“Clean Ballast” – RWO’s proposal for the ballast water treatment

A busy 2010 closed with RWO’s technical seminars, held in Limassol and Athens. The technical seminars carried out in conjunction with Franman and in relation to the “Clean Ballast” - RWO’s proposal for the ballast water treatment - were presented by Mr. Soeren Scheid (Area Sales & Project Managerand) and Mr. Juergen Wiebking (Sales Manager) from RWO.
In Cyprus it was held at the Amathus Beach Hotel in Limassol, on Tuesday 14th December 2010, in association with Institute Of Marine Engineering Science & Technology IMarEST (Cyprus Branch).
In Athens it was held at the Metropolitan Hotel, on Thursday 16th of December 2010.
Both seminars were eagerly received by the participants and generated a plethora of questions and interest in the system which received type approval on September, 07th 2010.
A warm reception followed both seminars.
The CleanBallast system, has been developed over many years by water treatment experts from RWO, a Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies company. The system, consisting of a mechanical filter process and a special disinfection unit, has so far been ordered for more than 40 plants. A number of these plants have been installed and are in successful commercial operation since the end of 2009, making CleanBallast one of the few systems that can demonstrate a longer operational duration in commercial application.

Launch of the medium-speed 6EY22 engine under the themes of "improving life cycle value" and "realizing a harmonious symbiosis with the nature"

Yanmar has launched the medium-speed marine auxiliary engine to be called 6EY22.
Ever since its establishment, Yanmar adopted the fundamental principle of "To save fuel is to serve mankind" and has continuously been involved in the development of innovative products and technologies. This way, Yanmar has contributed to the preservation of the world's energy and natural resources and the realization of a harmonious coexistence with the natural environment.
The 6EY22 engine has been developed based on the fundamental concepts of "improving life cycle value" and "realizing a harmonious symbiosis with the nature". It embodies the qualities of safety, reliability and durability together with competitive operation costs.


Main Features:

6EY22 is compliant with the International Maritime Organization IMO-2 NOx emission regulations scheduled to enter into effect as of January 1, 2011.
6EY22 features a Yanmar proprietary fuel combustion system together with a high pressure Miller-type cycle system that combines a Miller-type camshaft (which enables fast closing of the intake valve) with a high compression ratio turbocharger, allowing the simultaneous reduction of NOx emissions and fuel consumption.
6EY22 employs technologies that control the quantity of impurities in the combustion chamber when Heavy Fuel Oil is used, along with filtration mechanisms, which allow the maintenance interval to be increased.
The configuration of the engine has been improved to secure a larger space for maintenance, as well as easy dismantling and assembly.
The increase in engine output, modularization of the parts and im

proved configuration have resulted in the reduction of the space necessary for engine installation by about 17% compared with previous Yanmar engine models.
The separation of the fuel injection pump from the pump drive, together with the coating of the plunger with a special agent, significantly contribute to the reduction of SOx emissions.
