Oman bans open-loop scrubbers

Oman bans open-loop scrubbers
Oman has joined the list of countries that ban the use of open-loop scrubbers from its waters.

According to ship agency GAC Oman’s Ministry of Transport said it will only allow the use of closed-loop scrubbers in the country’s territorial waters, with hybrid scrubbers having to be used in closed loop operation.

GAC said that washwater from scrubbers could not be disposed of on Omani waters except for private facilities in its ports, and ships must maintain accurate records of washwater.

Oman joins a number of other countries that have banned open-loop scrubbers following the introduction of the IMO 2020 regulation on low sulphur fuel including China, Singapore and Malaysia.
