Taking into account all the above features, there are no studies of the NOx emission engines caused by different working regimes of power because engine manufacturers have not measured these emissions across the range of operating power, but usually we only report the pollution produced by its engines to a maximum continuous power.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.07.03.15}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Port Auxiliary Vessels, NOx Pollution, NOx Emission, Mechanical Engineering, Engine Characteristics, Emission Factor, Emission Reduction, Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems} }
