Called the Emsys-iS, the new system is targeted at both scrubber manufacturers and shipowners, and will be officially launched at SMM 2014 in Hamburg.

"Our standard Emsys extractive unit was just too over-specified for the application," said Simon Brown, international business director at WR.

"Scrubbers just need monitoring of SO2 and CO2, so all our other gases and PM features were not required. Our customers love the calibration-free laser technology but asked us to pare down the specification and make it a more compact unit which helps in their scrubber retrofits."

"Our team looked at simplifying the installation, reducing the monitored gases and removing the non-mandated gases. The Emsys-iS has all the horsepower of Emsys, just in a small and, more importantly, cost-effective package."

WR plans to start delivering the new product on January 1, 2015, to coincide with the introduction of the IMO Emissions Control Area regulations regarding sulphur.
