Scrubber technology firm Alfa Laval has launched the PureSOx connectivity programme to allow allows customers to simplify and remotely monitor scrubber performance.
The programme builds on the new Alfa Laval Remote Emission Monitor (ALREM), a data reporting and storage device that is part of all new PureSOx orders and also available for retrofit.
“Customers want to eliminate hassle and downtime, so that they can spend more time performing,” says Olaf Van Heerikhuizen, Manager Service Gas Systems.
“Connectivity is the key, as we’ve already seen in ALREM projects with major PureSOx customers. The ALREM lays the groundwork for a range of data-driven services that will make compliance – and life on board – much easier.”
The first service to be rolled out in the PureSOx connectivity programme simplifies proof of compliance through graph-based reports and is available on all vessels where the ALREM is installed.
“This is immediate pain relief for customers, whose scrubbers are legally required to log around 50 data signals every three minutes,” says Van Heerikhuizen.
“Instead of interpreting a hundred pages of raw sensor data for just a few days of operation, they get a finished compliance summary that they can hand over directly to authorities.”
If they choose, customers can also review the data for their vessel or fleet via an online portal.
Accessible on a subscription basis for a simple monthly fee, the portal lets them view their vessel’s route and receive a SOx compliance summary for the dates they select.
