Safe Bulkers, the provider of marine drybulk transportation services, announced that the first scrubber was successfully installed and commissioned on MV Martine, a Japanese, Post-Panamax class vessel, built in 2009.

The US-listed operator of drybulk vessels for transporting bulk cargoes said that the scrubber is open loop, U-Type, Alfa Laval PureSOx and during commissioning has been tested in several loads complying comfortably with the stricter 0.1% sulfur fuel content limit applicable in Environmentally Controlled Areas (ECA).

The installation of scrubber was done concurrently with ballast water treatment system during the scheduled dry-docking of the vessel, as part of vessel's second special survey at Cosco Guangzhou shipyard.

Safe Bulkers has scheduled to install 18 additional Scrubbers within 2019 and 1 Scrubber in the first quarter of 2020.
