LNG-fuelled tankers to install emissions monitoring system

Hyundai Heavy Industries has agreed a deal with Martek Marine in the UK to install EVOLUTION emissions monitoring systems on the world’s first LNG fuelled Aframax tankers, being built for Russian shipping line Sovcomflot.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The EVOLUTION system, now in its third generation, has been installed on approximately 260 ships to date and has been supplied to Hyundai for more than 12 years. The system can be configured for use with any number of engines and for multiple gas types.

The 114,000 dwt Ice-class IA Aframax tankers under construction are scheduled to be delivered from the third quarter of 2018 and to be chartered to Shell. The four-vessel order is valued at US$240 million.

To enable IMO Tier III compliance on liquid fuel operating mode, the contract specifies the supply of a low-pressure selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. The EVOLUTION emissions monitoring system will monitor vessel emissions to verify the performance of the SCR through analysis of NOx, SOx and CO2 using infra-red analysers.{/mprestriction}
