Technology sought for noise reduction for ship engine exhaust

A multinational shipping enterprise with a registered base in Scotland (UK) is seeking novel, cost-effective approaches to reduce low frequency noise (10Hz) created by the exhaust of diesel engines. The Scottish company is looking for partnerships via a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a technical cooperation agreement. The company is especially interested in technologies that are near to market.

A Multinational shipping enterprise with a registered base in Scotland (UK) is seeking solutions that can be applied to cargo and passenger ships that travel in all of the world's oceans. 

Currently, exhaust from 8-cylinder diesel engines creates a low frequency noise in the funnel of our passenger ferries that can cause building vibrations and unpleasant pressure on the ears as ships approach the shore to dock at the pier.  During inclement weather, these docking maneuvers take longer to complete and complaints from nearby residents increase.

The client is looking to partner with companies that have a solution or a potential solution that is near to market and is therefore looking for partnerships via a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a technical cooperation agreement. The company is willing to consider technology from other end-application sectors that is capable of addressing the problem set out here. The client is flexible in the approach to required development. Some budget may be made available for development and this could include being actively involved in the development of a solution, technical overview of the end application and provision of testing facilities.
