"We are pleased to announce that the Sea Sentry Exhaust Gas Scrubber Water Monitoring System has achieved DNV GL Statement of Compliance for MEPC.259(68)," said CTG's Maritime Manager, Stephanie Lavelle. "Vigilant testing by DNV GL ensured that Sea Sentry met the requirements for calibration range, drift, accuracy, precision and noise; as well as satisfactorily mitigating for the influence of turbidity, UV absorbance, temperature and salinity. The effectiveness of Sea Sentry’s de-bubbler and the use of the test kit supplied to validate the optical sensors was also demonstrated to meet the requirements of DNV GL."
"We would like to give special thanks to our technical team for the hard work invested in developing such a refined system. We are extremely pleased to be successfully installing our systems on vessels around the world, so that ship owners can confidently monitor the efficacy of their scrubber systems and ensure they operate within regulations."
Sea Sentry is a turnkey solution which measures PAH, Turbidity, pH and temperature, as required by MEPC.259(68). It has a de-bubbler and corrects for the effects of turbidity, UV absorbance and temperature. A touch screen display provides a flexible user interface and data is relayed to a main control system via an Ethernet connection. Sea Sentry is ideal for both new ship builds (as in the case of a recent installation on a bulk carrier) and retrofit installations.
Why is Sea Sentry the system of choice for wash water monitoring? To comply with International Maritime Organization (IMO) environmental regulations, global shipping is required to meet specific exhaust gas emission levels. One method of doing this is to clean emissions before release using an exhaust gas scrubber system. All varieties of wet scrubber systems use wash water which must be monitored at all times to avoid discharges that may exceed regulations and damage the environment. The CTG Sea Sentry confirms that the wash water is within acceptable limits and thus protects the environment from high levels of contamination in exhaust-gas scrubber wash water discharge. The CTG Sea Sentry is a proven wash water monitoring system which monitors both the sensor inlet and outlet of wet exhaust gas scrubber systems.
Fully Compliant Solution: The Sea Sentry has been tested in accordance with the requirements of Resolution MEPC. 259(68) in respect of washwater monitoring and received a Statement of Compliance from DNV GL.
