Holland America Cruise Vessel Seawater Scrubber Demonstration Project

Location: West Coast

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) has partnered with the Holland America Line (HAL) group (Holland America Line, Carnival Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, British Petroleum, and Caterpillar), Environment Canada, and the BC Clean Air Research Fund to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of advanced seawater scrubbing technology at reducing emissions. The project partners will achieve this goal by designing, installing, and testing scrubbing technology on a 1,500 passenger cruise ship, HAL’s Vessel ms Zaandam, which operates in Hawaii, Alaska, and along the West Coast.
