NOVEMBER 6, 2012 — Rotherham, U.K., headquartered Martek Marine has won a series of orders from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering and Hyundai Heavy Industries for its MariNOx Evolution on-board emissions monitoring and engine efficiency system.
One the seven orders is for what Martek says is "the world's largest and most complicated emissions monitoring system ever to measure SOx, NOx, CO2, CH4, NO2, THC, H2S, Benzene and N20."
The MariNOx Evolution system designed to enable simple and 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).
"Korean shipyards continue to choose Martek over other fledgling competitors because of our vast experience and the unique features of MariNOx Evolution," says Martek Marine's 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 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."
Martek Marine says the MariNOx Evolution is the simplest, quickest and lowest cost system to install for shipyards because all engines are monitored via a single sample line without the need to install a complex dilution arrangement requiring dry air supplies at each engine.
