Starting in January 2021, the first phase of the NOx limits for Pre-existing engines ≥250 kW will begin enforcement with the ECCC Part 2 Stationary Spark Ignition Engines. The government of Canada’s MSAPR legislation has requirements for stationary engines to be tested for Emissions Checks where the units are in Rich Burn configuration with after treatments and looking to extend the testing times between regulated Performance Tests. Emission Checks are less intensive and require less testing time and resources than the Performance Tests. The testing can be completed in 1 hour per unit typically and allows flexibility for scheduling and multiple unit testing and multi-unit sites.
Emission checks can be used for reporting requirements, but also can be used in the early stages of developing a fleet strategy for your company. These simple checks can give the information needed to develop a plan for testing and grouping your machinery. This cost effective testing will provide useful and compliant information to make informed decisions on whether your engines are operating as they were designed or are outside the limits and require some adjustments prior to reporting. Using equipment and processes that are compliant with the MSAPR guidelines allow these results to be repeatable and accurate.
EMS Inc. has been closely involved in the MSAPR development since its inception as BLIERS and has ensured that all of our equipment and calibration process strictly follows these guidelines. This ensures the client that the results are reliable, repeatable and can be confidently reported to the ECCC knowing protocols are followed. This service will provide the client with necessary pre-test arrangement instructions for port and port access. We are able to provide portable lift systems as part of our services and are fully autonomous for power and testing requirements.
