Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), has increased production capacity for its marine SOx scrubber system, and begun shipments of the DIA-SOx C Series tower and DIA-SOx R Series tower from partner fabricators in China and Taiwan, respectively.

The C Series tower is designed to be fitted on LPG carriers and large oil tankers, while the R Series tower (pictured) is for ultra-large container ships with capacity of 20,000 TEU and 14,000 TEU.

DIA-SOx is a brand launched by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding. The cylindrical C Series has been jointly developed with Mitsubishi Kakoki Kaisha, and the rectangular R Series with Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems. Both series utilise a multi-stream configuration that can treat exhaust gas from multiple engines simultaneously.

The fabricator in China has increased its capacity to be able to respond to the clients' requests for short delivery times and multiple slots. Mitsubishi Shipbuilding has received more than 50 orders to date for scrubber systems including both the C Series and R Series. For 18 of these orders, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is providing engineering services for installation of the scrubber.

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding reports a steady stream of inquiries from customers worldwide, responding to these demands with expanding production capacity including those two partner fabricators.

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is to continue providing marine SOx scrubber system, and to offer engineering services for scrubber installation for retrofitting and newbuilds, for ships built by MHI and by others in order to contribute to the further development of ocean transport, and reduce the environmental load that is increasing on a global scale.
