Another successful Propulsion & Emissions Conference
The 36th ‘Motorship’ propulsion and emissions conference concluded on 22 May in Hamburg, and was judged to be another highly successful event.
This was followed by a session on monitoring exhaust emissions, with speakers from ECSA and the Danish Shipowners Association representing the owners, with Siemens and VAF Instruments from the industry. An interesting discussion following the day’s first two sessions stressed the importance of a fair, global and universal system of monitoring and classing ships for energy efficiency, with some owners querying the sheer amount of data that seemed to be needed onboard.
Following the lunch break, Ole Grøne of MAN Diesel & Turbo outlined the company’s EGR and SCR solutions for IMO Tier III, with a session following on the all-important question of how ports could enforce the emissions regulations. A further shipowner panel discussed the question, before chairman Lars Robert Pedersen of BIMCO brought the event to a close.
