Alfa Laval PureNOx Prime ordered for five VLECs

MAN Diesel and Turbo has order a series of PureNOx Prime be part of the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems on five very large ethane carriers (VLECs).

The PureNOx Prime is Alfa Laval’s new PureNOx solution for water treatment in EGR, which has just been introduced to the market.

The five new VLECs will be operated by United Ethane Carriers (UEC) – a joint venture between Jaccar Holdings and Hartmann Group for the commercial management of ethane carriers. The vessels will be built in China by Dalian Shipyard.

Each vessel will be served by a PureNOx Prime 100 system, which is the smallest of the three PureNOx Prime capacities and comprises one centrifugal separator.

PureNOx Prime will be integrated into the vessels’ EGR engines, which will be manufactured for MAN Diesel and Turbo by Hyundai Heavy Industries Engine and Machinery Division (HHI-EMD).
