Swedish maritime environmental solution company Marinfloc has announced an update to its CD EGR system, and has, following rigorous and extensive tests, secured approval to treat Exhaust Gas Recirculation bleed off water from WinGD engines equipped with iCER systems.
Consequently, the CD EGR is transitioning to the Marinfloc WTS (Water Treatment System. Marinfloc says that its WTS is a significant advancement of the CD EGR system rather than just a product iteration. The membrane-free innovation is designed to sidestep the pitfalls of expensive, high-maintenance membranes, paving the way for a more sustainable and economical wastewater treatment approach.
According to the company, the WinGD endorsement is testament to the WTS system’s robustness and reliability, further solidifying its position in maritime environmental solutions.
The WTS system offers the capability to automatically adjust its overboard discharge capacity in line with water generation, while consistently supplying the iCER system with treated water. This optimisation, managed by the Discharge Control Unit tailored for the WinGD application, can significantly reduce energy consumption and the use of consumables, resulting in a system that is both cost-effective for shipowners and operators and can minimise the CO2 footprint.
Martin Gombrii, MD Marinfloc Sales and Production, said: “We want to do our part in the industry’s endeavour for energy reduction and CO2 emissions, and the adaptability of the WTS is our answer. Most solutions on the market are either turned on or off, meaning the energy consumption is either 0 or 100%. We strive to be at the forefront of this and believe that such adaptable solutions are one of the industry’s paths toward sustainability.”
Marinfloc’s WTS system boasts a human-machine interface (HMI) designed with the user in mind, which simplifies system monitoring and management, with instructional videos and digital guidelines accessible directly in the engine room. The HMI facilitates remote service and support, ensuring vessels stay connected and receive assistance, no matter their location.
Gombrii sad: “The new approval and rebranding of our WTS Wastewater Treatment System underscore our dedication to leading industry solutions that not only meet but exceed regulatory standards, all while backing sustainability and efficiency.”
