Measurements of the scrubber efficiency were done onboard a RoPax ship. Measurements showed that scrubber reduce effectively the SO2 concentration from the exhaust gas and also concentration of NOx was reduced. CO and hydrocarbon concentrations were reduced by diesel oxidant catalyst located before scrubber.
Measurements were made in co-operation between Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), Tampere University of Technology (TUT) and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd. (VTT).
EnviSuM workshop will be held on 23rd March in St. Petersburg.
The goal of the workshop is to present the positive effects of environmental regulations on air quality and human health with special focus on urban areas, and to discuss the possibilities for increasing collaboration within clean shipping around the Baltic Sea.
This Policy Brief gives you an idea what kind of economic effects SECA have on oil refining industry and thereby to regional economy. An Estonian oil shale processing company, Viru Keemia Grupp, is used as an example.
Maritime Development Center organises an event on international sulfur regulation. The requirements on sulfur reductions on the shipping industry will deliver significant reductions in the environmental impact of international shipping. Come and discuss with us of the following burning issues
What will be the challenges for the ship owners in 2020?
Enforcement of thesulphur regulation – jurisdictional limitations and opportunities
Pick and choose programme to Lidköping LBG Plant, Port of Gothenburg, DFDS Petunia Seaways and Nya Älvsborg Meassurement station in Gothenburg, Sweden
From 9th to 10th of May, 2017
Two and a half years have passed since the Baltic Sea Region was introduced as a Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA).
It is time to take a closer look at the lessons learned and the experiences gained by shipowners, ports, maritime equipment producers and authorities in the Baltic Sea Region. And what is the business potential that has emerged as a result of the innovations brought on by the SECA regulation?
This study visit takes the form of a “Pick n’ Choose” a programme where you can participate in either;
A study visit to Lidköping Biogas Plant or a visit to DFDS Petunia Seaways (scrubber vessel) on the 9th of May
On the 10th of May, you can take part in a panel discussion or a company visit and later on join us for a guided tour around the Port of Gothenburg and a visit to Nya Älvsborg Emission Measurement Station
This survey is about the Economic impacts of Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA) regulations on maritime market stakeholders. Your comments will help policy makers get a better view of your challenges as a Maritime stakeholder in your compliance, improve human health and protect the environment of BSR.
The final result will be consolidated together with other project activities into a final “Economic Guidelines for SECA” comprising of policy and business recommendations, and an “Investment Decision Tool” for all Maritime stakeholders.
Typically, survey takes 10 -15 minutes to complete.
Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA) was created in May 2005 to enforce a stricter control to minimize airborne emissions from ships. Thus ships that operate within SECA must use on board fuel with sulphur content of no more than 0.1% from 1 January 2015. The implications of this clean shipping regulations on the activities of the maritime stakeholders is directly and indirectly linked to the economic decision that will ensue in their efforts to comply.
