Double exhaust system for the Lahringen container ship
The new Lahringen container ship was recently finished at Smits Machinefabriek. The propulsion system chosen for this ship is an ABC engine of the 6DZC type. This engine has a capacity of 1800 HP.
The design of the silencer for this engine requires a certain creativity because this engine cannot be exposed to too much counterpressure and there is only limited space available in the engine room.
Discom B.V. eventually opted for a double exhaust system design consisting of two 12 inch round exhaust silencers, which are to be installed in the stem of the ship.Brinkmann & Niemeijer (B&N) was established in 1828 and is specialised in the construction of generators, pump sets, hydraulic sets, soundproofed casings and containers. B&N is the official importer of, among other brands, Lister-Petter, Daewoo, Mecc Alte and Westerbeke.
B&N supplies everything from standard frames to super-soundproofed designs, depending on the wishes of its customers. B&N products, such as generators and pump sets, can be used in various sectors such as the building trade, pleasure cruising, commercial shipping and the telecom market.
B&N can supply generators and pump sets with noise levels under the currently applicable minimum level based on European legislation. In order to fulfil this requirement, B&N has chosen Discom B.V. as its exhaust silencer supplier as regards both standard exhaust silencers and customer-specific exhaust silencers.
