Marine Emissions Analysers In Focus

18th July 2023

This month, representatives from 175 shipping nations convened in London, under the supervision of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), a United Nations body. Their objective is to negotiate a revised timetable for achieving complete decarbonisation of the shipping industry. The Protea 2000 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.

Advocates are pushing for a more stringent goal, aiming for a 50% reduction by 2030 and a new target of net-zero emissions by 2050. Some proponents go even further, proposing a faster timeline for achieving full decarbonization by 2040. "If member states can successfully accomplish this, they will align the shipping sector with the temperature objectives of the Paris Agreement and foster investments in green technologies that will fundamentally reshape the industry," stated Kerrlene Wills, the Director for Ocean and Climate at the UN Climate Foundation.

Enhanced Customer Support - Recent upgrades include our new Automatic Field Data Collection (AFDC) module that uniquely allows the ship's engineer to automatically run a routine collecting all the relevant data from the analyser under the various states of operation. This can then be e-mailed to Protea’s customer support team who will analyse and determine any remedial action required. Protea will upgrade existing Procal supplied CEMS saving the ships operator time and expenses and increasing emission data availability.
