Martek Marine wins ship emissions monitoring orders

Martek Marine, a UK manufacturer of maritime equipment, has won a series of large orders for its MariNOx Evolution on-board emissions monitoring and engine efficiency system with Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering and Hyundai Heavy Industries.

The MariNOx Evolution is a ship emissions system that can measure SOx, NOx, CO2, CH4, NO2, THC, H2C, Benzene and N20, and is designed to enable simple and automated Marine Equipment Directive (MED) certified compliance with the MEPC 177(58) NOx Technical Code 2008, as well as MARPOL Annex VI and MEPC 103(49).

Martek Marine said MariNOx Evolution is simple and quick to install at low cost for shipyards because all engines are monitored via a single sample line without the need to install a complex dilution arrangement requiring dry air supplies at each engine.
