Martek gets $1m-plus orders for emissions systems
Martek Marine (Martek), a United Kingdom-based maritime equipment maker, says it has received more than $1 million in orders for emissions monitoring systems from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (Daewoo) and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), Ship & Bunker reports.
The MariNOx Evolution systems are designed to measure sulfur oxide (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon dioxide (CO2), and other pollutants, allowing shipbuilders to comply with various industry regulations.
"Over 100 of our systems have already been installed and have clocked up millions of operating hours," said Paul Luen, Martek Marine's managing director.
"Yards are building more fuel efficient and less polluting ships and so are turning to our world-class solution to help them achieve this."
Martek introduced the MariNOx Evolution in 2010, and announced the first sales of the product the following March, presenting it as a simpler solution than previous generations of the system.
With a single daisy-chain sample line replacing several separate lines, Martek says it reduces the time, money, and power needed for operation.
