About us
FMT was founded in 2008 by chief engineer Kaj Joensen, that in his many years at sea experienced significant challenges with contaminated bilge water and waste oils. A major problem was getting the OWS.
Kaj developed a solution to solve the problem, and this invention resulted in the patented Oil Conveyor, which is now installed on board several ships around the world. As a result of good references, AP Moeller Maersk asked for a solution, that was able to handle the large amount of water in various sludge types.
R&D resulted in the Sludge Dewatering Separator, SDS, that boils water out of the sludge in a very environmental friendly way. Both APM and other shipowners have acquired different SDS-systems from FMT. SDS gives the owners an average sludge reduction of 60-70%. At the moment work is going on to refine the SDS-system into the socalled SDE, Sludge Dewatering Evaporator.

Kaj has a degree in marine engineering and has experienced the difficulties of dealing with oily contaminated bilge water. It is very time consuming to deal with the OWS systems. Therefore he developed a system which could pre-clean the contaminated bilge water before it is led overboard through the OWS. This system was called the Oil Conveyor. The excellent results from the Oil Conveyor lead to a custom request for a system which could dewater oily sludge in an environmentally friendly way. The outcome was the Sludge Dewatering Separator (SDS).
