Faroe Maritime Technic (FMT)

Faroe Maritime Technic (FMT)

FMT was founded in 2008 by chief engineer Kaj Joensen, that in his many years at sea experienced significant challenges with contaminated bilge water and waste oils. A major problem was getting the OWS. Kaj developed a solution to solve the problem, and this invention resulted in the patented Oil Conveyor, which is now installed on board several ships around the world. As a result of good references, AP Moeller Maersk asked for a solution, that was able to handle the large amount of water in various sludge types. R&D resulted in the Sludge Dewatering Separator, SDS, that boils water out of the sludge in a very environmental friendly way. Both APM and other shipowners have acquired different SDS-systems from FMT. SDS gives the owners an average sludge reduction of 60-70%. At the moment work is going on to refine the SDS-system into the socalled SDE, Sludge Dewatering Evaporator.
