Wärtsilä has been contracted to retrofit its Open Loop Scrubber systems on three additional vessels owned by Color Line, Norway's largest cruise and ferry operator. With the latest contract, Wärtsilä's now has 36 shipsets, totalling 75 scrubber units, either already installed or in the pipeline. Each vessel will be fitted with four systems designed to rid the ships' exhaust gases of harmful sulphur oxide (SOx) and particulate emissions. The Wärtsilä systems will enable the vessels to comply with current and anticipated environmental legislation, and to operate without restrictions in Emissions Control Areas (ECAs). The contract was signed in September 2013 and it follows a similar order placed in June 2013 to retrofit Color Line's SuperSpeed II ferry. The new contract covers the company's SuperSpeed I, Color Magic and Color Fantasy ships. SuperSpeed I sails between Norway and Denmark, while the other two vessels link Oslo, Norway with Kiel, Germany. In addition to the equipment delivery, Wärtsilä has also assumed responsibility for the basic and detailed engineering and for the installation supervision. "We see an increasing interest in our capability to supply turnkey installations," said Leonardo Sonzio, Director, Retrofit, Environmental Solutions, Wärtsilä Ship Power
