Shipowners must operate their ships efficiently in order to be competitive. Data from all over the ship, including emissions, can be analyzed to pinpoint where optimizations can be implemented.
Using emission measurement all over the ship, contributes to an overall overview of processes in the ship, from which trend analyses can be conducted via an emission data software platform. This can be used to help optimize processes (for example via engine control), detect defects before reaching any damaging outcomes, etc. Furthermore, a combination of sensor information can be used to optimize engine parameters in a way that optimizes fuel consumption and level of emissions at the same time.
Yanmar: Cost efficient Selective Catalytic Reduction process with marine emission monitoring
Yanmar, global provider of marine diesel engines, has throughout a long-term partnership, tested NOx, SO2 and NH3 sensor, MES 1001, in a closed loop application for its Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology.
