Lysaker, Norway-based TECO 2030 is an engineering and equipment development company focused on reducing shipping's environmental footprint.
Approximate 3% reduction in fuel consumption
The EPOS provides preventive engine damage measures and reduces fuel consumption and environmental impact by approximately 3%. A vessel that consumes 25,000 tons of fuel would be able to reduce emissions by approximately 2,000 tons of CO2, 50 tons of NOx and six tons of particulate matter annually, according to TECO 2030.
The EPOS provides condition monitoring and automatic diagnosis using expert algorithms for large-bore combustion engines and their auxiliaries, with no impact on engine control, TECO 2030 said. The system can act online aboard a vessel as well as offline in the fleet management’s office.
Adding the EPOS will 'contribute to our portfolio of environmental solutions for our clients,' TECO 2030 CEO Tore Enger said, adding that the system will give an additional continuous revenue flow during the development of TECO 2030 marine fuel cells and future funnel.
In November the International Maritime Organization's Marine Environment Protection Committee approved new draft amendments that would make mandatory regulations to cut the carbon intensity of existing ships.
'Together with additional TECO 2030 technologies, we aim to support shipowners to achieve a carbon intensity indicator rating of C [moderate] or better,' Enger said.
