Major lines eye scrubbers or LNG for next mega ship orders

Scrubber fittings to go with newbuild orders for large containerships still make economic sense, even though the fuel oil price spread has narrowed against popular expectations

Hundreds more container vessels may go on order in the next two years, with a focus on 23,000 teu and 12,000 teu to 15,000 teu units. These vessels are likely to be fitted with scrubbers or LNG propulsion, which appear to be the preferred pathways among container lines to comply with emission rules
