Norwegian engineering specialist TECO 2030 has signed a new agreement with its Germany-based strategic partner AVL under which the Engine Performance Optimization System (EPOS) for combustion engines will be offered to shipowners worldwide.
The system assists owners with preventive engine damage measures and reduces fuel consumption and environmental impact of approximately 3%. For a vessel which consumes 25,000 tonnes of fuel it will be able to reduce emission of approximately 2,000 tonnes of CO2, 50 tonnes of NOx, and 6 tonnes of PM (Particulate Matters – 10/2.5) per year.
TECO 2030 EPOS provides condition monitoring and automatic diagnosis using expert algorithms for large-bore combustion engines and their auxiliaries. There are no influences on the engine control. TECO 2030 EPOS can act online on-board a vessel as well as offline in the fleet management’s office.
“Expanding our portfolio to meet the environmental challenges in shipping is a constant goal of TECO 2030. Adding the TECO 2030 EPOS system to our portfolio will contribute to our portfolio of environmental solutions for our clients. The system will give us an additional continuous revenue flow during the development of TECO 2030 Marine Fuel Cells and TECO 2030 Future Funnel,” said Tore Enger, CEO of TECO 2030.
