Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has selected Martek Marine Ltd’s EVOLUTION emissions monitoring systems for its LNG-fuelled Aframax tankers that are currently being built for Sovcomflot.
The system can be configured to any number of engines and multiple gases. They monitor over 800 marine engines and have over 5 million operating hours of experience.
The 114 000 DWT Ice-class IA Aframax tankers, measuring 250 m in length, 44 m in width and 21 m in height, are scheduled to be delivered from the 3Q18 and to be chartered to Shell.
The order for the four vessels is valued at US$240 million.
To enable IMO Tier III compliance on liquid fuel operating mode, the contract also specifies the supply of low-pressure selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. The emissions monitoring system will then monitor the emissions and thus the efficacy of the SCR through analysis of NOx, SOx and CO2 using infra-red analysers.
