ARGO NAVIS ENGINEERS LTD. completed an Exhaust Gas Cleaning System (EGCS) feasibility study for a 158000 DWT crude oil tanker. The integration design concerns an Alfa Laval PureSOx Open-Loop U-type system which is to be installed in a dedicated deckhouse forming the continuation of the existing funnel and casing structure.
Two types of analyses were conducted:
- Static linear for the determination of available strength reserves
- Modal (free vibration) for the determination of potential resonance with excitation sources originating from the main engine and the propeller.
The Feasibility Study was approved by DNV GL.
