Ionada completes trials on MV Yeoman Bridge

Marine scrubber technology leader Ionada is pleased to announce the completion of it’s pilot testing project with Bontrup on the MV Yeoman Bridge, a Self Discharging Bulk Carrier.  The successful trials demonstrated compliance to the 0.5% and 0.1 % sulfur IMO regulations.  The pilot trials consisted of the installation of Ionada’s dry injection desulfurization system onto the main engine of the Yeoman Bridge.    

“We would like to thank the SMT crew of the MV Yeoman Bridge as well as the shipowner Bontrup for their support and assistance contributing to the successful trials” said Ionada Managing Director,  Edoardo Panziera. “We look forward to installing the permanent system onboard the vessel, scheduled for the next dry dock in early 2020” continued Edoardo Panziera.

With the introduction of Ionada’s Dry Desulfurization, shipowners can achieve the benefits of up to half the fuel costs 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
