Canopus Marine Solutions AB, CMS, is a company founded by Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. CMS business idea is to provide emission solutions especially adapted to marine vessels.
The people at CMS has delivered solutions to the marine industry for many years in various areas such as:
The core activity of CMS is to offer SCR-systems (Selective Catalytic Reduction) for reduction of NOx (nitrogen oxides) from marine engines. NOx contributes to acid rain and eutrophication and to the formation of ground level ozone which is harmful to human health.
In the SCR-process NOx is reacted stoichiometrically with ammonia or urea as reducing agent to nitrogen and water vapor which occur naturally in the atmosphere. Reduction levels above 90% is possible.
CMS SCR-systems are fully compatible with the required NOx reduction levels proposed by IMO in the so called Tier III scheduled for 1 January 2016.
CMS SCR-systems also meets the even higher NOx reduction levels as required by SMA (Swedish Maritime Administration) from 2005 for attainment of maximum rebates on Swedish fairway dues.
CMS also performs exhaust measurements according to MARPOL 73/78 ANNEX VI, NOx Technical Code guidelines. The results can be used for system diagnostics and basis for further actions. Regardless if you want to benchmark your engines emission baseline or if you want to verify compliance with a specified emission level we can assist you!
Additionally we have solutions for reduced fuel consumption on marine diesel engines. With the latest technology it is now possible to upgrade your old diesel engine fuel system with state-of-the-art Common Rail technology. ROI (Return Of Investment) of less than 12 months possible and available both for HFO and MDO. The Common Rail system is also beneficial for the NOx-emissions where reductions beteween 20 - 50% are possible. In combination with SCR this would reduce urea consumption and make ROI even shorter.
CMS also offer a wide range of marine consultancy services.
