  Transporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) by sea is always a question of safety.


  SAACKE GCUs ensure safe transportation by fully burning of excess boil-off gas even at 100% free-flow.


  High excess air (250%) provides low flame temperature for low heat radiation and low NOx emissions.





The SAACKE Multistream Exhaust Gas Cleaning System (EGCS) / scrubber guarantees the continued use of heavy fuel oil, while reliably complying with the required emissions values (reducing Sulphur from 3.5% down to 0.1%). Its short amortization period makes it attractive for new-builds and retrofits alike. Our scrubber system was officially certified by DNV-GL and has been successfully tested in practice.


The Scrubber is U-type multi-stream and can accept a combination of exhaust gases from M/E, A/Es and Boilers in a single tower, depending on the requirements of each vessel. The system is available in Open-Loop, Hybrid and Closed-Loop mode.


The internally developed EGCS monitor enables the live monitoring of all relevant system data onshore, which offers significant savings potentials for the operator. Overall, the efficient and practical engineering reflects SAACKE’s decades of experience in the field of maritime applications.
