MSC, the world’s largest container shipping company, was the “scrubber champion” for 2022, as the Swiss/Italian box line ended the year with the largest number of scrubber-fitted vessels, according to DynaLiners report.

In particular, 216 boxships of MSC are equipped with scrubbers, translating to an overall capacity of 2,132,700 TEUs.

Additionally, one of Taiwan’s major ocean carriers, Evergreen has achieved the biggest scrubber-fitted fleet as a proportion of its total fleet. Evergreen’s 150 scrubber-fitted vessels constitute 72% of the company’s overall fleet.

On the other hand, DynaLiners notes that Maersk and CMA CGM reported quite low scores, as the two container giants have been focussing on using alternative fuels.

Overall, at the end of last year, the ten carriers with the biggest scrubber-fitted fleets in terms of the number of vessels operated 778 ships, in which this exhaust gas cleaning device was installed. This was equivalent to 23% of their total number of ships, while by capacity this was 7.98 million TEUs representing 35% of their total box capacity.
