Specifically, the orders include 14 systems for Scorpio Tankers and 9 systems for Scorpio Bulkers, on top of 52 systems and 28 systems already ordered by the two Scorpio subsidiaries respectively.
Scott Poulter, executive director of Pacific Green Technologies stated
This is a further vote of confidence in Pacific Green’s Technologies and our ability to build and marine scrubbers on time and on budget. Scorpio Tankers has invested in the latest generation of fuel-efficient vessels and the hybrid-ready ENVI-Marine™ system will give the company the return-on-investment and flexibility it needs to face the complexities of IMO 2020.
Despite the current efforts of the company to install scrubbers to the majority of its fleet, in the first half of 2018, Scorpio was against the scrubbers, in the first place.
