Partnership aims to ensure global, 24/7 maritime service and sustainability
Damen Shiprepair Harbour & Voyage (DSHV) has signed a joint partnership cooperation with Verolme Special Equipment for the provision of services to exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS), widely known as Marine Scrubbers. The agreement arose from a mutual understanding that both parties’ clients were seeking wider availability of services for on board scrubber installations – either in port or underway. The partnership will create a leading global service provider of EGCS, supporting cleaner, emissions-reduced shipping worldwide and available 24/7.
More and more vessels are having scrubbers installed as one of the options to comply with IMO 2020 Sulphur Cap. However, this increase in scrubber installations represents a potential increase in maintenance, service, modifications and repairs, as Jozeph W.D. Quak (Managing Director of Damen Shiprepair Harbour & Voyage) explains.
