Martek says that the shipyards have agreed seven orders for these systems, worth more than US$1 million.
Amongst the orders is a request to deliver what Martek describes as “the largest and most complicated emissions monitoring system ever to measure SOx, NOx, CO2, CH4, NO2, THC, H2S, Benzene and N2O.”
MariNOx Evolution is designed to enable automated Marine Equipment Directive (MED) certified compliance with the MEPC 177(58) NOx Technical Code 2008, as well as MARPOL Annex VI and MEPC 103(49).
All engines are monitored via a single sample line, which the company says removes the need to install a dilution arrangement requiring dry air supplies at each engine.
“Korean yards continue to choose Martek over other fledgling competitors because of our vast experience and the unique features of MariNOx Evolution,” said Martek Marine managing director, Paul Luen.
“Over 100 of our systems have already been installed and have clocked up millions of operating hours. None of our competitors can even come close to this level of critical application experience across many different ship types, hence the confidence our customers enjoy in their choice.”
“Yards are building more fuel efficient and less polluting ships and so are turning to our world-class solution to help them achieve this. We have a team of local experienced Korean MariNOx engineers who are able to install and commission MariNOx Evolution systems and have developed a particularly close working relationship with the Korean yards.”
MariNOx Evolution was introduced in 2010 following further development and engineering on the original MariNOx system, launched in 2005.
