In 2016, the IMO announced that the effective date for the reduction of marine fuel sulphur will be 2020. Under the new global cap, ships will have to use marine fuels with a sulphur content of no more than 0.5%S against the current
limit of 3.5%S in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
What Does IMO 2020 Mean for Ship Owners?
Ship owners will soon need to decide if they want to continue using high sulphur fuel oil, in conjunction with scrubbers or exhaust gas cleaning systems; or switch to low sulphur fuel options, including distillates; or virtually sulphur-free LNG fuel.
The solution that works best for types of ships :
Hydrogen Fuel Enhancement is the process of using electrolysis to split water into hydrogen and oxygen gases, these gases are then introduced into the combustion chamber. It has the effect of improving the efficiency of the entire
combustion process, resulting in much more fuel being burned instead of being exhausted as unwanted pollution. We have recorded as much as an 80% reduction in PM (particulate matter) once the engine has been purged of existing
soot build up. The increase in efficiency has also resulted in a reduction in fuel consumption of 10% – 30% depending upon the application. Moreover, the cleaner and more efficient engine will have lower maintenance costs. The
Hydrogen fuel Enhancement Technology we use has been third party tested by :Danish Maritime Authority Report from DGS on Danish RoPax
- Diesel fuel burn is more efficient due to “hydrogen assisted” burn.
- Maintains all OEM engine warranties.
- Fuel consumption reduced by 10-30%
- Increases Engine Horsepower & Torque.
- Low cost to maintain the product, just add
- Longer Engine & Filter life
- Annual Reduction in Maintenance cost
- Payback in less than a year depending on
- Decease harmful exhaust emissions giving
you cleaner breathable air.
- Significant reduction of greenhouse gas
emissions. (CO, CO2,
- High sulphur fuel can still be used with this
- hydrogen enhancement.
One Simple Step to Installation
The only modification required, to any existing internal combustion engine, is a small hole in the air intake manifold, which allows the flow of hydrogen gas into the combustion chamber.
How does the product work It’s a process of electrolysis separating water, hydrogen and oxygen by
applying an electric current. When hydrogen is introduced into the combustion chamber of any internal combustion engine, the hydrogen enhances the air and fuel mix leading to an almost complete burn of the fuel. This causes a
significant decrease in the input of GHGs and a reduction in fuel consumption.
