How to reach this objective?
Within CLINSH 30 ships are selected and will be adjusted. The performance of various emission reduction techniques and alternative fuels will be tested on these ships. Before and after the adjustments the emissions of the ships (NOx and PM) will be monitored in real life conditions. Also the chances for further introduction of onshore power supply will be investigated.
The importance of the results
The results of the monitoring activities are collected in a database. The results in this database provide a tool for local, regional, national and European governments for (new) policies on the greening of waterways. Also, these data provide skippers with more insight into the most cost effective environmental measures for their ship.
