Fuels & emissions

Driving sustainability : overcoming barriers for technology uptake : finding finance can often prove an obstacle to efficiency -enhancing measures; Stephanie Draper, chair and co-founder, Sustainable Shipping Initiative, explains how innovative financing and transparency can inspire technological progression to drive operation efficiencies, reduce fuel costs and lower emissions -- Monitor and optimise for greater fuel cost savings : with success or failure increasingly dependent upon it, key players in the maritime industry are working together to develop operational efficiency software with enhanced precision measuring capability : Esa Hentinnen, vice president at NAPA for operations, reports on the sea trials of one such product : ClassNK-NAPA Green -- Exhaust gas cleaning--reducing sulphur oxide emissions : with tighter SOx regulations in ECAs coming into effect in 2015, shipowners and operators must decide within the next few months on how to reduce SOx emissions; Leonardo Sonzio, director retrofit, Wartsila Ship Power environmental solutions, explains that there are two main options, exhaust gas cleaning systems or switching to lower sulphur content fuel -- Beating cold corrosion, the downside of fuel-efficient engines : Dr Steve Dye (business development and marketing manager) or Parker Kittiwake explains why frequent condition monitoring is the most effective measure in combatting the recent cold corrosion phenomenon -- Improving ship operating efficiency : quantifying true ship performance is a very complex, if not impossible task, says Dr Henry Chen, Boeing Associate Technology Fellow, currently Chief naval Architect at Jeppesen Marine -- Marine lubricants' transition from commodity to specialty : as OEMs place increasing emphasis on the role of cylinder lubricants in combating the costly issue of cold corrosion, lubricants are steadily being viewed as more than simply a commodity product, argues Serge del Farra, of Total Lubmarine -- Emulsion trial could spark new interest : the idea of using emulsified fuel has been around for decades, and a recent trial has again demonstrated that efficiency gains are possible alongside the known emission reductions, writes Wendy Laursen.
