Priority Issue: For the Future of Our Customers

Jan Espersen, First Engineer on the Petunia Seaways (left), and Per Lunde, engineer at MAN Diesel & Turbo, tested the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system on the high seas. This exhaust gas treatment technology, which has been adapted to suit the ship’s engine, cuts nitrogen oxide emissions by 80%.

The cargo ferry belonging to DFDS Seaways is loaded with semitrailers in Gothenburg harbor; it travels back and forth to England on a daily basis.

Thanks to its SCR system, the Petunia Seaways complies with the emission standards of the International Maritime Organization, which will apply from 2016.

During the test phase, Per Lunde monitors the performance of the SCR system, which was retrofitted to the ferry.
