Marine Emulsion Fuel Systems
Marine Emulsion Combustion Unit (ECU)
Nonox Ltd., manufacturer and licensor of the Nonox emulsion combustion unit (ECU) real-time water-in-oil emulsion fuel system has implemented Nonox emulsion combustion units (ECU) aboard, the Wallenius Wilhelmsen M/V Tortugas and M/V Taiko.
The main engine is a MAN B&W 8L70MC (MK5) marine diesel with constant pressure supercharging and maximum output of 28480 BHP/20960 KW. For the electrical power supply there are 5, 4-stroke MAN B&W Holeby Diesels units, 2 each 1710 BHP, 3 each 2280 BHP.
Having selected ships that are very well equipped for accurate monitoring, further significant emissions and fuel efficiencies are being discovered and achieved by the integration of Nonox Emulsion Fuel Systems which produce and consume a water-in-oil emulsion fuel in real-time affecting a cleaner more efficient burn.
"Since first installing the ECU on board Tortugas we are seeing positive trends with regards to reduced fuel oil consumption, cleaner inside engine, economizer and boiler and reduced NOx-emissions."
M/V Tortugas, M/V Taiko and M/V Tarago are owned by Wilh. Wilhelmsen and operated by a subsidiary, Wilhelmsen Line Car Carriers Ltd. in Southampton UK.
