Equinox: "Scrubber" Installed?

Recommended Posts

Good day.  Is the Equinox one of the Celebrity ships that has been retrofitted with a "scrubber" (reduces air pollution)?

An 2014 article indicated that Celebrity would be adding SO2 scrubbers to 6 unidentified ships.


There were 10 ships in the fleet at that time - including the Equinox. So don't know if the Equinox was one of those six.

But if she isn't, then she must burn low sulfur diesel fuel when within the various ECA's (Emission Control Areas) around the world, like North America (200 miles from shore), Baltic, and North Sea.  And, even a ship fitted with a scrubber is not required to use it when outside the above mentioned ECA's.
