Japan, Singapore Jointly Tackling EGCS

first_imgzoom Japan’s Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha, the Monohakobi Technology Institute, and ClassNK have teamed up with Singapore-based Nanyang Technological University and Sembcorp Marine Technology Pte. Ltd. for research on an exhaust gas cleaning system (EGCS) intended to be used to control SOx emissions outside emission control areas.This joint research project between Singapore and Japan will be funded by a grant from the Singapore Maritime Institute and carried out with the support of the ClassNK Joint R&D for Industry Program.Unlike the development of EGCSs intended for use inside ECAs, this research will focus on the future need to comply with SOx emissions regulations outside ECAs after 2020 or 2025. The project will aim to promote the development of new technologies for system installation such as simplification and miniaturization, in order to ensure that the system can be installed on a variety of ship types, as well as newbuildings and existing vessels.last_img
