How to comply with new regulation for exhaust gas

For the last 60 years, IMO has been working on reducing the harmful emissions from shipping. In 1997 the MARPOL Convention was adopted to deal with air pollution. By January 2020, the emission control will be even stricter, when IMO starts enforcing a global limit for sulfur in fuel oil used for marine applications of 0.50% m/m (mass by mass). This will significantly reduce the amount of sulfur oxide emitted from ships to the benefit of people living close to ports and costs.

Big mobile hydraulic solutions have never been so small

When it comes to keeping the world’s largest and most powerful machines running, you’d be surprised how big a difference even the smallest component can make.

The modern world relies on heavy equipment to lay the foundations and infrastructure required to support the trappings of civilization, particularly in the areas of construction, materials handling, forestry, and agriculture. These mechanical beasts of burden collect and harvest building materials, clear and level the ground to provide a stable foundation upon which to build, and perform the heavy lifting necessary to erect even the most complex structures.

New solutions for precise and reliable level measurement

Vital systems such as firefighting and water utilities rely on access to water at any time. Buffer tanks are important components in these systems and serve as local water reservoirs, ensuring that the required amount of water is present when required. 

The water tank is often a ‘black box’, and it might be difficult to determine how much water is available at a given time. Therefore, the water tank is typically equipped with some kind of level measurement device, which can provide precise measurement of the water volume.
