Azimut|Benetti, world leader in the production of super yachts, is the first to announce an agreement with Mive Eco for the supply of exhaust systems equipped with a Hug Engineering Scr system (opening picture) for the abatement of exhaust gas emissions generated by propulsion engines. Mive Eco, a company active in the production of exhaust gas systems, starting this year will integrate its systems with the Scr systems of Hug Engineering, leader in its market segment and belonging to the Faurecia Group. An agreement with the world’s leading manufacturer of super yachts that is configured as a real innovation for the sector. In fact, the collaboration with two excellences such as Mive Eco and Hug Engineering will allow Azimut|Benetti to guarantee the possibility of purchasing a “low emission” version for its models over 24 meters.
Azimut, Mive Eco, Hug: a common effort towards an ecological yacht
Hug Engineering has developed, tested, and certified a new version of its Selective Catalytic Reduction (Scr), able to adapt to the engine room of the Azimut displacement, semi-displacement and planning yachts, minimizing the overall dimensions.
Mive Eco has integrated this latest generation Scr into its systems by offering Azimut a complete system of all connection ducts, risers, support structures and high-performance insulation in order to guarantee perfect operation, compliance with the values of back pressure, surface temperature on the components and safety of the yacht, despite the limited space available.
The need is to meet the limit level of NOx emissions defined by Imo as Tier III which, starting from 2021, has extended to yachts of less than 500 gross tonnage and longer than 24 meters, and has become a mandatory requirement for sailing in ECAs (Emission Controlled Areas).
Mive Eco had taken up the challenge by involving Hug Engineering, its long-standing partner, which has been supplying its best-inmo Tier III emissions standard came into force for all yachts over 500 gross tonnage. Mive Eco has reworked its exhaust systems and Ccv catalyst (Cordierite Coated Vanadium), which, after 3 years of laboratory and bench tests, has proven to meet the performance targets in the limited space of an engine room. Th
The joint efforts undertaken between 2020 and 2021 by the three companies involved, Azimut, Mive Eco and Hug Engineering, have made it possible to achieve the goal of having a viable solution both technically and commercially, which can be immediately offered to any customer interested in buying an ecological yacht, having full freedom to sail anywhere in the world and being able to count on the full value of the boat at the time of resale.
