When ships discharge their bilge water the maximum level of hydrocarbons in the water is regulated by various Environmental Protection Agencies, for example there is a limit of 15ppm enforced by the IMO (International Maritime Organisation) in all international waters. Companies breaching these limits are liable to significant fines. Further regulations have been introduced to control the use of bunker fuels. The Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) of the IMO has approved proposed amendments to the...
In the marine market, ocean-going vessels and fresh water or inner coastal boats require water treatment technologies to meet drinking water, process water and wastewater requirements. Offshore oil and gas operations and ocean-going vessels generate sewage that can contain contaminants which have a detrimental effect on water quality and the overall marine environment. As a result, marine sewage treatment systems are required to lessen the environmental impact. The MEPC.227(64) effluent standards, adopted by the...
PROCO Products designs and manufactures durable, low-maintenance check valves for use specifically in marine industries, such as sewage treatment plants, outfalls, and tidal operations. Marine and aquatic conditions are unique and require equipment that can withstand the turbulence, wear, and corrosion that can occur. PROCO Products provides you with items that can endure even the most rigorous environments. PROCO operates worldwide, and maintains one of the largest product inventories in North America.
From the tranquil waters of the Caribbean to the harsh storms of the arctic, every marine environment presents specific challenges. Thermal Structures marine insulation products are engineered to function perfectly in any marine environment. Thermal Structures insulation products meet SOLAS marine safety requirements.
Fugro EMU Limited has extensive experience in working closely with public sector organisations concerned with the marine and coastal environment. A number of projects have been carried out on behalf of marine regulatory organisations and government departments, including specialised geophysical and ecological surveys, technical reports and provision of expert advice. This work covers a range of topics, including but not limited to:
Process control of a SO2 scrubber on a ship is a challenge due to wet and corrosive gases. In such environment, extractive gas sampling systems require high levels of maintenance in order to operate correctly. OPSIS monitoring system solves this by using an optical, non-contact, cross-duct technique. A light beam is sent across the duct or stack to be measured, and the captured light is sent through an optical fibre cable to an analyser. The analyser measures SO2, CO2 and NOx concentrations using UV and IR...
When ships, submarines and port facilities exposed to the corrosive marine environment need to be repainted, get to clean steel quickly and safely without any messy cleanup using our shrouded power tools! Old paint is removed and packaged in one step using our powerful VAC-PAC HEPA vacuum and deposited directly into 55-gallon drums, safely sealed and ready for transport and disposal when full. No costly containment is required for hazardous jobs, because dust is captured at the surface, before it’s emitted.

In offshore drilling, the safety of both people and the environment is dependent on the constant management of risk. With great public concern and media attention, the safety of offshore drilling for both people and environment, has been widely discussed for many years. Offshore drilling can potentially cause oil spills or disposal of other waste into the ocean, impacting human life and marine life.
Research programmes demand both technology and affordable products to cover studies from rivers to full ocean depth. Valeport have gained significant knowledge through close collaboration with some of the worlds leading institutes. A clear example of this is our CTD sensor fitted to the seal tags of the Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU) of St Andrews University, Scotland as they monitor marine mammal behaviour within their oceanic environment, by obtaining oceanographic quality CTD casts.
