WR Systems (WR) announce new Korean & Chinese shipyard contracts for its Emsys Emissions Monitoring System.

During December, the company received new construction contract awards for multiple shipsets from shipyards in China and Korea.  In addition, the company announced that it received contracts for retrofit applications for a further two suppliers of Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (Scrubbers).

The latest contract values exceed $1M and probably raise WR to the position of leading supplier of maritime Emission Monitoring Systems (EMS).

The Emsys system was introduced in September 2010 as a 2nd Generation EMS technology featuring laser based multi-gas sensor and an integral Particulate Matter (PM) sensor. WR also recently announced the award of a patent on its PM sensor which allows measurement of soot and particulates ‘outside of the exhaust stack’, a world’s first.

WR’s President, Dave Edwards commented,  ‘We developed Emsys for two reasons, firstly to demonstrate to the industry our capability to design a robust high-tech sensor which overcomes the traditional reliability and maintenance issues with first generation EMS systems, and in addition, we were determined to earn a solid reputation for equipment performance and dependable, affordable service.’

Edwards continued, ‘We are now working with the world’s largest shipbuilders in Korea, China and Japan, in addition to oil majors, drilling contractors, cruise ship operators, containership operators, LNG operators and scrubber manufacturers amongst others. Our commercial maritime team has grown extensively since Emsys was launched, culminating in the recent opening of our Commercial Maritime Technology Centre in Jacksonville, Florida, which specialises in manufacturing full navigation bridge suites and service/support of marine electronics worldwide.
