Number of scrubber-equipped vessels to grow despite drop in fittings last year

Despite a significant drop in the number of installations, the share of scrubber-fitted vessels is expected to increase in the coming years.

BIMCO reported 399 onboard installations last year, a 24% decrease year on year, with scrubbers now installed on 13% of bulkers, tankers, and containerships. This percentage is set to rise, as 17% of ships currently on the yard’s books are expected to have scrubbers installed.
