Measuring ships SO2 emissions with OPSIS
Last week during the ship's stopover at the harbour of Antwerp, the Envicontrol team has maintained the OPSIS analyser monitoring CO2 and SO2 on the “Nabucco” vessel.
New regulation forces ships to lower their SO2 emissions. Ships travelling in SECA areas have to either run on low sulfur fuel or install SO2 scrubbers.
Measuring the SO2 emissions from a ship is not an easy task. OPSIS provides the harbour authorities with a unique measurement principle where the emissions from the ship is measured remotely.
Light is passing through emissions and by analyzing the light, concentrations of SO2 and other gases can be measured.
