If you look at the present politicization of environmental issues related to the use of low-grade fuel oil (bunker oil) of large ships and the "International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships" established by IMO (International Maritime Organization), you will see that the typical pollutant that emitted from the ship is sulfur oxides (Sox), nitrogen oxide (Nox), carbon dioxide (CO2), and particles.
So, we plan on increasing the intensity of the regulations for such pollutants. Also, since 2016, it has been announced that for the ships that are sailing the ECA (Emission Control Area) of the coastal area in Europe and North American, the output of the sulfur oxides will be limited to 0.1% of MGO (Marine Gas Oil).
In the future, we will face the enforcement of 0.5% MGO standard compulsion from the global sea route after the year 2020. The targeted ships will not only be the existing sailing ships but also will be applied to the new constructed ships. Not only that, but also the existing ships will have to newly install or exchange the LNG FUEL TANK in order to sail.
In order to be ahead of the rapidly changing shipbuilding business, our company is autonomously working on developing a functional PUMP TOWER structure to supply fuel, observe the tank innards control the new building of the ships and the fuel tank, which are installed inside the Cargo Containment and play the role of Loading/ Unloading/ Leveling by the fuel SUPPLY UNITS, which are the major equipments of the LNG fuel ship.
