Scrubber retrofits

Vessels retrofitted with SOx scrubbers will typically experience increased exhaust gas back pressure which can affect the engine performance due to:

  • Reduced scavenging pressure
  • Increased exhaust gas temperature
  • Increased fuel oil consumption

Following the engine builders guidelines the back pressure increase might be above the limit.

See the ABB Solution

Turbocharging upgrades

In cooperation with the engine designers, modification of the turbocharger ensures:

  • Scavenging pressure up to the level before the scrubber retrofit
  • Optimal fuel oil consumption
  • NOx emission level stays unchanged

To ensure the best possible efficiency, a turbocharger overhaul is generally recommended prior to commissioning the scrubber.

Low-sulfur fuel oil

OPEX for ship operators increases due to the higher cost of low-sulfur fuel.

ABB can provide turbocharging performance upgrades for fuel savings and lower emissions.
