For these vessels monitoring equipment is required that will continuously (24/7) monitor for a period of at least two (2) years and three (3) months. Additionally, the participating vessels in the CLINSH project are required to keep using the measurement equipment used during the project for another period of five (5) years. Also during the CLINSH project discontinuous measurement of PM, NOx and O2 have to be performed on the vessels participating in the project. The already remodelled vessels will be measured twice, the vessels that are remodelled during CLINSH are measured three times.
