As explained, TECO 2030 Future Funnel is in line with the initial IMO GHG strategy, allowing ships to reduce sulphur oxides, nitrogen oxides, black carbon and particulate matter emissions.
In addition, the system will feature carbon capture and storage capabilities, while it can also provide shipowners with “Ultra Low Emission Vessel” (ULEV) notation.
Since more than 40 percent 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,
…explained Tore Enger, CEO of TECO 2030 ASA.
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 concept enables shipowners to receive Ultra Low Emission Vessel (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,
…said TECO 2030’s Chief Development Officer, Mr. Shyam Thapa.
The system will result from collaboration with TECO 2030’s partner AVL in Austria.
