AMECS In The News

One recent TAP success story was our investment in the AMECS project,
which was developed right here in Long Beach.

AMECS was recently approved by the California Air Resources Board as a certified alternative to cold ironing, which now allows ships not equipped with shore power to achieve cold ironing compliance.”

State Agency OKs New Pollution-Scrubbing Technology/Barge system
Connects to container ships, reduces emissions

AEG Receives California Air Resource Board Approval for its Advanced Maritime Emission Control System (“AMECS”) Technology – “Game-changer” in emissions control/air quality; reduces port pollution from ships.

POLB says AMECS part of their push to
“An Even Greener Future”

That’s a BIG ship!

Key Benefits

At-Berth Ready

AMECS has been approved by CARB as an approved alternate technology under the At-Berth Regulation.

No Ship Mods

AMECS does not require ANY costly ship modifications.

Multiple Stacks

AMECS Systems can handle multiple exhaust ports at the same time.

Economic Stability

AMECS barge-based systems are independent of unstable and expensive power grid.

Rapid Connection

AMECS can be deployed rapidly upon arrival – in minutes.

Environmental Mitigation

AMECS systems are ideal for providing proven and measurable environmental mitigations.

No Shore Power Infrastructure Needed

Ports without shore power can use AMECS and avoid expensive infrastructure upgrades.

Maximum Fuel Flexibility

AMECS achieves the same emissions reductions regardless of fuel type used (bunker v. low-sulfur)

Operational Flexibility

A shore power investment at a berth provides the capability to handle one ship at just that one specific berth.  An investment in AMECS provides port-wide emission reduction capability.
