Guide provides owners and operators with technical information they need to find cost-effective solutions
The technical teams at Lloydâs Register worked closely with industry and used project experience to develop the guidance. Exhaust gas treatment systems (EGTS), or scrubbers as they are known, are one of a number of options available to meet ever stricter emissions regulations.
EGTS will not be suitable for all ship types or operators, and the age of assets also will be a factor in making commercial decisions.
âFor us, itâs not a question of being for or against these treatment systems. Itâs all about building understanding of how scrubbers work, when they may be suitable, and providing operators with the information and confidence they need to make investment decisions.â
With new technologies emerging, providing the right support throughout the decision-making and design process is critical, says Palmer, who adds that the guide provides a clear picture of the technical realities involved in installing and operating EGTS, using case studies and real-world examples.
