The company has contracted with Green Tech Marine for the outfitting of the scrubbers on Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Dawn, Norwegian Jewel, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Sun.

The scrubbers will be installed starting this spring and installation will continue through 2016. Green Tech Marine also supplied the scrubbers on the line’s Hawaii-based Pride of America last year and will deliver 10 scrubbers to the company’s two new builds, Norwegian Escape and Norwegian Bliss, being constructed in Germany.

“We remain committed to environmental protection at Norwegian Cruise Line,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “Therefore, it is important for us to invest in new technologies, such as Green Tech’s innovative scrubber systems, in order to reduce fuel emissions, overall energy consumption, and the company’s environmental footprint.”

Green Tech Marine is a world leading scrubber supplier that develops innovative, environmentally friendly, high-performance, energy-saving solutions to the marine industry. Green Tech’s compact scrubber systems will replace the current silencers on all six Norwegian vessels.

“We are very pleased to have Norwegian Cruise Line as a returning customer,” says CEO Peter Strandberg. “The decision to install scrubber systems on six additional ships demonstrates Norwegian Cruise Line’s commitment to environmental regulations and reaffirms that Green Tech Marine’s scrubbers have taken a strong position in the exhaust gas cleaning market.”
