Like all other carriers operating in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, Finnlines will have to comply with the new sulphur regulations that are set to come into force on January 1st next year, and this prospect has now made the company order scrubbers from two different suppliers, according to a statement issued by Finnlines to the Helsinki Stock Exchange.
