Ships contribute significantly to global air pollution
We help monitor their compliance with environmental regulations
MARPOL Annex VI enforcement
Pioneering the field of maritime emissions monitoring, Explicit enables authorities to monitor compliance with MARPOL Annex VI regulations using airborne surveillance of individual ship emissions. The solution allows for effective enforcement of key environmental regulations at sea.
Based on the SO2/CO2 ratio in the exhaust gas, the system can determine the sulphur content (% m/m) in the fuel being burned using emission factors prescribed by MEPC.
- ECA limit: 0.10 % FSC
- Global cap: 0.50 % FSC
Based on the NOx/CO2 ratio in the exhaust gas and other parameters the system is able to identify possible NOx outliers under IMO’s NOx Technical Code Tier I-III.
- Estimated average NOx in g/kWh
- Tier III NTE threshold compliance
- Tier I-II outlier identification
Using high-sensitive laser spectrometry, Explicit is also able to detect possible methane leakage issues from LNG vessels during at-sea operations.
- CH4 concentration mapping (ppb)
- Stand-alone sensor package
From exhaust gas to emissions result
Combining sensors, software and lab services in one integrated solution, Explicit provides a full service option for monitoring individual ship emissions compliance.
Software tools to guide the pilots in navigating the plume using sensor, weather and AIS data to obtain the best possible sampling position.
Pre-calibrated, easy to replace, units comprising SO2, CO2, NO, NOx, temperature and humidity sensors. Calibrations according toISO standard 6145-1.
Advanced cloud-based central emissions analysis, quality control and data storage services. Access to emissions expert support.
Online reporting with detailed emissions reports on all vessels, maps, and statistics tools for compliance analytics across datasets.
