Rotterdam-based Value Maritime (VM) has recently opened an office in Singapore to be closer to clients and grow our operations in the important and expanding Asia Pacific shipping market.

The new office is based in the Singapore Central Business District (CBD). Milou van der Ven will represent Value Maritime from Singapore as the Area Manager for Asia.

VM invented the Filtree System – a prefabricated gas cleaning system for ships that filters sulphur and 99% of particulate matter and includes a Carbon Capture Module that captures CO2 onboard. VM has been significantly building their client base with European and Asian shipping companies since 2018.

Yvette van der Sommen, Director Asia Pacific – Value Maritime, said: “Having our feet firmly on the ground in Singapore, a global hub for sustainable shipping and decarbonisation, means we can be even closer to our growing client base in Asia. Excitingly, we will also expand our local network, further business development opportunities, develop our CO2 infrastructure and usage options and provide a full circle offering to the Asia Pacific market.”

Some of Value Maritime’s clients with operations in Asia include tanker owners Ardmore Shipping, Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS) and container shipping company X-Press feeders.

The Filtree System, suitable for both existing and new vessels, is based on a technology that filters sulphur and ultra-fine particles from the exhaust gases and purifies wash water. In addition, a patented CO2 capture and storage module is integrated into the system. The CO2 can be offloaded and re-used in greenhouses to grow crops or make alternative fuels resulting in a 100% circular solution.
