ASRY added that it has secured over a dozen more retrofit projects for completion this year. The company said that lessons learned from its previous projects have enabled the yard to bolster its efficiency and ensure quick project turnaround. The scrubber retrofit project involved Greek-based vessel managers TMS Tankers, which has had several retrofit projects at the yard. Shipowners have been investing heavily in the installation of scrubbers on their ships as a way of meeting the IMO 2020 sulphur cap that entered into force on January 1, 2020. The Aframax tanker is 2007-built Monterey. Shipyards in Asia, predominantly account for the majority of scrubber retrofits. However, shipyards in Europe and the Middle East have proven their expertise in the field as well. Arab Shipbuilding and Repair Yard Company (ASRY) has completed a scrubber retrofit project in a record 29 days, the shipyard said. “This new record is one of the fastest turnarounds of the project in the region and it also involved a simultaneous BWTS retrofit on the Aframax vessel as well as silicone repairs, making the achievement even more noteworthy,” ASRY added.
