SCHIFFSTECHNIK | SHIP TECHNOLOGY From turbo to tailpipe Turbocharging experts KBB have teamed up with exhaust gas after-treatment specialists Eminox to combine proven management technologies, so combustion engines can exist alongside alternative power systems as part of a net zero emissions future All over the world. All about your success. Five good reasons to use XBEE Enzyme Fuel Technology is a natural fuel Benefits additive and is OEM recommended solves performance Benefits problems related to fuel quality is used by thousands Benefits of customers all around the world Benefits Benefits Anzeige-A4_RZ.indd 1 02.08.2021 21:51:43 www.heinowintergroup.com | Shop: www.heinowinter.com Benefits Emissions reduction legislation, such as IMO III, EU Stage V and EPA standards – and future standards – are pressing operators and owners of marine and power generation equipment to be compliant. While some already opt for alternative solutions like LNG or methanol German turbocharging experts KBB also look at current technology together with their British partner Eminox. Targeting exhaust emissions reductions for applications from 1 to 10 MW, KBB and Eminox have developed a fully integrated emissions control solution for retrofits and new engines that minimises the overall package space required to meet the necessary emissions performance. Advanced urea mixing techniques help to keep the system compact whilst high performance selective catalytic reduction (SCR) helps to minimise the overall catalyst volume. Additionally, the design of the diesel particulate filter (DPF) unit optimises the exhaust flow distribution under all operating conditions minimising the regeneration frequency and reducing the total regeneration time. The turbo and tailpipe components were harmonized to deliver an optimised solution to control the exhaust emissions and ensure cost effective compliance with the latest regulations for the life of the engine whether for new build or refitting applications. »We are making ›from turbo to tailpipe‹ a reality,« Eminox technical sales expert, Brian Bates, told HANSA recently when the two companies launched their »marriage«. »Diesel engines in the marine sector are not going away anytime soon. We have to accept that a diesel engines is not carbon neutral, so we have to clean up current operating systems,« Bates said. »This technology can buy you more time to get to the new technologies,« added KBB managing director Roman Drozdowski. »It is a proven technology that we bring to the marine customers who need fuel economy, availability and durability of 30 to 40 years.« The KBB-EMx-Solution was designed with modularity in mind. The catalysts modules are of standard size and use technologies which can be applied across the entire range of system sizes. The auxiliary components are also developed to use a standard range of components irrelevant of the overall system size. All elements of the KBB-EMx system design are optimised to ensure aligned service intervals and minimum total cost of ownership. The Eminox/KBB solution is designed for over 20 years of service, lowering operational costs, and positively supporting the resale value of engines and vessels. According to the companies, the system is future-proofed and upgradeable as and when legislation changes. »The modular design is a key to offer a solution for existing engines rooms,« Drozdowski said. »This is not only driven by legislation, it also is a commitment to make a step in the right direction. Don’t wait 50 years for alternatives, start now.« According to Drozdowski, testbed testing of the system is now running as well as the validation process with classification societies. He is confident that the combined will help customers meet maritime standards while reducing the total cost of ownership of their diesel engines. fs © KBB 42 HANSA – International Maritime Journal 02 | 2022

SCHIFFSTECHNIK | SHIP TECHNOLOGY Next generation data-acquisition With the next generation of its automated data-acquisition system, Metis Cyberspace Technology intends to set new standards in digital shipping to enable solutions needed for the future operation of vessels and fleets The Greek company aims to facilitate the development and mass implementation of advanced shipping applications right up to the level of autonomous vessels. Its automated dataacquisition system Ship Connect was upgraded to enhance data transfer and monitoring while also enabling the development of ship performance analytics based on standard protocols. Through a unified data-transmission framework, the upgraded system enables processing and visualization of real-time and historical data both on board and ashore. Readings are transferred from vessel equipment to the Metis cloud platform. Data is collected on board by so-called Wireless Intelligent Collectors (WIC). These devices connect directly to the machinery, instruments or sensors. WICs have wired and wireless networking options for minimizing dependence on cabling thus simplifying installation. The cost of the installation on a vessel depends on many factors as the architecture of the data acquisition system differs significantly for each vessel installation. »Since no two vessels, even sister ones, are actually identical, there are several factors that determine the topology and the hardware (WICs) to be installed. The brand, maker or model of equipment such as the AMS, navigation equipment, anemometer, cargo control as well as the existence or not of equipment such as flow meters, torque meters, scrubbers, ballast water system, etc. play an important role for the installation,« Metis’ Andreas Symeonidis tells HANSA. The system can be installed on both newbuilds and existing vessels. »We have developed specialized functionality for each different vessel category (tankers, bulkers, containerships, LNG/ LPG, OSV) to address the specific needs that each one has,« Symeonidis says. Metis offers three service plans, so each owner can choose the depth of the analysis he wishes to deploy on his vessels. With the latest generation of Ship Connect, Metis wants to »set the standard for the interoperability which will shape shipping’s digital future«. Backed by MQTT, the new standard messaging protocol for the IoT, and Google’s Protocol Buffers (Protobuf) language- and platform-neutral mechanism for serialising structured data, the system’s new framework is also scalable to accommodate the installation of millions of IoT devices. Ship Connect is built on widely supported, open-source architecture as opposed to closed, proprietary systems. It therefore allows cross-platform integration and seamless interconnection with third-party systems. fs © Metis Carsten Most Tel. 040/72003-120 | E-Mail: carsten.most@akzonobel.com HANSA – International Maritime Journal 02 | 2022 43
