Cemtrex Inc. said that it is pursuing the emissions monitoring market for
marine ships and cruise lines for measurement of nitrogen oxide and smoke.
The International Maritime Organization
(IMO) adopted Annex VI of
MARPOL that provides regulations for the prevention of air pollution from
ships. The Marine Environment Protection Committee
(MEPC) of the IMO
subsequently passed several subsidiary regulations.
"Diesel engines with a power output of more than 130 kWh have to meet
the requirements of NOx emission and this applies to ships constructed
on/after January 1, 2000 and engines that undergo major conversion on/after
January 1, 2000," said Aron Govil, CEO & President of Cemtrex.
are three options for ship owners to document compliance with the NOx
requirements of a ship after the initial survey such as engine parameter
check, on-board simplified measurement, and on-board direct measurement and
Cemtrex is pursuing various projects with large fleets of cruise lines to implement the NOx and Smoke Monitors to comply with the code. Cemtrex's NOx analyzer works in extreme conditions expected in marine applications where excessive vibrations and saline atmosphere would adversely affect the performance of other conventional CEMS.
