Danish exhaust manufacturer Exilator prepares to deliver three units of its ExiLencerTM to be installed on a 60m new build project.
Danish exhaust manufacturer Exilator has received an order to deliver three systems to be installed on a 60m yacht in build. The name of the project and the shipyard building the vessel have not been disclosed.
CEO and partner Jesper Steenbuch says: ”We are very happy about the order, as we were competing against other more well established competitors. Based on the comments from the customer, then the choice was seemingly very easy.”
The company is to deliver three units of its ExiLencerTM. The manufacturer claims its product is more compact, simpler to install and maintain, hence total cost of ownership is lower than other exhaust purification system on the market. On top of that, Steenbuch says, other benefits include elimination of pollution and reduction of the noise.
According to the manufacturer, the ExiLencer features a built-in silencer to reduce the low frequency noise, a unique coating of the durable filter material, and a NO2 catalyst, which combined delivers the following benefits:
- 98 % reduction of particles (black smoke)
- 99 % reduction of CO,
- Noise level reduced by up to 35 dB
- No need for pre-burners nor piping.
- The unit delivers a positive NOx balance, easy installation and maintenance.
“The cleaning of filters, is only required after 5.000 hours of operation, and filter replacement only after 50.000 hours, which is normally more than the lifetime of yacht,” the company claims in a statement.
Steenbuch also told SB that the company’s solution has already won Green Ship Technology award and was in the final for Lloyds List Maritime Engineering Award.
“Exilator’s orderbook now includes orders from several countries, different vessel types and sizes, and we are being approached by shipyards, direct customers, agents and distributors from around the world. 2017 will be another busy year for us,” Steenbuch concludes.
