It is nice to see that IPCO Power BV is mentioned in the official press release:
Holland America Line also received the Technology Innovator award for investing in its Seattle-based fleet that has resulted in year-over-year reductions in fuel use and resultant greenhouse gases. Port of Seattle also cited the cruise line’s installation of IPCO Power Fuel Treatment systems that are designed to enhance combustion, lower emissions, improve fuel economy, extend engine overhaul intervals and lower overall operating costs.

Between April 22th in Barcelona and April 24th Nice the water in fuel emulsion systems on board HAL Nieuw Amsterdam were commissioned. The systems installed as pre treatment for the scrubber system on board.
Last week the water in fuel systems on both Carnival Paradise ad HAL Zuiderdam were commissioned. The Carnival Paradise was commissioned between Tampa and Grand Cayman and the HAL Zuiderdam between Rome and Malta.
Last week the WFE systems on board Costa Deliziosa and Favolosa have been commissioned with Buenos Aires in Argentina. Both systems are installed as pre treatment for the newly installed scrubber systems.
With the WFE systems the PM and soot emissions will be reduced with 70 to 90%. Also there is a 2% fuel saving.
The water in fuel system (FID Injector) on board Costa Fascinosa is up and running. The commissioning took place between Tangers and Valencia. In Tangers the vessel was in port together with the Rotterdam from Holland America Line. The Rotterdam was the first installed vessel from IPCO Power's water in fuel systems.
The FID Injector on board P&O Aurora is commissioned in Amsterdam. The FID Injector is installed to reduce the fuel consumption and to assist the newly installed scrubber system in reducing the emissions.
Mid December, 2014 A/S Shell Denmark called IPCO Power for assistance in treating 35.000 m3 of highly H2S polluted sea water. During the loading of this polluted sea water into a sea going vessel the concentration of H2S and mercaptanes was so extremely high that conventional means to treat the released vapor coming out of the vessel where not sufficient.
With the deployment of the ECOSCRUB, scrubber solution, IPCO Power and the Nature Group managed the treat the vapor in a combined effort and reduced the concentration with more that 98%. The vessel was loaded at an average pump rate of 800 m3/hour. The operation was performed within 48 hours.
The ECOSCUB scrubber solution is the best available technique to cope with these type of air pollutions mainly caused during the transloading of Heavy Fuel Oil, bitumen and other products where high air emission of H2S and sulphur components are released or as in this particular case, polluted sea water.
The IPCO Power team wishes everyone happy holidays and all the best for 2015! This year we decided to make a special contribution to the Reddingsbrigade Dordrecht (the local voluntary life guards in Dordrecht)
