Chelsea Technologies announces further significant wash water monitor order from Fuji Electric
Order from Japanese scrubber manufacturer reflective of the acceleration in industry-wide uptake of scrubber technology
14 May, 2019 – Chelsea Technologies, a world leader in the design and manufacture of sensors for the maritime sector and a Sonardyne company, has today announced a significant order from Fuji Electric Company Limited for its Sea Sentry wash water monitoring system for ship exhaust gas cleaning systems.

Accurate monitoring for compliance is a vital prerogative for the international shipping industry as owners and operators come under scrutiny to comply with a wide range of increasingly stringent environmental regulations that cover almost all major aspects of vessel operations. Not meeting compliance standards means that shipowners could face hefty fines, downtime and loss of earnings. Good governance in providing accurate data is vital to demonstrating compliance while maintaining operational efficiency, profitability, and protecting reputation.
