Marine And Offshore Emissions Monitoring & Analysis
The need to demonstrate environmental responsibility is key for today’s marine and offshore industries. Fuels and exhaust gas emissions are subject to international, regional and national controls and Charterers, as well as the public, demand high standards of performance and reliability.
The penalties for non-compliance are potentially huge. Whilst the pace of change has created uncertainty and appears to have pushed the boundaries for some technologies, the Procal 2000 emissions monitoring system has been proven in long term service onboard ships as a robust and reliable method of confirming compliance with emissions regulations.
Procal 2000's emissions monitoring system is approved for the analysis of exhaust gases from the engines and boilers of ships and offshore rigs. Robust and with proven reliability, up to six gases can be measured including SO2, CO2 and NOx.
The system comprises up to 6 exhaust mounted analysers, each with automatic verification facilities. Emissions data from the entire system is securely managed and displayed at a dedicated panel PC, with outputs to networks, control systems, and reporting facilities.
The advanced Procal 2000 analyser uses an in situ (inside the exhaust) sample cell so avoiding the need to extract gas. Importantly, this avoids the use of costly, high maintenance sample handling systems, and enables analysis of an unmodified, truly representative gas sample.
Exhaust gases from the combustion of residual and distillate fuels can be analysed so that compliance can be confirmed in port, in Emissions Control Areas and in international waters. The Procal 2000 design includes highly effective sintered filters that prevent the ingress of particulate matter into the sample cell and a heater to prevent condensation and deposits where the exhaust is below its dew point. Materials of construction are ideally suited to the marine environment.
