The marine environment offers particular challenges related to salt water and moisture. Leading-edge, multi-stage stainless steel and aluminum filtration and separation systems are required aboard ships to protect gas turbine air intakes to radar-absorbing composite louvers on today’s most advanced vessels. Ship builders require the filtration and separation of salt water aerosols for HVAC and gas turbine engine intakes.
New regulation forces ships to lower the emissions of SO2. Ships travelling in SECA areas has to either run on low sulphur fuel, or install SO2 scrubbers. To measure the SO2 emissions from a ship is not an easy task. OPSIS provides the Port Authorities with a unique measurement principle where the emissions from the ship is measured remotely. Light is passing the emissions and by analyzing the light, concentrations of SO2 can be measured.
The boat, marine engine and accessory industry relies heavily on natural and synthetic rubber for various purposes including engines, propeller hubs, pumps, hoses, seals, O-rings and grommets. Due to the slip resistant nature of rubber, it is relatively difficult to install, remove or manipulate. P-80® Lubricants provide a safe and easy way to improve assembly operations of rubber and soft plastic parts.
ENTACT has successfully completed projects at a wide variety of transportation facilities including ports, rail systems, terminals, and airports.

Coastal erosion is the wearing away of land or the removal of beach or dune sediments by wave action, tidal currents, wave currents, or drainage. Removing sand and other materials from beaches and dunes due to tidal storm surges and construction purposes causes massive beach erosion damages and land loss of seashores, thus destroying the natural heritage of the coast and reducing the vibrancy of the tourism industry. Uprooting vegetation from coastal areas destabilises beaches and clearing sites inland results in...
A Contec oil mist separator (COMS), type 9.200/762, with special frame construction for the lubrication system of the energy supply is being used on the latest cruise ship of the Celebrity Cruises shipping line. The energy requirements of the cruise ship - built by Meyer Werft Papenburg - is covered by four MAN Diesel & Turbo SE, type 14V48/60CR, diesel engines. The Contec oil mist separator, type 9.200/762, with upstream demister and M6 filter cartridge ensures the reduction of particle contamination....
For those who have lived in the arms of the sea, the bond is powerful and eternal. When mariners discharge waste into the sea, it is not carelessness but desperation…a last resort used in the absence of practical alternatives. The waste generated on every ship comes from both people and machinery. People generate garbage and sewage. The various motors and shafts generate used oils, dirty rags and a wide variety of other waste. The mariner has three options for all this waste: (i) store it on board and...
The need to demonstrate environmental responsibility is key for today’s marine and offshore industries. Fuels and exhaust gas emissions are subject to international, regional and national controls and Charterers, as well as the public, demand high standards of performance and reliability.
