Oil Conveyor has received U.S Patent
Faroe Maritime Technic has got a patent approval in the United States on the Oil Conveyor, that is already on the market and has shown very good results.
The Oil Conveyor has already approved patents in Europe and elsewhere in the world, but the patent in the United States assures Faroe Marine Technic that others can not copy the system.
The Oil Conveyor works in the way that a conveyor belt is running continuously in the keel of the vessel, so that the oily water can be cleaned. The oily water comes in a settlings pipe, where oil and water are separated. The treated water then goes back into the keel and the oil goes in the waste oil tank.
Faroe Maritime Technic is also obtaining patent approval for a system called Sludge Dewatering Separator. It is a system which takes the water from the sludge which comes from centrifuges board.

Three SDS systems to Gdansk
There is a hectic activity at our workshop in these days. We are finalizing the last of three Sludge Dewatering Separator (SDS), which are dispatched to Poland next week, where they will be installed onboard three Danish supply vessels to operate in Brazilian waters.
It is no coincidence, that the company chooses to mount the SDS in these boats It costs namely with 500US$ to 600 US$ per m3 to land Sludge in Brazil. (In Australia it can cost 650 U.S. $ per. M3).The Danish company decided to do this investment, when they saw the results of the test installation on their test boat - the test boat had reduced its sludge volume by 60% during the trial period. The engine crew on the test boat, don´t use the Sludge tanks any longer they process the sludge directly from the small collection tanks under the purifiers.
Employees from Faroe Maritime Technic will travel a lot during the next month. First they are heading for Gdansk to make sure that the SDS´s are mounted properly. Then the long way to Tømrefjord in the North of Norway, where they will install an Oil Conveyor for Aker Seafood, and finally they will supervise on a installation of an Oil Conveyor onboard the seismic ship The Western Monarch.
We at FMT has noticed a growing interest in our products, since we lunched The Sludge Dewatering Separator.
Sales manager Rasmus Magnussen, has been on three fairs within a month, to introduce our products. So we look forward to the exciting challenges of the future.

New revolutionary Sludge Dewatering Separator (SDS) on the market
Now there´s good news to all those who have to handle hydrous oily sludge, both on land and at sea.
Faroe Maritime Technic (FMT), have during the latest 9 months developed and tested a prototype, to separate free and emulsified water from oily-sludge.
The system was originally a book up task from a large Danish shipping company, who wanted a total solution, to remove all the water, which is typically in various sludge tanks aboard their ships in an environmentally friendly manner. Since the company could not find any acceptable solution on the market, FMT was assigned to the task, through an already well-run cooperation.
In May 2012 the prototype was mounted on an experimental ship, and after commissioning, could both FMT and the company noted that The SDS was a success.
To test the SDS, it dealt with contents from all tanks that contained sludge of different kinds of oil. The result was that after a three week trial run, they had processed all sludge aboard.
Systems success criteria specified by the Danish shipping Company were:
- Fully automatic operation, with minimum maintenance
- Can be scaled and costume made to process from 300 up to over 1200 liters of sludge per day.
- The moisture content of the oil can be regulated as required, completely down to 0%.
- Environmentally friendly with minimal energy consumption.
Taken in consideration that empirical data show that there are around 50-70% water content in the sludge landed, the SDS will saves the company a lot of money. The SDS will also sharpening the Company “Green Profile“, by treating the Sludge in an environmental friendly way.
FMT and the Danish shipping company have signed a contract on delivering the SDS to a number of their ships in first place. The first systems will be produced as early as August 2012.
The SDS can also be expanded to handle Clean Bilge water as well.
The SDS is patent pending.

Animation of the Oil Conveyor system
The Oil Conveyor system is made of acid resistant steel "AISI 316L" and is designed and constructed to operate in harsh maritime conditions.
The absorbing mops are guaranteed a lifespan of 1 year under 24 hours operating time a day, without losing any noticeable suction capacity.
...is a brand new pre-separator system, which is developed to minimize oil releases from ships, and at the same time increase maritime safety and save money. Also it is ment as a helping product to the oil/water separator(OWS).
The oil mop can collect from 4 up to 11 litres of oil per hour, while the water is rejected at the settling tank and returned to the keel. The conveyor belt itself has a variable length of 1 to 3 metres with a 30cm difference. This depends on the size of the ship and the best suited location for the machine. Therefore, the length of the conveyor, varies from ship to ship.
- Patented settling tank saves money
- Turning in oil at harbours is calculatet by litres, and its therefore beneficial to keep the oil free of water. With our settling tank the excees water is rejected back to the bilgewater and only pure oil is beeing pumped in to spill oil tank. By this companies are saving lots of money, instead of paying for delivering water.
- Patented settling tank saves money
The Oil Conveyor is designed to fit into almost every ship in the world. The thin design and adjustible angle-mechanisme makes the Oil Conveyor uniqe for use in maritime environments.
