Shipyards losing race to retrofit scrubbers
The average time for installation of a scrubber is 40 days, longer than the anticipated 30 days, says the consultancy Alphatanker. Delays will keep at least 40 to 50 tankers offhire for the rest of the year
Some 86 tankers have entered dry dock for retrofitting scrubbers so far in 2019, acording to Alphatanker, compared with 153 bulk carriers and 76 containerships.
