Ecospray signs a new agreement with Zept to join the Chinese market

Ecospray has signed an agreement with a Greek shipowner to equip five new vessels built in a Chinese shipyard with Open Loop EGCS. In order to compete with local manufacturers, Ecospray will partner with the well-known Chinese company Jiangsu Zhenhua Environmental Protection Technology Co., Ltd (Zept). Ecospray will design the system and supply sensitive components, while Zept will manufacture and source locally the remaining items to complete the scope of supply.

After equipping the major part of the fleet with Ecospray’s EGCSs and conducting several joint R&D projects, this is the continuation of a long-term collaboration with one of the leading dry bulk shipping companies with the aim to reduce emissions from his fleet. This collaboration will ensure high quality scrubbers at competitive prices for the Far East market and will strengthen Ecospray’s position in Asia.
In addition, investing in EGCS solutions remains crucial as a first step to meeting the great challenge of 2050: scrubbers are a prerequisite and a fundamental starting point for ships that want to embrace new technologies such as onboard carbon capture.
