Blue Ocean Solutions introduces BOS Engine Performance Software as an add-on to its Emulsified Fuel System

Blue Ocean Solutions has introduced Engine Performance Software to provide ship operators with a holistic insight into the operating condition and efficiency of the ship’s engine. The software is an important extension of the Emulsified Fuel System to verify the fuel savings gained from the system. It also evaluates the engine condition against factory test […]

Solution to help with compliance

Analysis confirms that installing a BOS Emulsified Fuel System at the same time as a Selective Catalytic Reduction system delivers substantial cost savings As BOS EFS can reduce NOx emission down to 20% at source (i.e during combustion), the size of SCR can be smaller. At the same time, SCR needs to produce less urea […]

CDO Analysis confirms: BOS Emulsified Fuel System improves condition of the engine

  When it comes to water-in-fuel emulsions, the concern over condition of the engine is often raised. Therefore, Blue Ocean Solutions engaged Flame Marine to conduct Cylinder Drain Oil analysis before and after the use of BOS Emulsified Fuel System. Flame Diagnostic provided a detailed diagnosis of wear, combustion, lubrication feed rate and performance. BOS […]

Mandatory requirements for ships to record and report their fuel consumption

The International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) has agreed on mandatory requirements for ships to record and report their fuel consumption. Shipping is the cleanest form of transport. However, there are 50,000 ships in the world and according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), around 80 per cent […]

A repeat order from Diamond S Shipping for BOS EFS

With consistent results, verified by independent classification societies on ships and engine manufacturer on test bed, Keppel Offshore & Marine’s subsidiary Blue Ocean Solutions (BOS) has proved that emulsified fuel can bring significant fuel savings adding to the well established NOx reduction, if done correctly. The patented BOS Emulsified Fuel System (EFS) improves combustion efficiency […]
