Return on investment

A key issue for shipowners is the return on their investment (ROI) in new technology. Our futureproof CleanSOx EGCS-models offers market competitive ROI for shipowners.

The investment cost for the EGCS unit ranges between $500 000 – $2,5 million, depending on vessel type. Installation costs of approximately $1 million must be expected, depending on yard. Estimated operating cost for the scrubber is $20-$50 per metric ton fuel consumed by the scrubber, depending on caustic soda (NaOH) and fuel price, fuel Sulphur level and scrubber operating mode.

Example below is based on a vessel burning aprox. 10,000 tons annual fuel consumption.

approximate payback time

* The spread between compliant fuel and HSFO is assumed to be USD 250 per tonne fuel. Estimated cost is $20-50 per tonne fuel consumed by scrubber combustion units. Fuel cost is depending on caustic soda and fuel price, fuel Sulphur level and scrubber operating mode. In this example we have used a fuel cost of $40 per tonne fuel.
