Last week IPCO Power checked the Water Fuel Emulsion system on board Royal Princess. The Royal Princess was in port Rotterdam running with scrubber and WFE system. The Water Fuel Emulsion system is installed to reduce PM and Soot. This as pre treatment for the scrubber system. This way the vessel will have the cleanest emissions.
Seabourn Encore's Water Fuel Emulsion system is up and running. With the system the exhaust emissions will be reduced.
IPCO Power's WFE system is called the FID Injector. The FID Injector is an Emissions purification and combustion improvement system designed to create a stable “water in fuel” emulsion. The implementation of emulsified fuel significantly enhances fuel atomization and distribution in the combustion chamber. This results in more effective combustion, lower fuel consumption and a reduction of NOx, HC and PM pollutants, while the engine’s combustion chambers, pistons, exhaust system and lube oil will stay much cleaner.
The FID Injector on board Carnival Valor was commissioned between Houston and Cozumel. The system is in operation since the beginning of this month.
IPCO Power will supply it's Water Fuel Emulsion systems to Grand Princess and Star Princess. The systems will be installed as part of the Exhaust Gas project from Carnival Corp. The FID Injector will be used as pre treatment to reduce PM and soot emissions. The FID Injector will create a combustion improvement which will result in a 2% fuel saving.
