Wärtsilä Oyj Abp: Wärtsilä awarded repeat order to supply exhaust gas cleaning systems for 3 Finnlines vessels

Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 28 August 2015 at 12:30 pm EET
Finnlines, a leading Ro-Ro and passenger vessel operator with services in the
North and Baltic Seas, has contracted Wärtsilä to supply three of its vessels
with exhaust cleaning scrubber systems. Finnlines is part of the Grimaldi
Group. This is a repeat order as in 2014 Finnlines placed a similar contract
to have six of its ships fitted with Wärtsilä's exhaust gas cleaning systems.
This latest contract is booked in the third quarter. The equipment is
scheduled for delivery in early 2016.
"We are very pleased to call on Wärtsilä again to provide us with the latest
emissions abatement technology and know-how. This is an important step
towards having our entire Baltic fleet scrubber equipped and in fully
operational service," says Tapani Voionmaa, Group General Counsel, Finnlines
Plc.
"Repeat orders are always very satisfying as they represent confirmation that
the performance of the systems delivered earlier fully meets the owners'
needs and expectations. Wärtsilä is the market leader in scrubber systems for
marine applications. We have a very strong track record in enabling ship
owners and operators to comply with all SOx emission regulations," says Juha
Kytölä, Vice President, Environmental Solutions, Wärtsilä.
The system selected for the three vessels is Wärtsilä's Hybrid in-line
scrubber system. This system configuration provides the flexibility to
operate in both open and closed loop modes. Furthermore, the compact in-line
version provides an efficient space and weight saving solution.

The International Maritime Organization's (IMO) stringent sulphur oxide
emissions regulations came into effect from the beginning of 2015. The
Wärtsilä systems successfully clean the exhaust, thereby enabling the ships
to continue operating on heavy fuel oil. The Wärtsilä scrubber systems also
comply with the water discharge criteria set by regulators.
