Can owners ask charterers to pay towards the cost of installation of a scrubber?

In general, if owners decide to install a scrubber, installation will be at their cost. We are aware of some owners who have negotiated a commercial allocation of the cost of installation of a scrubber for a long-term fixture between themselves and charterers, given that charterers will benefit from fuel cost savings.
