Scrubber retrofits could rein in boxship capacity

With vessels pulled from service for upwards of a month to be scrubber-retrofitted, analyst Drewry says the impact on capacity could spur a temporary spot market boost. The short-term spike is greater enhanced, as the emphasis for exhaust technology is towards larger ships. Although only 5% of the fleet is expected to be retrofitted, this ratio is doubled in teu terms.

Drewry says that 266 boxships, representing an aggregate 2.2m teu of capacity, will be scrubber-retrofitted before emission regulation is enforced
