Langh Tech has successfully delivered a scrubber system to the Chios Navigation 50.000 dwt Medium Range product Tanker, a newbuilding from Hyundai Mipo Shipyard.
Chios Navigation has been one of the first Greek ship owners who have selected during early 2018 Langh Tech Open Loop-Hybrid ready scrubbers for their Newbuilding project in Hyundai Mipo. The system consists of a U-type multi-inlet 5 flue gas sources Open Loop hybrid ready configuration to serve a Main Engine of 7180 kW MCR power, three auxiliary generating sets and the Auxiliary Boiler, consuming totally only about 130 kW in design operating load.
At the end of April 2019, M/T DORIC COURAGE was delivered successfully from the Shipyard with sea trials confirming the high performance of the Scrubber system and its simplicity.
‘’We were looking for a Scrubber system for our Newbuilding project that would be technically simple and sound, but with qualitative elements. We favoured a provider being fully acceptable by HMD Shipyard, demonstrating efficient project management skills and offering strong after sales support. Langh Tech, as ship owners themselves, demonstrated and proved their understanding of our targets and we eventually received a high-performance system with minimal issues during construction, commissioning and delivery. We believe that we have invested in an efficient hybrid-ready solution with low operating costs’’, says Mr. Nicholas Kydoniefs, Technical Director of Chios Navigation.
‘’It is our honour to serve Chios Navigation in Greece and we are very excited to work on our first Hyundai Mipo MR Tanker project. Our system was fully fit to the Scrubber design specification and space configuration of the Shipyard while due to low operating costs it will offer a significantly fast pay-back to the shipowner. We have further committed to provide a strong technical support during the whole operational lifetime of the system”, says Laura Langh-Lagerlöf, Commercial Director of Langh Tech.
Chios Navigation is a traditional, long-established family owned ship owning company located in Greece, owning 9 bulk carrier and 3 medium range product tanker vessels, nearly all of which have been constructed after 2010.
Langh Tech designs and produces scrubbers for SOx removal from exhaust gases and water treatment units for closed loop scrubbers. Langh Tech is one of the Langh companies, which also include ship owning Langh Ship, steel carriage and bulk containers from Langh Cargo Solutions and Industrial and Ship Cleaning Services Hans Langh.
