Plant and equipment used on ships and yachts are exposed to the harshest of climatic conditions, to rough environments and extremely high mechanical stress. BD|SENSORS pressure and fill level measuring instruments will remain reliable and durable for many years under such conditions of stress. The many certifications for shipping worldwide document that the functionality and design of our equipment is eminently suited for deployment on ships.
As the market leader for the marine and shipping industry, we supply a number of key clients with a range of marine water treatment applications, including cruise liners, luxury pleasure craft, transport freighters and specialised FPSO (floating production, storage and off-loading) vessels around the world.
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.
Ballast Water Solutions. Ship ballasts often carry aquatic organisms that can cause a significant problem when transported from one body of water to another. In fact, the invasion of non-native species via ballast water has been described by maritime and environmental authorities as `one of the greatest threats to the world`s waterways.`
Purestream proprietary UV ballast water management system (BWMS) uses filtration in combination with Atlantium’s proven medium pressure ultraviolet (UV) technology to achieve unparalleled results. The Purestream system is validated to operate at minimum retention times (≤ 24-hours) following treatment of 100% of the maximum flow under difficult water conditions with UV transmittance as low as 40% UVT.
Problem: To operate safely and efficiently, cargo ships take in water to provide stability. This water, referred to as ballast, carries all kinds of bacteria, microbes and micro-algae. The ballast water must inevitably be discharged when the ship takes on cargo, often thousands of kilometers away from the port of origin, transferring pathogens and aquatic organisms that can cause serious environmental, economic and health problems.
TenCate geosynthetics enhance the performance and the design life of railway construction structures. For these applications, a TenCate geosynthetic is installed as separation and filter layers in areas where groundwater is a problem. TenCate geosynthetics offer the ideal characteristics of robust mechanical properties coupled with high water flow capabilities.
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...
The ballast water treatment market is set to experience significant growth in the next few years. In the wake of the ratification of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Ballast Water Management Convention and the introduction of the more stringent United States Coast Guard (USCG) Ballast Water Management Regulations, suppliers need to be ready to act on the expected spur of investment in ballast water treatment systems.
Facing the increasing oversea trade, the environmental protection of the oceans is becoming increasingly important. The motto of the International Maritime Organization of the United Nations in London (IMO), “Safe, secure and efficient shipping on clean oceans” confronts the shipping industry and in particular the terminal ports with growing challenges. The stored fuels, raw materials and resources of a country must not pollute the harbor water with their emissions in case of rain. Produced liquid...
Our systems are used in the marine industry everywhere from small boatyards to large shipyards. We effectively remove heavy metals, oil & grease, and debris from bilgewater, as well as remove marine organisms from ballast water.
Ballast water tanks on board ships are filled with water from one sea and discharged in another sea can cause marine ecological imbalance by introducing foreign species of aquatic life. The discharge of water from ballast tanks has been responsible for the introduction of species that cause environmental and economic damage.
In shipbuilding, high standards of reliability as well as increasingly the energy efficiency of the systems are important prerequisites for the economical-technical overall evaluation in the technical procurement process. Ships as self-sufficient systems are particularly dependent on the reliable functioning of all installed components, including the pumps. They fulfil many tasks on board which are vital for the operation of the vessel: Delivery of ballast water and wastewater, boiler supply, condensate recovery,...
Pharmaceutical facilities looking for a highly efficient non-chemical solution to prevent bacterial growth and associated biofouling can rely on the proven performance of the HOD UV technology for disinfection and dechlorination.
