Denmark deploys drone to check ships’ sulphur emissions

The Danish Maritime Authority has begun operating a
rotary-wing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to check emissions from ships in
Danish waters to make sure they comply with the local sulphur limit.

The drone is provided by the European Maritime Safety
Agency (EMSA) and is fitted with a so-called “sniffer” capable of measuring
sulphur emissions. Entering a ship’s exhaust gas plume, the drone can register
the amount of sulphur in the fuel.
The data gathered by the drone will immediately be made
available to Danish authorities, who can follow up if a ship does not comply
with the requirements.
The drone is being regularly deployed in
an area north of the Great Belt, where many large tankers pass when going to
and from the Baltic Sea.
