The DNV GL approved Procal 2000 can provide in situ monitoring of up to six exhaust gasses

Parker Procal has received DNV GL approval for its Procal 2000 emissions analyser, which was certified as meeting industry requirements on testing for CO2, SOx and NOx.

The in situ analyser satisfies MEPC 184(59) Chapter 6 on emission testing of CO2 and SO2, as well as the requirements of the revised MARPOL Annex VI and NOx Technical Code 2008 on measuring NOx emissions. The certification aids ship owners in providing robust evidence to demonstrate compliance with ECA regulations, the company said.
Procal 2000 analyses gasses from the combustion of residual and distillate fuel, and also measures the water content of exhaust so that CO2 and SO2 can be reported on both a wet and a dry basis – in compliance with ECA regulations in port and in international waters.
Chris Daw of Procal said: “DNV GL certification is a significant step for the Procal 2000 analyser, particularly as the industry is recognising the importance of ontinuous emissions monitoring systems in ensuring compliance with increasingly stringent emissions regulations.

“With the latest ECA regulations and incoming EU Monitoring, Reporting and Verification requirements, ship owners are under significant pressure to prove compliance or face significant fines they can ill afford.”

The analyser can measure up to six exhaust gases and is connected to a data acquisition system that displays, data logs and transmits the monitored concentrations and SO2:CO2 ratio - in accordance with IMO regulations - without manual intervention.

‘In situ’ monitoring provides a continuous, real-time measurement of the content of exhaust gases, as opposed to extractive monitoring.
