Ionada BV has announced the signing of a Pilot Agreement with Van Oord to conduct trials of Ionada’s Semi-Dry Scrubbing technology onboard the hopper dredger Lelystad.

The Pilot trials will consist of retrofitting one of the Lelystad’s two main engines with Ionada’s Semi-Dry scrubbing system. The Pilot commissioning and sea trials are scheduled to be completed by fourth quarter of 2018.

We look forward to completing the commissioning of the Semi-Dry Scrubber later this year. This installation represents the world’s first marine SOx scrubber using Semi-Dry nanotechnology absorbents,” said Ionada President, Edoardo Panziera.

According to Ionada, with the introduction of Ionada’s Semi Dry Scrubbers, shipowners can achieve the benefits of 50 % fuel cost savings while complying to the IMO 2020 0.5 % sulfur emissions regulations.

The company’s Semi-Dry Scrubbers has numerous advantages over traditional seawater scrubbers including no structural renovations, no sea water or washwater.

Ionada is now offering shipowners an Exhaust Gas Cleaning (EGC) Service where shipowners only pay for the fuel cleaned. The EGC Service saves millions in capital costs, and completely de-risks scrubber purchases for the shipowners.
