Pacific Green Technologies has installed its first ENVI-Marine Exhaust Gas Scrubbing System for the fleet operator Union Maritime (UML).

The Westminster chemical tanker is the first UML vessel to be fitted with the scrubber under the agreement signed in December 2016 with an intent for UML to purchase up to ten systems over the following eighteen months

“This is another huge milestone in the company’s history with PGT proving its patented technology in the marine sector as the shipping industry prepares for the IMO regulations to take force worldwide in just over two years,” said Dr Neil Carmichael, chief executive of PGT and chairman of Pacific Green Marine Technologies Ltd.

The system was installed after successful testing was conducted to monitor and certify the emissions output on the ENVI-Marine System’s performance on the vessel.

Emission results on the ENVI-Marine were between zero sulphur detectable up to a maximum of SO2 ppm/CO2% of 0.21 for navigate full in open mode, which is equivalent to an oil sulphur content of 0.005%, which is 5% of the allowable limit.

In closed mode at various speeds, the ENVI-Marine performance was between SO2 ppm/CO2% of 0.06 and SO2 ppm/CO2 of 0.6 which is equivalent to an oil sulphur content of 0.015%, which is 15% of the allowable limit.

Regulations for SECA are at a maximum sulphur emission of SO2 ppm/CO2% of 4.3 (which is equivalent to an oil sulphur content of 0.1%).

PGT said that the ENVI-Marine performance on UML’s Westminster is a substantially better than the maximum emissions limits regulation for both SECA and IMO 2020 Regulations in either open or closed modes.
