Ionada completes trials on MSC Jordan

Marine scrubber technology leader Ionada is pleased to announce the completion of it’s pilot testing project with MSC on the MV Jordan, a container vessel.  The successful trials demonstrated compliance to the 0.5% and 0.1 % sulfur IMO regulations.  The pilot trials consisted of the installation of an Ionada dry injection desulfurization system onto the main of the MV Jordan.    

“We would like to thank the crew of the MSC Jordan and the entire MSC technical team of MSC Shipmanagement Limited for supporting and contributing to the successful trials” said Ionada Managing Director,  Edoardo Panziera. “We look forward to continue working with MSC to implement dry desulfurization as a cost effective compliance solution for 2020 sulfur cap regulations” continued Edoardo Panziera.

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