More shipowners join CSA 2020 in support of scrubbers

A number of companies have recently joined The Clean Shipping Alliance
2020 (CSA 2020), increasing the organisation’s membership to 35 shipowners
operating a combined fleet of almost 2,500 vessels.

Norwegian/Swedish shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen is the
latest shipowner to join the alliance. Other companies that have recently
joined include Hammonia Reederei, International Seaways, Chandris (Hellas) and
Genco Shipping & Trading.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen operates a fleet of about 130 vessels, of which 23
will feature scrubbers by the end of 2021.
Genco Shipping & Trading plans to install scrubbers on 17 Capesize
vessels with retrofit options for an additional 15 smaller bulk carriers. The
decision follows extensive evaluation and analysis of the environmental impact
of the technology.
“With the addition of these new members to CSA 2020, we can now gather
further data on which shipowners, regulators and port authorities can make more
informed decisions on how best to comply with the global sulphur cap,” 
Adams, Executive Director, CSA 2020, said.
Other than the 35 CSA 2020 members that have already adopted exhaust gas
cleaning as an environmentally responsible means of meeting the global sulphur
cap, the alliance has identified a further 242 ship owning/operating companies
with investments in EGCS technology.
