The world’s 14th largest container line Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) recently launched two 11,000 TEU containerships both replete with scrubber systems.

HMM held a ceremony to celebrate the launch of their new vessels on July 5th in Busan, South Korea. Over 100 officials and other dignitaries including the CEO of HMM C.K. Yoo were in attendance to see the launch of the newly-built 11,000 TEU containership, HMM Promise.

The HMM Promise along with her sister ship the HMM Blessing are equipped with state-of-the-art scrubber systems to drastically reduce sulfur emissions. The scrubber system was retrofitted to the ships after they had been delivered by the Korean shipbuilder Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction.

The new scrubber systems were installed to ensure they meet the new environmental regulations that come into force in 2020.  An official from HMM explained, “The HMM Promise is the world’s first commercially operating mega container vessel of more than 11,000 TEUs equipped with a large scrubber system and her engine that ensures optimal economic speed and performance is expected to save fuel.”

The HMM Promise will go into active service on the East Coast of South America. While her sister ship the HMM Blessing will be in operation on the West Coast of South America.
