Satisfied in SOx compliance

Alfa Laval PureSOx has been providing reliable compliance with SOx emission limits at sea since 2009. Around 100 PureSOx systems have been installed to date and every one of them is still in compliant operation . Many of our satisfied PureSOx customers have returned to us for additional PureSOx systems.

Customer case – PureSOx and life on board

Dutch ship owner Spliethoff was among the first to install PureSOx. The company currently has 18 PureSOx systems, plus considerable insight when it comes to working with them. “The reliability has been very high,” says Technical Support Engineer Roland Hoogeveen.
