Fuel Technology

  • As shipping lines and suppliers scramble to meet existing and future pollution regulations, part of MARPOL, which sets limits on NOx and SOx emissions.  Nano Fossil Fuels Technology has a simple solution for these emission problems - the Nano Fuels Combustion Catalyst. When added to Bunker fuels the catalyst reduces the viscosity of the fuel permitting more efficient burning. This results in two benefits: reduces smoke emissions by up to 75% and reduces fuel consumption by almost 13%.

Beyond this, the LNG powered towboat design capitalizes on Wärtsilä’s proven dual fuel technology, but is not necessarily wedded to it.

In 2015 it’s multi-fuel technology, heavy fuel oil and marine gas oil,” he says. Eventually it becomes known that Wartsila’s new No. 31 engine for offshore and oceangoing vessels
