The Shaft Power Limitation (ShaPoLi) system, crafted to aid maximize vessel engine outcome in advance of approaching EEXI (Energy Efficiency Existing ship) laws, has actually gotten authorization from category culture Lloyd’s Register (LR).
Developed by SELMA along with Tankers Technical Department of Neda Maritime Agency Co Ltd, the system will certainly be fitted aboard the Neda- run 319,000 dwt huge unrefined provider (VLCC) Aragona, allowing complete use readily available engine outcome under approaching EEXI law.
The system makes use of the prop shaft torque as well as rotational rate sensing units to determine as well as instantly restrict the industrialized power to follow the LR accepted Technical File, while supplying recording as well as emergency situation bypassing centers, in accordance with MEPC335 law.
Guidelines for the growth of a shaft/engine power constraint were taken on by MEPC335 in June 2021 as component of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) greenhouse gas discharges decrease short-term approach.
“With EEXI regulation at the doorstep, there is an increasing challenge around efficiency, and we are proud to offer our expertise, ensuring that our clients will best address the upcoming requirements safely and efficiently,” stated Haris Fanaradellis, South Europe Technical Support Office Manager for Lloyd’s Register.
“The SELMA ShaPoLi system is a pioneering intelligent control system that provides a robust and viable method of controlling the developed shaft power, seamlessly interfaced with the vessel’s existing control, while simultaneously maintaining original safety features. The system contributes to fuel consumption improvement and in turn to CO2 emissions reduction,” statedDr Panos Deligiannis, Tanker Technical Director at Neda Maritime Agency Co Ltd.
