As the superyacht industry gathers for Monaco Yacht Show 2015, one of the world’s leading marine exhaust system companies Halyard and Emigreen B.V, the preeminent marine exhaust after-treatment specialist, announce a new collaboration around Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Diesel Particulate Filtration (DPF).
Combining their unrivalled expertise will enable both companies to strengthen the design and delivery of integrated exhaust systems solutions and after treatment solutions. It will also ensure that the environmental impact of the pollutants associated with yachting is minimised whilst complying with increasingly stringent regulations.
The announcement comes ahead of changes to the International Maritime Organisation TIER III emission regulations on nitrogen oxide (NOx). The regulations affecting superyachts built after 1 January 2016 that are longer than 24m and have engines of more than 130Kwh visiting NOx control areas, currently the US Coast and Caribbean Islands.
Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. The SCR process is the most effective and widely accepted technology to reduce NOx. The process uses a reagent, ammonia, mixed with the exhaust gasses and guided through a catalyst. The design and appropriate control of SCR systems results in inert nitrogen and water vapour.
Commenting on the collaboration, Richard Summers, Managing Director from Halyard says, “We are delighted to be working closely with Emigreen B.V. We will be sharing our extensive expertise and experience to deliver high quality bespoke exhaust and after treatment solutions to meet the design requirements of superyacht builders, boatyards and naval architects and ensure compliance with emission regulations.”
Niko Dalpis, Managing Director from Emigreen B.V continues, “Backed by the years long market experience of Halyard, the cooperation offers us the opportunity to concentrate at that which we are good in – which is applying latest state of the art technology to produce top of the bill innovative exhaust after treatment solution.”
Emigreen B.V. designs, supplies and supports products and services exclusively related to the exhaust emission control of industrial combustion engines.
Halyard is the only company in the world able to manufacture an entire exhaust solution from “turbo to transom” in-house. Service and support starts from the initial designs through to assistance during manufacture and installation, right through to final sea trials.
