SCHEDULE 1

 

PRINCIPAL COMPONENTS OF THE ENVI-MARINETM SYSTEM

 

PGTM proposes to supply and install an ENVI-MarineTM SO2 scrubbing system which is comprised of the following principal components:

 

Gas Conditioning Chamber (GCC) — This engine exhaust gas inlet chamber uses seawater or recirculated water spray to quench the exhaust gas to approximately 35°C.

 

Scrubber — The scrubber body combines PGTM's patent-pending scrubber head with a volume of packed bed media (PBM) located above the head. Demisters dry the gas prior to exit to atmosphere. The footprint of the scrubber body is variable depending on the configuration of space available. In general, the scrubber is to be positioned at deck level corresponding to the base of the external stack enclosure.

 

Because the scrubber heads are horizontal, the scrubber can be configured into any shape. The marine scrubbers are to be made from stainless steel selected for corrosion and acid resistance. To make the best use of space it is planned to make the bodies rectangular in shape. The footprint required is approximately 1m2 for each MW of main engine propulsion.

 

Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) Tank — The DAF tank receives water from the scrubber and subjects it to DAF treatment, whereby soot, light particulate and oil droplets are separated from the scrubber water by flotation. The oily particulate is then skimmed from the tank and sent to the Oil Water Separator system. The rest of the water, which may still contain some heavier particulate, is directed to the Recirculation Tank.

 

Oil Water Separator (OWS) System — The oily waste skimmed from the DAF tank is mainly comprised of water. The OWS system is designed to concentrate the oily waste for storage in the Oily Waste Tank, and discharge the clean water. The water may be directed to the Recirculation Tank during Open Mode operation or to the Effluent Holding Tank during Closed Mode operation.

 

Oily Waste Tank — The Oily Waste Tank holds the residue from the OWS system for removal at a land based facility.

 

Recirculation Tank — The Recirculation Tank receives water from various sources and aggregates it for recirculation by pumps to the GCC water sprayers, the Hydrocyclone System, and the PBM water distributor. The tank is partitioned so that water from the DAF tank potentially containing heavier particulate is directed to the Hydrocyclone System, and clean water returning from hydrocyclone treatment is sent back to the scrubber. In Open Mode operation, excess water overflows from the Recirculation Tank to the Effluent Holding Tank prior to being discharged to sea.

 

Heat Exchangers — In Closed Mode operation, recirculated scrubber water is cooled using heat exchangers supplied with cold seawater by the seawater pumps.

 

Hydrocyclone System - Banks of hydrocyclones are used for heavier solids separation. Each system draws from a section of the partitioned Recirculation Tank. The underflow containing the particulate is sent to the Disc Centrifuge for further concentration, and the clean overflow water is sent back to the clean water side of the Recirculation Tank.

 

Disc Centrifuge — The Disc Centrifuge subjects the underflow from the hydrocyclones to high inertial forces to concentrate solids to a high degree for storage in the Centrifuge Sludge Tank.

 

Effluent Holding Tank — When at sea the overflow from the Recirculation Tank is held briefly in the Effluent Holding Tank before being discharged to the sea. The Effluent Holding Tank is equipped with an Effluent Monitor for analysis of pH, turbidity and phenanthrene PAH. When in port or when regulations restrict discharge the tank is used to hold the small flow of effluent water from the OWS system during Closed Mode operation for later discharge at sea.

  

 10 

 

 

Caustic Soda Tank — Caustic soda is to be stored on deck in a 20-foot ISO tank configured as a 20-foot bulk container. The tank will act as a reservoir for a small caustic soda surge tank located in the water processing area below decks. Injection pumps to provide alkalinity to the scrubber water during closed mode or hybrid open mode are installed with the surge tank.

 

Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS) — The system includes a Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS) to monitor and record sulphur dioxide emissions on a continuous basis. Access to this information is required by regulatory authorities.

