Monthly penetration rate of scrubbers in the global fleet by vessel type 2019-2020

In July 2020, containerships overtook oil tankers as the type of vessel with the highest share of scrubber installations. Nearly one-quarter of the global container fleet was equipped with exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS), up from less than three percent in July 2019. At the beginning of 2019, yards started ramping up the scrubber retrofits in preparation for the IMO 2020 sulfur cap.
