Triton Emission Solutions Inc. announced the signing of an installation agreement with Prestige Cruise Holdings, Inc.
According to a press release, the agreement will initially focus on a two vessel installation and certification of the company’s newly developed DSOX-15 Fuel Purification System.
It will also allow for DSOX-15 Fuel Purification System installations on up to seven additional vessels.
The company claimed the DSOX-15 system has a “revolutionary approach” to sulphur removal that is expected to comply with new emission regulations, set to take effect in January 2015.
Triton Emission Solutions Inc. CEO, Rasmus Norling, commented: “This second installation agreement is further evidence of the market demand for the DSOX-15 Fuel Purification System.”
He added: “This agreement represents a second segment of the maritime industry, the cruise line industry, where Triton Emission Solutions Inc. intends to demonstrate the DSOX-15 Fuel Purification System’s economical emissions compliance capabilities in a real time operational maritime environment.”
The company confirmed that it intends to update the public on all the installations and certification milestones of the DSOX-15 Fuel Purification System as it progresses through the development process to compliance certification.
Last week, the company announced that it is exploring the feasibility of installing its DSOX-15 pre-combustion fuel desulphurisation system at shore-side facilities.
Earlier this month, it completed a three-ship installation survey for its fuel purification system.
The survey was conducted in the Baltic Sea. In July, an unnamed cruise shipoperating in the area had expressed interest in the firm’s newly launched scrubber system, with a request for an installation survey to be conducted on the product.
