Maritime solutions from KBB Turbo

Seagoing vessels are subject to the regulations of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). One of the goals this has set itself is to reduce sulphur oxide (SOx) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from shipping. To this end, so-called “Emission Control Areas” (ECAs) have been designated in which very strict emission regulations apply for ships.

Whereas low sulphur oxide emissions can be achieved by using low-sulphur fuels, additional exhaust aftertreatment systems are needed to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions.

Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) is an industrially established process in which a urea solution (DEF or AdBlue®) is admixed to the fuel so as to convert harmful nitrogen oxides into safe water and nitrogen.

The KBB EMx system combines high nitrogen oxide reduction rates with low urea consumptions in a compact system. This makes our solution suitable for both new projects, but particularly for retrofitting existing vessels.

If combined with a diesel particulate filter, even stricter emission regulations such as EU Stage V can be achieved. Furthermore, certificates such as “Greenaward” or “ultra-low emission vessel” (ULEV) are possible.
