Zenoro, a leading generator and power management company for superyachts, has announced the successful installation of their Zero Soot System® on board MY Nero; a 90-metre classic motor yacht built by Corsair Yachts.
In the recent installation, the two existing 360ekW Caterpillar generator sets were equipped with a customised Zero Soot System® model C4 - an innovative product designed by the brand to keep generators clean and soot-free while reducing numerous other negative effects of diesel engines.
Due to the low exhaust temperatures for these engine types, the best working solution was to install a fuel burner system. The installation ensures VIP guests will experience no more particulates on deck, diesel exhaust residues in swimming water or the unpleasant smell of diesel engines on deck.
Ivo van den Berg, sales manager at Zenoro commented, “One of our engineers visited the yacht in the Caribbean to take measurements and to finalise the design of the soot filter units.
“During start support it was already demonstrated that the exhaust was clean and without soot. We wish the guests, captain and its crew of MY Nero good sailing and enjoy the clean exhaust. Furthermore, we would like to thank Blue Water Management for their trust in our technical capabilities and good collaboration.”
The product range has been designed especially to match with the existing Zenoro generator sets for dry or wet exhaust configurations. Lloyd’s Register approved, the product guarantees clean generator power.
Neil Watson, technical manager for Bluewater Management added, “Bluewater Management would like to express our thanks to the people of NPS Diesel for their collaboration in achieving an outstanding installation of the Zenoro exhaust cleaning system onboard MY Nero. The works were completed against a very tight deadline in the most demanding of conditions.
“The end result is positively amazing, drawing comment as such from all who have seen the more than appreciable improvement, the benefits to guests, crew and the environment are truly self evident.”
