In addition to the condition - and operation monitoring, about existing optimization potentials, the measurement of emission levels, because of environmental regulations (MARPOL), are more and more important.
The ever more stringent limits of NOX and SOx, force the ship operators to invest in an emission reduced shipping operation and to document the operation in the allowed limits.
This could lead to potential cost savings in spare parts and harbor costs. Therefore the crew need’s measurement technique which allows a quick measurement and documentation of emission levels.
Measurement equipment based on electrochemical sensors is the optimal tool for use on board. This technique offers, in comparison to the stationary measurement, the advantage that the equipment have a very high availability and very low maintenance.
