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.
Many global shipyards and shipping companies rely on STS level sensors for the monitoring of water, waste water and fuel tanks - particularly in ballast tank applications. STS is a major supplier in this segment due to the high reliability of its sensors and the ability to manufacture them from titanium.
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.
Information on wind conditions is essential for the operation of a port. Approaching vessels need to be able to obtain accurate and reliable information on wind conditions on approach of the port. We provide this data via an internet link so the vessel can decide the approach on the basis of actual data obtained quayside.
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.
ENTACT has successfully completed projects at a wide variety of transportation facilities including ports, rail systems, terminals, and airports. These projects typically require elaborate traffic control precautions as well as sophisticated shoring systems for protection of critical infrastructure. Our safety culture and in-house geotechnical expertise put us in a position to add significant value to complicated transportation related projects.
