CEMcaptain emissions monitoring system launched by ABB

ABB has introduced a new emissions monitoring system called CEMcaptain, designed to help shipping companies in managing compliance with the IMO emissions regulations that came into force in 2020.

CEMcaptain is a multi-component analyser system that provides real-time emissions measurement data, integrating analyser modules and sample handling components in a standalone cabinet.

The unit simultaneously and continuously measures sulphur dioxide (SO2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) in line with regulation requirements. Each analyser has two separate gas paths to allow for continuous CO2/SO2 measurement of separate streams, with up to four different components per analyser module.

Fault reporting, diagnosis and repair are delivered via on-site and remote digital services, with dynamic QR codes integrated into the CEMcaptain system display panel. All relevant diagnostic information can be collected from the analyser via a scanned code and transferred to ABB support, allowing maritime instrumentation technicians to get immediate guidance on appropriate maintenance.

“Our solutions are driving the evolution of sustainable shipping, paving the way to a zero-emission marine industry. ABB has more than 60,000 Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) installed in over 100 countries that help monitor our environment,” said Stephen Gibbons, ABB’s Head of Product Management in Continuous Gas Analysers.

“We draw on 60 years of experience in emissions monitoring to provide this support in concrete terms. CEMcaptain has been combined with innovations in on-site and remote digital services. The result is a solution that provides the industry with a digital toolbox that increases regulatory compliance and operational efficiency.”
