SEOUL — As a quick and cost-effective method to comply with new mandatory carbon intensity reduction requirements, Samsung Heavy Industries, a major shipbuilder in South Korea, has developed an intelligent, eco-friendly system. environment that effectively controls and manages engine power.
The International Maritime Organization (IMO), a maritime safety agency of the United Nations, has adopted mandatory energy efficiency measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from ships. South Korean shipbuilders are working hard to gain a competitive advantage in environmentally friendly ships.
Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has announced that it will launch its new system called “Samsung Smart Power Limitation (SSPL)” in the second half of 2022 after pilot tests on real ships. “SSPL is an eco-friendly product developed by combining our high-efficiency shipbuilding know-how and smart ship technology,” said Kim Jin-mo, head of SHI’s global press team. , in a statement on March 14.
Kim said SSPL is the best solution for shipping companies to meet regulations without large-scale changes. SSPL used technologies such as motor power limiting (EPL) and shaft power limiting (ShaPoLi). The EPL is a way to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions from existing vessels. ShaPoLi limits the power output of adjustable-pitch propeller shafts and optimizes a vessel’s propulsion and blade design to the maximum.
