Ionada completes trials on MV Maersk Nimes

Marine scrubber technology leader Ionada is pleased to announce the completion of it’s pilot testing project on the MV Maersk Nimes, a container ship.  The successful trials demonstrated compliance to the 0.5% sulfur IMO regulations.  The pilot trials consisted of the installation of Ionada’s dry injection desulfurization system onto the main engine of the Maersk Nimes.

“We would like to thank the crew of the MV Maersk Nimes as well as the shipowner CMB for their support and assistance contributing to the successful trials” said Ionada Managing Director,  Edoardo Panziera. “We look forward to working with CMB to review the opportunity to install the permanent system onboard their vessels” 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 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
