- Dean Kamen, DEKA “When the currently available solutions are labor intensive, time consuming and costly, we’ve got to find a totally new approach – Global organizations work on top-down government to government centralized solutions. A twenty-first century problem needs a twenty-first century solution, a point-of-use, bottom-up response.”

We Work on Waste

The ARCTOS-1 generates all its energy by harvesting and recycling waste energy emitted from a vessel’s  stack. 

Actual, Not Assumed

By sitting on the top of the vessel’s main engine stack and regularly sampling the actual exhaust we know exactly how much CO2 and SO2 are being emitted from a vessel. 

Our sample comes directly from the main engine stack below the point of exit, ensuring accurate regular emission readings.

Zero Carbon, Zero Maintenance & Zero Communication Charges

The ARCTOS-1 transmits emission data over a dedicated secure satcom system outside of the vessels. Meaning that it does not piggy back on the vessel communications system, incurring further costs for the vessel owner. 

There are no user serviceable parts in the device, so no need to train vessel staff or task them with maintaining the ARCTOS-1.

Give Us 15 Minutes, We’ll Give You Your Emissions

It takes on average about fifteen minutes for ship staff to install an ARCTOS-1 sensor on a vessel’s stack. Roughly twelve of those minutes are spent rigging the ladder and safety harness. 

The ARCTOS-1 needs no welding, no cutting and no power or comms lines. It also doesn’t require the vessel to be in dry-dock or off hire, nor for a team of outside “experts” to attend a lengthy install.

Installs in minutes by ship staff with zero maintenance or disruption to a vessel’s operations. 

 

The ARCTOS-1 system seamlessly delivers concise and timely actual emission data.

ARCTOS-1

The ARCTOS-1 is a revolutionary dedicated sensor that’s affixed to the top of a vessel’s exhaust stack and independently monitors and transmits the CO2 and SO2 content of a vessels exhaust. 

ARCTOS-1’s accurate, real-time CO2 and SO2 analysis enables ship owners, managers, charterers, financiers and others to understand at anytime, anywhere in the world their CO2 vessel emissions and whether their vessels have successfully switched fuels and lowered SO2 emissions prior to entering and switched back after exiting (S)ECA Zones. 

Carbon taxes and costs can be better apportioned between parties when they are based on a vessel’s actual instant emission data for every voyage.

Additional benefits include fleet emission comparison in real time, engine load CO2, performance and fuel burn analysis. And we’re only just getting started!
