Baudouin reveal regulation-busting SCR system on advanced engines
June 11, 2018
Not just meeting the challenging emission restrictions of today, but exceeding them.
When it comes to marine engines, the ever-changing map of emission restrictions can be a minefield.
Around the world, engines must comply with the latest IMO and EPA standards. While since 2016, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) demanded further reductions of NOx emissions in some areas of the world. With the introduction of the stringent IMO III and EPA Tier IV norms, the past two years have seen new challenges for the marine world.
With the landscape ever changing, where can you turn for a future-proofed solution? Baudouin have you covered, with an innovative Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system on our range of Advanced Engines.
Our aim with our optimized Selective Catalyst Reduction System has been to exceed the stringent requirements of both IMO III and EPA Tier IV standards, offering Advanced Engines that will deliver not just today, but in the future too.
The Baudouin SCR system is smaller, lighter and more flexible than most solutions available on today’s market, reducing costs and space requirements while maximizing product reliability.
In fact, Baudouin’s Advanced Engines with SCR offer: a cleaner engine without compromising on power, up to 2% reduction in average fuel consumption and up to 25dB noise reduction, all within a compact, modular design. The engines are in the process of approval by most IACS Members.
In addition, one of the biggest advantages of Baudouin’s system is its high degree of installation flexibility: customers can choose to place the tank, pump and cabinet up to 60m away from the catalyst. The system can be installed over the gearbox, over the engine, or in a stand-alone configuration which offers exponential options for installation – for total freedom and flexibility with both new builds and repowering projects.
And if assistance is needed, we are can offer full design support to integrate the system. Our Team can provide advice on mounting, materials, storage, maintenance and more – making it an easy solution to purchase and install.
Looking ahead, we know global regulations will continue to restrict emissions. But one thing is for sure; Baudouin engines have the future-proofing and technology to be the number one choice in the industry.
