RCCL to Add “Scrubbers” to 19 Ships

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd said today they will add Advanced Emission Purification systems (AEP - a/k/a “scrubbers”) to 19 of their Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity branded ships.
   Once installed, the AEP systems will reduce sulfur dioxide emissions from the diesel engines by more than 97%. This will assure the ships are in compliance with  International Maritime Organization (IMO) Emission Control Area emissions standards.
