DNV GL: We haven’t seen any serious incidents involving scrubbers

Exhaust gas cleaning systems, better known as scrubbers, have been under the spotlight in the shipping industry for a few years now, as owners debated the pros and cons of their installation.

One of the most compelling drivers behind the installation of the technology as a means of cutting sulphur emissions was a quick return on investment as well as premium earnings when compared to ships running on much more expensive compliant fuels.
