirements of the IMO 2020 sulphur cap Scorpio Tankers:

  • Has ordered a further 14 ENVI-Marine systems from Pacific Green for $20.3 m. 
  • The new order brings the total number of scrubbers contracted by Scorpio Tankers from Pacific Green to 66.

Meanwhile Scorpio Bulkers has added a further nine scrubber systems from Pacific Green for $13 m bringing its total number of exhaust gas cleaning systems ordered from the manufacturer to 37.

All the new systems ordered for both Scorpio Bulkers and Scorpio Tankers are described as being hybrid ready.

Scrubber order book in excess of $200 m

Pacific Green Technologies executive director Scott Poulter commented that they are one of the few marine scrubbing companies with the scale to fulfil major orders. 

They now have an order book in excess of $200 m and the technical know-how, the people and the facilities to manufacture our Systems on a large scale.
