In 2020, EDR Antwerp Shipyard installed various types of scrubber installations. Due to the volatile spread between fuel types, Owners and Ship Managers require flexibility from their shipyard partners. The installation window and timing can vary. In these fluctuating times, we remain available throughout to review the 3D design and prepare and pre-install the systems with our Riding Crew on board when the vessel is in navigation. Once arrived at our yard in Antwerp, the project time is minimal.
This flexibility is mainly generated by our Technical Workshop, manufacturing all pipes (including GRE and GRP types) and adjusting pre-ordered part of the systems where needed. A dedicated part of our team has been trained to modify and repair GRE/GRP pipes.
For this specific project, the Steel Department of EDR Antwerp Shipyard also designed and made the additional outside platforms behind the castle of the vessel.
These vessels now meet the MEPC and MARPOL ANNEX VI requirements.
