“K” Line : Actual Ship Onboard Test of SCR System for Diesel Generator Started on 8,600TEU New Container Ship “HANOI BRIDGE”

KLINE125Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd., Japan Marine United Corporation and Daihatsu Diesel Mfg.Co. will begin actual on-board ship tests of Selective Catalytic Reduction System (SCR System) for Diesel Generator to confirm  the attainment of  NOx TierⅢ Regulations in MARPOL Annex VI.

NOx TierⅢ regulations, effective from January 1st 2016, in MARPOL Annex VI necessitates us to reduce NOx emissions in ECA (Emission Control Area) by more than 80% compared with TierⅠRegulations. One of the technical measures is Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), therefore research and development concerning SCR is being conducted in various fields.

SCR System has been installed on small coastal ships in Northern Europe, and has been used at land-based plants. However, there is no previous example of it being introduced on large ocean-going ships. Therefore, we have to confirm attainment of  NOx TierⅢ Regulations and solve any  problems by conducting actual on-board ship  tests.

“K” Line have therefore decided to install this SCR System for Diesel Generator Engine and carry out operational testing on “HANOI BRIDGE”, which is a large container vessel (8600TEU) to be delivered on March 26th, 2013.

The SCR System has now been installed in this vessel, and we can confirmed that this system will fulfill the appropriate specification during Sea trials.

The effectiveness of SCR System will be measured and will verify whether a problem exists during the 18 month period after this vessel is delivered.

Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd., Japan Marine United Corporation, and Daihatsu Diesel Mfg.Co. will cooperate with each other for global environmental conservation, and actively address variable technology developments.

This project is supported by Nippon Kaiji Kyokai as the scheme of “Collaborative Research Requested by The Industry“
