The big challenge: Balancing NOx & CO2 emissions with fuel consumption and engine optimization.
Proper operation of a diesel engine means the minimum specific fuel consumption at each load, increased service life of mechanical parts and increased power generation, which is very important.
Furthermore, a properly adjusted and in good condition engine implies limited emissions of gaseous pollutants (NO, NO2, CO, CO2, etc.) that in turn ensures compliance with MARPOL ANNEX VI.
The big challenge for all diesel engines, it is to have a fair balance between the environmental protection requirements and cost efective operation. It is therefore necessary to use whatever technological advantage is available.
Reliable recording of all engine and environmental data relevant for a MARPOL-conformity NOx measurement (in g/kWh) was up to now almost impossible, or very complicated, and as a result very costly.
But not anymore.The solution is available and with more features than you can imagine.
