Named TECO 2030 Future Funnel, the unique concept of the marine emissions reduction system can help ships reduce sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), black carbon and particulate matter (PM). In addition, the system will be equipped with carbon capture and storage capabilities.
“The system will be ready for future regulations, and in line with the initial IMO greenhouse gas (GHG) strategy,” said Tore Enger, ceo of TECO 2030.
“The unique Future Funnel solution can provide shipowners with ‘ultra low emission vessel’ (ULEV) notation. Since more than 40% of the fuel mix in 2050 is expected to be fossil fuels, the Future Funnel will be a significant contributor to the IMO GHG goals,” Enger added.
The concept builds on the first generation TECO 2030 Future Funnel with additional developments. Integration of the additional emission reduction modules will start in early 2021.
The system is being developed in close collaboration with TECO 2030’s long-term partner AVL in Austria.
Shyam Thapa, chief development officer of TECO 2030, said: “The concept enables shipowners to receive ULEV and Low Emission Vessel (LEV) class notation even when running on high sulphur fuel oil. This technology will also be an add-on to vessels that already have installed exhaust gas cleaning systems.”
