Europort: Partnership announced to tackle medium-speed diesel emissions

Germany’s Kompressorenbau Bannewitz (KBB) and UK-based Eminox have announed a new partnership to collaborate on the reduction of emissions from medium-speed diesel engines, enabling compliance with IMO III, Stage 5 and EPA regulations. The turbocharger manufacturer and emissions control specialist aim to provide a fully integrated emissions control arrangement – from turbo to tailpipe, the companies said in a statement from Europort, where the companies announced the new tie-up yesterday.

Designed for engines with outputs of more than 1MW, the system is suitable both for retrofits and new engines. It is intended for at least 20 years of operation, the partners said, and is future-proofed so that upgrades will ensure compliance with new regulations when they enter force. Replacement parts are available through KBB’s global service network.

The German company’s managing director, Dr Roman Drozdowski, said: “Operators and engine manufacturers understand the need to meet more stringent marine emissions requirements, but achieving compliance has previously been complex and costly. Our combined solution brings together two trusted, experienced suppliers to the industry and is built to fully address all emissions requirements, now and in the future. Together, we look forward to helping customers around the world meet maritime standards while reducing the total cost of ownership of their diesel engines.”
