        在纳斯达克上市的散货船东鹰散航运(Eagle Bulk Shipping)已达成一系列协议,购入37台船舶废气清洗系统(脱硫设备scrubber)以加装在船队船舶上。
        鹰散航运CEO加里·沃格尔(Gary Vogel)评论道:“今天的通告给前期的工作与分析划上了圆满的句号。我们不仅达到了即将生效的限硫令的要求,还看到了脱硫设备可能带来的经济利益。我们为此感到高兴。另外,我们对公司活跃的船东—运营商模式十分自信,它能帮助我们有效优化脱硫投资、科技带来的收益。”
Eagle Bulk to Retrofit Up to 37 Ships with Scrubbers
Nasdaq-listed owner of bulk carriers Eagle Bulk Shipping has entered into a series of agreements for the purchase of up to 37 exhaust gas cleaning systems (scrubbers) which are to be retrofitted on vessels within its fleet.
The contracts include firm orders for 19 scrubbers and up to an additional 18 units. The projected cost, including installation, is approximately USD 2 million per scrubber system.
Eagle Bullk said that it intends to complete the retrofit of all 19 vessels prior to the January 1, 2020 implementation date of the new sulphur emission cap regulation.
The company said that it has developed a scrubber installation program with an unnamed engineering firm whereby a significant amount of the required retrofit work will be carried out on board the vessels while at sea and trading, thereby reducing off-hire time as compared with a typical shipyard installation.
“Today’s announcement is the culmination of significant work and analysis, and we are excited to be able to position ourselves to not only meet the forthcoming sulphur emission regulations, but also to realize the economic advantage we believe scrubbers will provide.  Additionally, we are confident that Eagle Bulk’s active owner-operator model will ensure that we can effectively maximize the returns on this investment and technology,” Gary Vogel, Eagle Bulk’s CEO, commented.
