Alfa Laval’s PureSOx Express is an open-loop PureSOx system, delivered as a fully enclosed module and adapted for a simple and cost-efficient fit on smaller vessels, allowing them to continue using HFO and comply with SOx regulations. It reduces the investment cost, engineering time and physical work of installing a SOx scrubber, but still uses the PureSOx technology already in use on hundreds of vessels. Steven Pieters, sales director, Exhaust Gas Cleaning, said: “It can be lifted on board and connected without a specialised scrubber team, which means less work at the shipyard and an installation time of just 10–14 days.”   Prefabricated and preconfigured, PureSOx Express is designed for up to 75 tonnes of exhaust gas per hour and engine power up to 10 MW, making it a one-size-fits-all solution for many vessels of 40,000–65,000 DWT.   As an open-loop system, PureSOx Express complies with current regulations. However, the scrubber is also hybrid-ready, with connections present for a later conversion to a hybrid system, making the module future-proof and cost-efficient.
