Two Norwegian Cruise Line ships have been retrofitted with a new Exhaust Gas Cleaning system to reduce the impact on the environment.

NCL has announced Norwegian Sun and Norwegian Jade have completed retrofitting a new Exhaust Gas Cleaning system to be more environmentally friendly. The new scrubber technology is part of a program to make Norwegian Cruise Line ships reduce their air emissions. The installations usually take place during the cruise and the ships don;t need to undergo a dry dock. In most cases, the work can be done in port.

Five scrubbers were installed on each ship and the new technology will reduce the equivalent of approximately 3,000 tons of Sulfur Oxide, SOx, gas in the coming years. Instead of seeing darker steam released into the sky the scrubbers work at scrubbing away the bad elements.

Norwegian now has eight ships outfitted with Gas Scrubbers technology, with Norwegian Jade and Norwegian Sun joining Norwegian Pearl, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Joy and Pride of America and the line’s newest ship sailing in June 2018, Norwegian Bliss.
