TECO 2030 announced that the TECO 2030 Future Funnel has been further developed and now offers hybrid and closed loop alongside the already existing open loop.
he closed loop system is primarily used for vessels operating in areas where discharges overboard are prohibited, and the alkalinity of the seawater is low. The exhaust gases are washed on board, and substances are collected in a separate tank on board, which is emptied into ports for appropriate further treatment.
The hybrid system can be used as either an open or closed loop, depending on the requirements and rules of the geographical location. This system gives the operator a more flexible control of emissions and environmental impact.
We are proud to expand our emissions reduction technologies to further improve our portfolio to meet our customers’ needs. TECO 2030 Future Funnel is now ready for all geographical regulations globally
commented Tore Enger, CEO of TECO 2030 ASA.
What is more, recently TECO 2030 completed the feasibility and concept study for Marine Fuel Cells together with its partner AVL List GmbH.
The company is now moving over to the next phase of Maritime Fuel Cell development, according to its Fuel Cell Development Roadmap.
According to TECO 2030, fuel cells and hydrogen are the most efficient ways to produce electric power and store energy as fuel.
TECO 2030 claims that is modular fuel cell system for heavy duty marine applications can enable ships to become emissions-free by switching from fossil fuels to hydrogen.
