Unique Group, one of the world’s leading integrated marine and subsea solution providers, has become a major shareholder in Kamelia Cleantech. This partnership will offer a full range of end-to-end integrated scrubber solutions for removing Sulphur dioxide from vessel exhausts for the global shipping industry. Kamelia Cleantech, a prominent exhaust gas scrubber solution provider, will combine its technical knowledge with Unique Group’s global presence to provide flexible customised solutions for new and old vessels with minimised downtime.

The scrubber systems provided by Kamelia Cleantech are modular and can be offered as open loop, hybrid & hybrid ready. The systems are tailored according to the vessel and client requirements, thus ensuring fast turnaround and efficient service.

Sahil Gandhi, Chief Operating Officer of Unique Group, commented: "This partnership is an excellent fit for both Unique Group and Kamelia Cleantech. It is a key value addition to our portfolio, and we can now help clients comply with IMO regulations with our scrubber solutions.  We also have the capability to combine the scrubber work with our other services to give clients an integrated package.”

The revolutionary ‘work on voyage’ approach adopted by Kamelia Cleantech ensures the opportunity costs are reduced up to 70%, helping vessel operators & owners significantly.

Kaisa Marton, Managing Director of Kamelia Cleantech, added: "We can truly help vessels reduce the Sulphur emissions from their exhausts according to the IMO Sulphur Emission Cap Regulations and contribute to a cleaner environment in the most economical way. The incorporation of Kamelia Cleantech into Unique Group extends our global presence and gives us the critical mass to deliver technically superior, end-to-end exhaust gas scrubber solutions to clients all over the world.”

Kamelia Cleantech’s smart and adaptive control software, an integral part of the solution, helps optimise vessel operations by regulating alkali usage in closed loop operation as well as scrubber water consumption for all operation modes, thereby leading to cost savings for the client.
