News: Another global order for Martek


Rotherham-based Martek Marine has announced another international order for their MariNOx product.

The Manvers company is the world leader in safety and environmental monitoring equipment for commercial ships.

Major international tanker operator National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC) has announced plans for reducing the energy consumption of its fleet by 28% and part of its plans include the installation of Martek Marine's MariNOx engine emissions monitoring system.

NITC currently has 42 oceangoing crude oil tankers in operation with a further 22 newbuild vessels due for delivery between 2010 and 2013.

Speaking at the ME Ship Tech 2009 conference in Dubai, Mohammad Souri, Chairman and Managing Director of NITC, said that climate change was the greatest challenge facing the world today.

He went on to advocate promoting broad participation in voluntary measures and that there was a vast potential for improvements in operational efficiency, fleet management, traffic control, cargo handling and energy efficiency.

Mr Souri announced that by installing MariNOx on new vessels, NITC would be able to tune the engines to deliver greater fuel savings.

Because the MariNOx system monitors actual emissions levels it allows the vessels to prove that even after adjusting the engine settings they are still operating within international compliance limits.

Following a trial, NITC Technical Director, Mr Mayahi, commented: "It is the policy of National Iranian Tanker Company to adopt "Best Practice" across our entire operations and be an innovator in embracing leading new advanced technologies.

"NITC have chosen to install the MariNOx NOx/C02 emissions monitoring & engine efficiency optimisation system as a statement of this policy."
