The Business Case of Scrubbers

  • Bureau Veritas 149 Vesterbrogade København, 1800 Denmark (map)

Scrubber – or exhaust gas cleaning system - is one of the solutions to cope with the present SECA rules and upcoming Global Sulfur Cap 2020 regulation. However, as scrubber is a relatively new solution in the maritime industry the costs can be unpredictable, and due to oil prices volatility the total cost might fluctuate significantly.

There is no one defined price for a scrubber; everything depends on size, age and other conditions, so the capital investment may vary from $3 mln up to even $12 mln per vessel. Altogether, the investment might turn out to be quite costly at the beginning. But how about the payback time and ROI? When does it pay off for a shipowner to invest in a scrubber? What is the business case and what are the possible methods of financing the equipment?

This workshop will touch upon the topic from the economic angle, where 5 speakers will present business cases of different ways of investing in scrubbers. It will address socio-economic, financial and environmental effects of SECA and 2020 Global Sulfur Limit regulation and will explore the needs of the maritime industry when making clean shipping investments. We round the event off with a panel debate where supporters and opponents of scrubbers will have a chance to present their arguments and move the dialog forward. Join us for a discussion on the effects of co mpliance with the new regulations.
