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.
IPCO Power was available at this years Seatrade Cruise Global in Fort Lauderdale. On the exhibition we have introduced new clients the Fuel Treatment solutions from IPCO Power. Also we spoke to the project managers involved in the scrubber project from Carnival Corp to evaluate the performance of the Water Fuel Emulsion systems.
IPCO Power received a new order for two Water Fuel Emulsion system (FID Injector) for the Seabourn Encore. We are proud with this trust and commitment from Seabourn and Carnival Corp. The Seabourn Encore is a new vessel which was delivered to Seabourn at November 30th 2016. The ship is 40,350 tons and 210 meters long, with a cruising speed of 18.6 knots for 600 guests.
Currently the complete fleet of Seabourn Cruise Lines (Seabourn Quest, Seabourn Odyssey and Seabourn Sojourn) is equipped with IPCO Power's FID Injectors.
IPCO Power’s FID Injector is a 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.
During October 4th and October 10th 2016 several vessels of Princess Cruises were commissioned. Each vessel was installed with IPCO Power's Water Fuel Emulsion System to reduce they emissions as pre treatment for the scrubber system. With the system the vessels will also achieve a 2% fuel saving.
On each vessel the systems the systems were commissioned with the same procedure. After the commissioning the crew involved the necesarry training to operate the system.
The following vessels were commissioned:
Between October 4th and October 6th 2016 the Island Princess
On October 8th 2016 the Royal Princess
On October 9th 2016 the Caribbean Princess
On October 10th 2016 the Coral Princess
The water fuel emulsion systems on board the Carnival Triumph and Carnival Fantasy are both in operation. The systems will assist the on board scrubber systems in reducing the NOx, PM and soot emissions. Also a fuel saving of approximately 2% is achieved.
IPCO Power will be available at the Possidonia in Athens between June 6th and 10th. IPCO Power will be available at the booth of Palmarine (Hellas). Hall 1, Booth No.1.521
We are looking forward to welcome you all!
