  1. 1. Canada New England Cruise Symposium Tom Dow Vice President - Public Affairs
  2. 2. Technology for Cleaner Air Why Sea Water Scrubbing? • Simple chemistry • Proven application for land-based facilities and as inert gas systems on petroleum & chemical tankers • Substantially minimizes harmful emissions from diesel engines (SOx and particulate matter) • Can be used in port or at sea
  3. 3. Scrubbed air exhaust Krystallon Seawater Scrubber How it Works - in Concept Re-heat Section Reheat Section • Exhaust passes through a Seawater Injectors Sea Water Bath multi-sectioned scrubber. Scrubber is designed to promote thorough Seawater Scrubber Section mixing of gaseous engine emissions and Sea water Scrubber seawater (wash water) Engine Exhaust Section Exhaust System Supports Exhaust System • Wash water is treated to Supports raise pH and separate solids Engine Exhaust Pipe Engine Exhaust Stack from liquids prior to Wastewater Wastewater Wastewater Treatment overboard discharge Wastewater Treatment Solids Ashore Solids Ashore Sea water monitored Treated Liquid Overboard • Solids are collected as a sludge and are properly Seawater Pump for pH and discharged Holland America Line July 2006 discharged ashore
  4. 4. Shore Power Projects EXISTING Juneau Alaska, Seattle & Vancouver PLANNED San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Long Beach Criteria for a Successful Project  Environmentally responsible source.  Availability of an adequate supply of electricity at a reasonable cost.  Frequency of calls by cruise vessels equipped to connect to Shore Power.  Availability of the same dock and pier facility for these vessels for every call.  Adequate dock and uplands space for equipment.  Willing partners including – utility, port and government agencies.
