Luxembourgish clean-tech company APATEQ announced that Scandlines uses its new scrub water treatment system, “MarinePaq” which cleans scrub water from the ferry’s closed-loop exhaust gas cleaner. The system has been installed in two containers stacked one on top of the other, at the harbour in Gedser, Denmark.

In a five-step process, the scrub water treatment system cleans the scrub water effectively, being substantially beneficial for the environment. The onshore treatment of the MarinePaq also achieves a much higher quality of purification than any other existing scrub water treatment system, such as the ones offered for on board applications.

Heavy metals, COD, nitrite, sulphites and nitrates are being reduced to much lower levels than any other solution currently implemented, according to the company.

APATEQ also informed that Scandlines’ two recently launched ferries for the Rostock-Gedser route are driven by Scandlines’ hybrid propulsion system, which corresponds to stringent environmental legislation. Together with other optimisation initiatives, the fuel consumption has been reduced to almost one-third per crossing per car compared to the former ferries operating the route.
