In close cooperation with Veth Propulsion, yacht builder Amels meet stringent new International Maritime Organization (IMO) emissions regulations with Veth Generator sets in the Dutch test facility.
The successful test under independent Lloyd’s Register class supervision ensures that the Veth Generator sets, provided for the new 188 Amels yacht 57.7m, meet the new IMO Tier III NOx emission limits and reduces the environmental impact.
"Innovation is one of the core values of Veth Propulsion. We are very proud that we are the first manufacturer of generator sets, which has achieved this milestone and we thank Amels for the pleasant cooperation, "says Peter van Helden, Project Manager Veth Propulsion.” For this project we suited our generator sets for heat recovery. This system uses residual energy from the Scania engines to heat potable water, the jacuzzi and increase HVAC reheating efficiency.”
IMO Tier III
Tier III, the next stage of the United Nations’ IMO NOx emissions regulations, applies to vessels operating in North American and the United States Caribbean Sea NOx Emission Control Areas (ECAs). Additional areas are expected to be designated NOx ECAs in the future.
