Clean Marine was selected by Hyundai Heavy Industries to supply exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) for a Very Large Gas Carrier (VLGC) being built for Dorian LPG Ltd. Clean Marine has developed an EGCS based on the Advanced Vortex Chamber technology that provides unique particulate matter trapping efficiency. The system’s integrated fan and gas recirculation technology also allows the one EGCS unit to simultaneously serve several combustion units. The system supplied to Dorian LPG is a hybrid system that allows the vessel to operate seamlessly in all types of water (including low alkaline and saline water) without loss of efficiency.

GEA Heat Exchangers presented its latest developments at SMM 2014, including reduced NOx emissions from GEA exhaust gas recirculation coolers now for two-stroke engines, and GEA Bloksma oil coolers in various versions and sizes. In addition to its exhaust gas recirculation coolers (EGR) for four-stroke
the new engine was the right one can be seen by the immediate received orders and it confirmed the growing demand to have the option to run ships on Natural Gas as well as HFO in the face of increased fuel prices.
