Project Description

Rectangular scrubber

The master of retrofit

The rectangular scrubber uses Open Loop wet scrubber technology. With its unique flexible design, it can be adjusted to suit existing space on retrofits as well as any newbuilding.

The overall system has been designed to minimize Power consumption, pressure drop and general maintenance requirement. The scrubber unit is designed with as few internal parts as possible to meet emission level limits to air and sea. It is simple and easy to operate with only seawater as the only scrubbing and neutralizing medium. All consumers can be connected (Main Engine, Auxiliary Engine & Boiler) through dedicated quenchers design to suit.

Designed to comply with IMO

The rectangular scrubber is designed to comply with IMO resolution MEPC 259 (68) Scheme B (continuous emissions monitoring and parameter checks). The SO2 reduction efficiency of our scrubbers corresponds to a reduction in fuel Sulphur content from 3,50% to 0,1% — exceeding the required level of compliance with the global cap of 0,5%.

High quality scrubber

The flexible size of the rectangular scrubber reduces installation costs as well as space allocation and is a high-quality scrubber is built to last the life of the ship.

The scrubber is produced in accordance with ISO standards, with high quality material sourced from leading European and US suppliers. Through its flexible design, EGCS units can be tailored to all vessel sizes with open and hybrid ready versions, suitable for newbuilding or retrofits.

Key features

Scrubber Configuration:

  • Cylindrical or Rectangular scrubber is chosen to meet exhaust flow rate, and flexibility in dimensioning for installation in constraint spaces, minimizing modification for retrofit project.


  • Scrubber body and quenchers are made of highest stainless steel grade SMO254, with increase strength, toughness and resistant to corrosion.

Efficient Scrubbing Process:

  • Special fire retardant packing bed material (FRPP) ensure efficient scrubbing process and reduce overall weight of the scrubber due to its light weight.

Low Operating Cost:

  • Design of scrubber process facilitates lower wash water flow rate, with reduce power consumption and minimize operating cost.
