With a little careful planning, you can adopt some surprisingly effective energy-efficiency measures for your newbuilds, saving a lot of money in the long run, while also greening up operations.
New regulatory guidelines in recent years have progressed innovations in marine technology. Both vessel and equipment manufacturers alike have introduced solutions that answer the call of the IMO and EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index for new ships) to decrease energy consumption and emissions. Additionally, organisations such as the Danish-born Green Ship of the Future (GSF) are promoting the idea that emission-free maritime transport is an achievable near future for the industry, and financially sustainable, through the use of both existing, energy-efficient technology and also R&D into new digital technologies.

DESMI’s upgraded test bed technology is a vast improvement in performance testing. Once a pump is secured on its skid, an auto-cycle fills the pump cylinder with liquid, pushes the air out and automatically tests various points on a pre-determined pump curve. All the while, two viewing monitors provide a continuous and complete readout of the test results.

As cement producers continually seek reduced energy consumption and lower maintenance costs, two emerging trends are changing the face of cement production: the use of grinding stations that support variable feed materials and more widespread use of vertical roller mills (VRMs).

Understanding how and when to contribute with relevant solutions to a customer’s business challenge is a crucial part of meeting cement industry demands today. In an upgrade project for Yanbu Cement Company in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, FLSmidth has demonstrated the ability to support the cement producer’s growth strategy through a combination of technical expertise and financing know-how.
