New exhaust system meets IMO

ADVERTISEMENT

MarQuip, a designer and producer of exhaust systems, has launched CombiClean, an exhaust system that complies with IMO Tier III emission regulations scheduled to come into effect on Jan. 1, 2016.

The regulations will see a 74 percent reduction in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions compared to Tier II levels, and vessels with a keel-laid date on or after Jan. 1, 2016 that travel in NOx Emission Control Areas (ECA) will require IMO Tier III-certified engines. There are ECAs in North America, the Caribbean and the Baltic.

CombiClean combines a particle diesel burner, silencer/muffler for noise level compliance and, if requested, a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) unit and heat exchanger.
