Full speed ahead: it pays to protect the environment


A container ship consumes an average of approx. 50 tons heavy fuel oil for each day at sea, depending on the ship’s size, load, and how it is operated.

The alternative is to invest in exhaust gas cleaning as well as in reliable exhaust gas measuring technology and monitoring systems. It is even an investment where it is possible to make money. Ship engines can cost-effectively be run on heavy fuel oil in emission control areas using modern exhaust gas cleaning and MARSIC ship emissions measuring devices. Operating costs can be significantly reduced and this money invested in environmental protection pays off in as little as 12 to 18 months, according to a study by Germanischer Lloyd.  Continue reading
