Decades-long expertise in marine
For over 40 years, Valmet has been intensively present aboard all types of ships where our solutions play an integral role. Our target is to make the vessels greener, more efficient and more profitable, thanks to the use of advanced automation and scrubber solutions.

Valmet has a long track record in supplying scrubber systems to container, general cargo and cruise ships. Also, ship automation systems based on Valmet technology have a long history. Development work on ship automation systems started in the early 80s with Damatic Classic and has continued through to today’s Valmet DNA.

Exhaust gas cleaning
With the increasing importance of sustainability, the International Maritime Organization and the EU are tightening the regulations for seagoing vessels. SOx scrubbing is an attractive way to meet these demands and minimize the operational costs of ships. Valmet has developed a scrubber technology with unique features to enable a more sustainable operating environment for the shipping industry. The solution is patented by Valmet.

The scrubber system should be selected primarily based on the operating profile of the vessel. The two basic types of exhaust gas scrubbers are an open loop scrubber that uses seawater as wash water or a closed loop scrubber that circulates the wash water and requires alkali to be added to the process to capture sulfur. The hybrid scrubber is a new generation solution that can easily switch between the open or closed loop operation modes.

Valmet has also delivered dual water hybrid scrubbers that combine the versatility and benefits of both modes by running them simultaneously in different stages. This is particularly more cost effective in brackish waters or when the vessel should be able to sail anywhere without over-dimensioning the scrubber system.
