It has long been demonstrated and confirmed that atmospheric emissions of nitrogen oxide, sulphur oxide and particulate matter are among the most harmful side effects of large ships in port that must keep their engines running to produce electricity for on-board services.
With installed powers now exceeding several tens of megawatts, in order to ensure the operation of lighting, kitchens and air conditioning, as well as loading and unloading equipment, huge cruise ships, ferries, oil tankers and container ships burn literally tons of fuel, and mostly do so in the immediate vicinity of built-up areas.
In the scenario of ever-growing maritime traffic, this problem inevitably raises widespread concern. The main authorities, from the European Union to the International Maritime Organization, are, therefore, rigorously reviewing the rules that define the limits of sulphur content in fuels and emissions, with the aim of reducing them by as much as 40% by 2030, and accompanying such rules with the recommendation to promote shore power supply to ships.
The “Shore connection” system for the direct shore power supply of docked ships will allow a significant reduction in environmental pollution, and, thanks to the reduced emissions of power plants, in comparison with traditional on-board generators, a reduction of more than 30% in CO₂ emissions, more than 95% in nitrogen oxides and particulate matter and the total elimination of noise pollution.
Today, we are proposing an innovative vision for the future, and the technological capacity of a cutting-edge company.
In anticipation of the implementation of the new directives,Mizar Marine, for several years now, has been developing and manufacturing a series of electrical equipment to be integrated with new and existing units in order to generate heat where it is no longer possible to use fossil fuel combustion.
The cross-flow electric heating units, with individually interchangeable elements and low surface load, are the result of research that has engaged our very best technicians in the application of modern electronic power control technologies, solid state relays (SSR) and Silicon Control Rectifiers (SCR, or Thyristor), managed by software dedicated to reducing energy consumption, with the possibility of managing the equipment remotely via various communication protocols.
The W-EH series heat exchangers and electric boilers are mainly used as boosters or auxiliary heating components for fuel oil, oil, fresh water, steam production and thermal fluids in on-board heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems of passenger and merchant ships, yachts and military units. The flexible and easily modifiable design during the development phase makes them suitable for all those applications where the heating of fluids is required, and in all cases where power supply is the most economically viable factor or the only power source available.
The W-EH series has been designed with modules for electrical power from 15 to 680 kW, and power supply voltages from 400 to 690 V, or other voltages according to specific customer needs.
TheMizar Marine technical department can provide you with all the information you need on the feasibility of installing the equipment and assistance with its installation, thus guaranteeing a timely and efficient after-sales service.
