Novenco, Alfa Laval Develop Low Sulfur Fuel Oil Solution

Monday, July 25, 2011

Novenco and Alfa Laval have joined forces to provide a professional and complete cooling solution: Alfa Laval Advanced Cooling System (ACS). The system will allow ships to safely operate with any quality of Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LSFO). Collaboration started in March 2010 and the two companies signed an official partner agreement on November 23rd the same year. ACS is specially designed for easy installation in restricted space areas. Novenco’s QCM chiller unit delivers chilled water to the Alfa Laval Fuel Conditioning Module (FCM) at a very stable temperature, enabling accurate control of fuel oil viscosity in all conditions. The viscosity of LSFO can be accurately controlled regardless of seawater temperature, which gives the crew the confidence to operate the ship safely anywhere in the world. This capability is increasingly important due to tightening SECA restrictions. Today, ships require a fuel system that conditions LSFO sufficiently to ensure safe operation of all machinery. Without this, many parts of the world will fall outside of operational limits. Alfa Laval and Novenco have seen a steady increase in the demand for ACS. The reference list of commissioned systems is considerable and covers all ship types. The close corporation between the two companies ensures the best possible support and service for customers.
