Sponsored by the Norwegian Research CouncelTesting starts this summer
13More scrubbers in our fleet? Retrofits can be complex and expensive Suitable for newbuilds A competetive advantage Engineering capacity a limitation (?) Technical and financial risks manageable Political risk an issue (?)
14But, most important of all;….. a highly motivated crew!
