Meeting Marine Emissions Challenges

4th April 2022

Protea have been featured in the latest edition of Clean Shipping International, demonstrating how our advanced patented in-situ CEMS solutions are benefiting the global reduction in marine emissions.

Meeting Marine Emissions Challenges

The In-Situ P2000 analyser offers a unique approach to monitoring exhaust emissions monitoring is an ideal solution for the marine industry to enable compliance with IMO regulations. The analyser is fitted directly to the exhaust with the gas monitored within the exhaust duct. An In-Situ technique, unlike extractive systems, does not require sample preparation components. Our P2000 analyser is certified by several Classification Societies as an analyser system suitable to monitor Sulphur Dioxide and Carbon Dioxide and report the SO2:CO2 ratio.

The P2000 was first installed on early Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS) in 2010 and since 2010 several hundred instruments have been installed on several classes of vessels, both on scrubbed and un-scrubbed applications.

In 2018 Protea made a series of product improvements, working with users and marine industry specialist the outcome of the evaluation identified three main areas which would benefit from improvements.

The solutions employed in the latest P2000 are:

  • Patented UV/IR hybrid technology capable of monitoring lower levels of SO2 in a background of high water vapour
  • Capable of monitoring post scrubber (EGCS) with liquid phase water vapour carry over
  • Enhanced support features to enable vessels engineers to identify and rectify performance issues

Protea operates an extensive worldwide network of factory trained sales & service partners strategically located to support the marine industry. We would like to thank and recognise the input from our valued marine engineer users, whose expertise and feedback has gone into improving our products in this demanding market.