 

Effluent Monitor — A tamper-proof system to monitor the pH, turbidity and phenanthrene PAH of the effluent will be part installed on the Effluent Holding Tank discharge line.

 

Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) — The system will be controlled by a small programmable logic controller (PLC) with a graphic user interface at the operations station or control room. The system will normally operate in automatic mode, but manual control, data logging and trend screens will also be available. Depending on the ship's communication capabilities, the system could also be monitored and controlled remotely. This would allow the shipping company and/or PGTM staff to troubleshoot any problems from land-based offices.

SCHEDULE 2

 

DESCRIPTION OF OPEN AND CLOSED OPERATING MODES

 

Open Mode Operation

 

In open operating mode raw seawater is pumped through the scrubber system. This is considered the standard operating mode for most open sea operations. The seawater is pumped directly to the scrubber water distribution manifolds at the gas conditioning inlet, and the top of the packed bed media. Scrubber water draining from the packed bed media supplies water to the turbulent scrubbing zone above the patented scrubbing head.

 

SO2 is removed and neutralized as the exhaust gases pass counter-current through the water flows. The water drains from the scrubber base to a flotation skimmer tank which uses air and dissolved air flotation to separate unburned carbon and oil from the scrubber water. This material is skimmed from the flotation skimmer tank and directed to the Oil Water Separation (OWS) system, which concentrates the oily waste into a sludge and stores it in a sludge tank.

 

The excess clean water from the OWS system is then combined with the remainder of the water flow from the flotation skimmer tank and directed to the recirculation tank and then to the effluent holding tank. If high turbidity is an issue, then some of the water can be processed through the hydrocyclone system and disc centrifuge to reduce the overall levels. The cleaned water from this operation may be sent to the GC inlet or directly to the effluent storage tank.

 

The water held in the effluent holding tank is monitored continuously and then combined with reaction water for pH balancing prior to being released to the sea. In the event that the monitor measures a high reading for pH, turbidity or phenanthrene PAH, the system will take a series of actions to respond, depending on which parameter is high. High acidity can be remedied by adding NaOH to the seawater and excess turbidity or phenanthrene PAH can be remedied by operating the hydrocyclone system and disc centrifuge. If these steps do not solve the problem, the system can be switched to closed mode operation where there is no discharge to the sea.

 

Closed Mode Operation

 

In closed mode operation the seawater is recirculated through the scrubber in a closed loop. This mode is used for auxiliary generators and boilers while in port, and for main engines in circumstances where regulations require that no effluent can be discharged. Three aspects of the scrubber's operation are altered in this mode. First, the loss of seawater alkalinity is made up by the addition of NaOH to the recirculation tank. Second, heat added through the cooling of the exhaust gas is removed by heat exchangers cooled with raw seawater. Third, the overflow from the flotation skimmer tank, hydrocyclone system and disc centrifuge are returned to the recirculation tank for recirculation to the scrubber.

 

The raw seawater used to cool the scrubbing fluid makes a single pass through both the scrubber distribution and GC heat exchangers before being discharged. This water is not in contact with the engine exhaust gases, so it does not require any treatment.

 

In closed mode the scrubbing fluid takes the same path through the scrubber but at a reduced flow rate since alkalinity can be made up by NaOH addition. The closed system requires continuous cleaning so as to not build up oil or solids, so the flotation skimmer tank, OWS system, hydrocyclone system and disc centrifuge are all fully operational. A certain amount of bleed is necessary to eliminate dissolved solids, and this is taken from the OWS clean water overflow, which is directed to the effluent storage tank. As this is treated effluent, it will meet discharge criteria once the vessel is back in the open ocean where discharge is allowed.

 

Oily sludge is sent to the Oily Waste tank and centrifuge sludge may be sent there as well or to a separate tank. Fresh water is added to the recirculation tank to make up for water lost to evaporation in the scrubber and effluent sent to storage. NaOH is added as required to maintain the pH of the scrubber water.
