A state-of-the-art selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system and a next-generation advanced wastewater treatment (AWT) system will mean greatly reduced emissions for MSC Seashore, which is under construction at shipbuilder Fincantieri’s Monfalcone yard in Italy.

A MSC spokesperson says SCR reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by 90 per cent through advanced active emissions control technology and an AWT systems take wastewater through a comprehensive process of purification and very fine filtration that transforms it into nearly tap-water quality.

MSC Seashore will also be fitted with shore-to-ship power capabilities that allow the vessel to connect to local power grids while at berth, further reducing air emissions.

Set to be delivered in July 2021, MSC Seashore is one of the biggest and most technologically advanced ships ever built in Italy.
