AMELS ahead of the game following successful Tier III emissions test

This week AMELS became the first Dutch yacht builder to meet stringent new International Maritime Organization (IMO) emissions regulations. The successful test under independent Lloyd’s Register class supervision ensures the generator sets of the new 57.70-metre AMELS 188 will comply with IMO Tier III NOx emissions limits. In fact, just as the United Nations climate summit draws to a close, this achievement puts AMELS ahead of the regulations, which apply to vessels with keels laid from 1 January 2016.

“Even though we have already laid the keel for the AMELS 188, we are committed to managing power on board our motor yachts responsibly and efficiently,” explains AMELS Project Manager Romke van der Linde. “We are the first yard in the Netherlands that can apply for IMO Tier III certification for luxury yacht generator sets and we will also be certifying the main engines when they arrive in February.”

Tier III, the next stage of the United Nations’ IMO NOx emissions regulations, applies to vessels operating in North American and the United States Caribbean Sea NOx Emission Control Areas (ECAs). Additional areas are expected to be designated NOx ECAs in the future.

Reduced ecological footprint
AMELS is leading a new generation of engineering best practice to reduce the ecological footprint of its superyachts. In addition to IMO Tier III NOx compliance, the new AMELS 188 currently under construction will feature:

  • • AMELS Hybrid Power switchboard for peak shaving with battery bank
  • • smart generator set configuration, and
  • • AMELS Heat Recovery system.


“Our holistic design approach demonstrates not only a reduced ecological footprint, but also significant operating cost savings,” comments AMELS Design Manager Hans Konings. “It's faster return on investment and lower Total Cost of Ownership. The numbers stack up and that's what our clients want to hear.”

Efficiency and lower cost of ownership
Full list of AMELS 188 design and equipment features to increase efficiency and reduce the ecological footprint, developed together with parent company DAMEN’s extensive Research and Innovation facilities:

  • • AMELS Hybrid Power switchboard with battery bank - peak shaving and managed load shedding
  • • IMO Tier III NOx compliance with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)
  • • Exhaust gas purification system on generators for soot particles
  • • Advanced AMELS Heat Recovery system uses residual energy from the generators to heat potable water, the Jacuzzi and increase HVAC reheating efficiency
  • • Generator set configuration with AMELS Smart Power Management (SPM) system
  • • Thoroughly calculated insulation package for hull and superstructure. Windows have a special heat absorption layer, leading to substantial savings on HVAC power demands
  • • Lower fuel consumption due to highly efficient hull developed with DAMEN Research Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis and tank tested at MARIN institute.
  • • Lloyd's Register Green Passport, rigorously documenting materials for recycling and disposal
  • • Lloyd’s Register Environmental Protection notation, technically prepared for compliance
  • • Energy saving LED lighting for both interiors and exteriors
  • • Waste water treatment plant: effluent quality as per IMO MARPOL MEPC.159 and US Coast Guard approved (type II) for foreign vessels visiting US coastal waters
  • • Bio friendly anti-fouling certified TBT free
