SICK Maritime Suite: More transparency on the world’s oceans

Benefit from the experience of a leading manufacturer in maritime emission monitoring! Using the digital services in the SICK Maritime Suite such as the MARtracker, the live data of the emission monitoring device of the ship can be combined with other data such as the position of the ship as well as ECA and local emission regulations. The result: Tailored status messages, more transparency over your entire fleet, and an optimization of operating costs.
Maritime emission measurement from a single source Tried-and-proven emission measurement technology, a global service network, and innovative digital solutions: With SICK, you have a competent partner with longstanding experience in maritime emission measurement on board.
Tailored to your requirements Overview of the conformity status of the ship or comparison of the performance of the scrubbers: Individual digital services in the SICK Maritime Suite can be selected as needed.

With the SICK Maritime Suite you gain more transparency over your fleet – tailored and in real time

MARtracker: Monitor adherence to emission limit values in real time

The MARtracker digital service is a cloud-based, digital solution for visualizing live data from the ship emission monitoring device. The MARtracker combines this measurement data with information about the ship position and ECA and local emission regulations. This gives ship operators and fleet managers full transparency about their fleet compliance status, current and historical emissions data, equipment status, and information about scrubber efficiency.

Features and dashboards of the MARtracker digital service:

Overview of the entire fleet: Tailored: in MARtracker, individual users (like a fleet manager or head engineer) can be created and information relevant to each person visually displayed. This enables fleet managers to gain transparency over the conformity status of their entire fleet, anytime and anywhere.
Detailed view of a ship MARtracker combines the measurement data of the scrubber with the position data and the route prediction data of the ship. A notification occurs when approaching or leaving ECA zones. This enables fleet managers to monitor compliance with the applicable regulations and avoid fines.
Detailed view of the scrubbers:

MARtracker visualizes the performance data of the scrubbers – regardless of manufacturer. This allows the performance of the individual scrubbers to be compared. You can recognize immediately if one of the scrubbers is operating ineffectively – for more cost efficiency.

Automatic notification when defined events occur Make the right decisions quickly: Individual events - like a status change from “conform” to “non conform” or the operational status of the emission monitoring device - are listed in MARtracker. Automatic notification of selected events can then occur.
Automated reporting Save time and resources: MARtracker automatically creates reports for the port authorities – in accordance with the applicable standards and regulations.
Chronology of relevant emission values MARtracker delivers not only current emission values. The change in relevant emission values over time is displayed in a histogram.

MARpems: enables compliance with emission regulations, even in the event of failure of continuous emission measurement

Intelligence through trained machine learning models: The MARpems digital service is an on-premise solution that calculates emission values based on process parameters. Values for seawater flow, engine power or exhaust gas temperature are used here. Should continuous emission measurement fail, MARpems enables temporary emission compliance to ensure the requirements of the IMO directive are met. MARpems also ensures more efficiency during scrubber operation: The continuous monitoring and analysis of the individual process parameters makes operation more efficient and reduces manual work. Additional emissions can also be avoided.

Compliance, process reliability, greater efficiency:

Predictive emission monitoring MARpems monitors continuously: The machine learning model is trained with the existing operating values of the scrubber. And MARpems monitors itself: The accuracy of the output values is continuously validated and compliance with the IMO directives as per MEPC.1/Circ883/Rev.1 is checked at the same time. The result is an intelligent predictive emission monitoring system (PEMS) for the maritime world.
Compliance even if an individual sensor fails If continuous emission measurement fails, MARpems provides clarity: MARpems calculates the emission values based on the recorded process parameters. The software also helps the ship operator comply with the recommended measures in the event of failure of the continuous emission measurement in accordance with IMO directive as per MEPC.1/Circ883/Rev.1.
Recognized by flag states MARpems is tested by classification society DNV based on the “Statement of product capability.” In addition, MARpems is a system recognized by flag states that ensures temporary emissions compliance in the event of prolonged failures.
Increased efficiency during scrubber operation MARpems helps optimize operating costs: A CEMS running smoothly contributes to automatic process control of the scrubber and thus efficient use of wash water and chemicals. Thanks to MARpems, emission values can be continuously supplied even if a CEMS does not produce any measured values. This means the scrubber does not have to be controlled manually, which requires a high level of staff resources.
Overview of the entire fleet: With MARpems, you increase the availability of your ship emission data. You also have all the information you need to make the right decisions.
Automated reporting Save time and resources: MARpems enables the automatic generation of reports for port authorities in line with applicable standards and regulations.
