CLSICO (China LNG Shipping International Co).
CLSICO and Martek Marine have enjoyed a good working relationship over many years. Their technical expertise and customer service has been exemplary, and we look forward to continuing to work with them
As one of the largest owners and operators of Single Hold Cargo vessels in the world, Erwin Strahlmann are required to fit water ingress detection systems to the majority of our fleet of vessels, to comply with SOLAS Chapter XII, Regulation 12. After evaluating various offers we selected Martek Marine’s award winning Bulksafe™ system, which was chosen because it was simple to install and operate. Martek has over 700 references from installations that are in operation today, and demonstrated that the Bulksafe™ system is the most reliable and durable water ingress detection system available. Martek also offered a personalised installation and commissioning package that was very attractive to Erwin Strahlmann. Overall we felt that Martek were a truly world class company and ideal for Erwin Strahlmann to partner with for our fleet of vessels.
V-Ships selected the Bulksafe™ water ingress detection system from your good company Martek Marine Ltd, because it offered the simplest and most economic installed solution for compliance with the regulations. We were delighted with Martek’s performance in managing the supply and installation contract on our vessel without any hitches. The equipment was delivered ahead of schedule to a tight deadline and the Martek Project Manager who attended the vessel in dry-dock delivered first class installation. The systems are performing exactly as Martek claimed and will be installed across our Principals fleet.
Wilson Ship Management AS
At Wilson Ship Management, the safety of our crew is always given the highest priority. As part of this crew welfare commitment, we recognised the value of investing in the Lifeforce specialist marine defibrillator for our entire fleet of owned vessels. Lifeforce’s Type Approval reassured us that, in the unfortunate event of an emergency life saving situation, it is guaranteed to perform. The simplicity and ease of use offered by Lifeforce was another key factor in our decision, along with the total support provided by Martek Marine, a dedicated marine company that understands the demands of our shipping operations.
Swire Pacific Offshore
We chose the product originally for its ease of use, weight, available support and the main point was that they are marine type approved.As in most things marine we don’t usually get feedback from the fleet and in seafaring speak this is very positive, seafarers are known to complain about most things, so no comment at all is very good feedback on the product. When using the dummy units for training, the attendees are always very impressed by the foolproof use.
Maestro Shipmanagement (Cyprus) Ltd
Maestro Shipmanagement Ltd, based in Limassol, Cyprus, looks upon the provision of a defibrillator unit to each of the vessels within the fleet as sensible and pro-active good management that additionally provides the crew with a real means to make a difference. Having completed a broad market investigation, it became clear that Martek Marine were able to provide a marine-approved unit at a reasonable cost, specifically tailored for the fairly unforgiving demands of the marine industry. This, combined with the evident simplicity of use, guided the decision which has not been regretted.
Hoegh Fleet Services
Höegh Fleet Services, undertook a thorough analysis of available technology in the market and concluded that Martek’s Evolution EMS™ was the most suitable system.
Pioneer Ship Management
Pioneer Ship Management chose Evolution EMS™ because we were interested in the fuel savings opportunities open to us from fitting the Evolution EMS™ system. We undertook a trial in the North Sea where we used Evolution EMS™ to monitor the NOx emissions from the main engine on-board our crude oil tanker Atlantic Galaxy, which allowed us to tune the main engine to maximise its performance and reduce its fuel consumption. Following the successful trial, we expanded the system to also include NOx monitoring of the auxiliary engines, as an expression of our environmental commitment.
Peter Dohle Schiffahrts
Peter Dohle Schiffahrts and Martek Marine undertook a detailed programme of trials to establish the scope of fuel savings achievable on-board MV Copiapo through engine optimisation using the Evolution EMS™ - Emissions Monitoring System. The equipment was installed, in-passage by the Martek service team with assistance of the ships engineers. The installation did not affect the vessels operation. Various trials were carried out on the main engine (Wartsila 10RTA96-C) to measure NOx/CO2 and F.O consumption. The trials concluded that fuel savings in the range 0.6% - 2.1% were delivered. The main engine was monitored for Specific NOx emissions throughout the trials and was proven to be in compliance with the limits in the NOx Technical Code both before and after each trial.
Metrostar Management Corp
The Evolution EMS™ was professionally installed in-passage aboard MT Crudestar without any detrimental effect on the operation of the vessel. The system comprised of the fully Type Approved Evolution EMS™ System including the gas sampling equipment, engine performance/ambient correction sensors and Approved NOx/CO2/SOx calculation software as required by the legislation. The system proved accurate and reliable for NOx / CO2 monitoring in compliance with MARPOL Annex VI Regulation 13 and The NOx Technical Code. By monitoring NOx & CO2 emissions the engine was optimised to achieve audited fuel savings in the region of 2.45%. By fitting the Evolution EMS™ system, we are freed from the restrictions imposed by the onerous, disruptive and risky Parameter Check Survey compliance method leaving us free to source our engine spare parts in the open market at major cost saving to OEM parts. The SOx monitoring feature provided reliable monitoring delivering accurate reporting of the sulphur emissions in line with Regulation 14(4). Evolution EMS™ allows Metrostar to conform with Best Practice Environmental Policy. Due to the complete success of the trial we have endorsed the fitting of Evolution EMS™ to our vessels.
