Marine Tech Expo Plymouth

CTG are delighted to be exhibiting at the 2nd Marine Tech Expo @Marine_Expo.  The event brings together decision makers involved in the latest marine innovations in blue technology under one roof at the University of Plymouth, 21-22 June 2018.

CTG's Stephanie Lavelle will be demonstrating the FastBallast, a portable ballast water compliance monitor for use with discrete or flow-through samples.  CTG's Sam Kirby will be demonstrating the Act2-based FRRf laboratory system for measuring primary productivity and assessing the health of phytoplankton communities. We look forward to seeing you.

 

CTG exhibiting at Posidonia, Athens

Chelsea Technologies Group is exhibiting at Posidonia 2018  Conference & Exhibition 4-8 June in Athens alongside its representatives in Greece, Helexco Company Ltd. Come and see us in Hall 4, Stand No 4.219.

Our Green Shipping initiatives for monitoring water from Exhaust Gas Scrubber Systems & Ballast Water Treatment Systems to ensure vessels are fully compliant with global regulations will be on show! Our team of experts have developed Sea Sentry and FastBallast to provide the shipping industry with the most accurate monitoring systems for Green Ships. CTG has built up a reputation for globally supplying ship based systems to both military and civil operators over a number of years. These systems have been installed on ferries, research vessels, yachts, tankers, cruise ships and bulk carriers.

 

Maritime industry poll says IMO emissions deal does not go far enough

Maritime industry poll says IMO emissions deal does not go far enough,  Article by Jamey Bergman for Marine Propulsion & Auxiliary Machine

More than half the respondents to a poll taken at the Sulphur Cap 2020 Conference in Amsterdam said the IMO's milestone framework should set emissions reduction targets higher for the industry, while only 10% said it goes too far. CTG’s maritime manager Stephanie Lavelle gave the group a first-hand accounting of MEPC 72 and called on the maritime industry to do more to reduce its emissions.

FastBallast - ballast water monitoring

As the number of ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) on the market nears 100 with a wide array of treatment solutions, ballast water management (BWM) is creating increasing complexity for the shipping industry. Although operating under its own system of ballast water regulation rather than the IMO’s Ballast Water Management Convention, the US Coast Guard (USCG) noted in its Port State Control Annual Report that the number of BWM deficiencies doubled in 2017 compared to 2016, on broadly the same number of inspections.

 

Scrubbers - Owners and operators of closed loop scrubbers are risking non-compliance with emissions regulations due to inaccurate water test readings

Despite surveys reporting that large sections of the maritime industry are unprepared, and calls by some for a delay, the IMO confirmed at its April meeting (MEPC 72) that the implementation of the 0.5% sulphur cap on marine fuel would proceed as scheduled on 1st January 2020. Shipowners and operators now have barely 18 months to decide which route to compliance they must follow to meet MARPOL’s Annex VI regulations.  CTG has direct experience of compliance testing and has an in-depth working knowledge of the high standards demanded by regulators. CTG's Sea Sentry provides a fully autonomous wash water monitoring system for both the water inlet and outlet of wet exhaust gas scrubber systems.
