DFDS welcomed press to scrubber event

Last week DFDS, in collaboration with Clean Ship Alliance 2020, welcomed 11 journalists from various international trade publications on board Freesia Seaways and in the Ghent terminal. DFDS’ hosts were Poul Woodall, Director of Environment, and Sam de Wilde, Managing Director of Ferry Belgium.

The purpose of the visit was to give the guests a first-hand impression of a marine scrubber – an event that coincided with the 10th anniversary of the initial scrubber installation on Ficaria Seaways.

Following a tour of Freesia, which included a front row view of the drone testing highlighted in a recent article, the group was hosted at the North Sea Ports visitors centre where various presentations were made by DFDS, North Sea Ports and Clean Shipping Alliance 2020.

Lunch was enjoyed while sailing around the harbour and ended with seeing Freesia Seaways steaming up the river on its way back to Gothenburg.

The Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 (CSA 2020) represents a group of leading companies from the commercial and passenger shipping industries that have been leaders in emission control efforts.
