Marine Fluid Technology partners with Bindemann Group to introduce SEA-Mate® Lubricant Blending-on-Board System to the German market

September 19, 2018

PRESS RELEASE

Christian Bindemann Group have commenced with the promotion of the Marine Fluid Technology’s (MFT) SEA-Mate® Blending-on-Board (BOB) system as the official sales agent for the technology in Germany.

Originally developed by Maersk for use on A.P Moller-Maersk Group's fleet of containerships, MFT’s BOB technology allows for the blending of the in-use system oil, or a low BN cylinder oil, as a base oil, with a high-BN cylinder oil product to produce a Fit-for-Purpose cylinder lubricant and facilitate the addition of fresh system oil to the engine sump.

With BOB units on board, ship operators can blend cylinder lubricant compositions that match actual engine operating conditions and fuel Sulphur levels. The use of this technology can reduce cylinder oil consumption and alleviate issues such as cold corrosion and excessive cylinder wear. It can also mitigate issues associated with worn system oil causing problems for the hydraulic control system in modern, electronic two-stroke engines.

The SEA-Mate® BOB system has obtained letters of no objection from MAN Diesel & Turbo and Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD) engines and is suitable for use on all types of two-stroke engines.

Evergas and Clipper Group to Equip Vessels with Maersk Fluid Technology SEA-Mate® Lubricant Blending-On-Board System
June 6, 2017

 

Maersk Fluid Technology (MFT) has signed contracts with both Evergas and the Clipper Group for the supply of the SEA-Mate® Blending-on-Board (BOB) system. This recent order takes the total number of SEA-Mate® BOB systems invested in by ship owners to over two hundred units, representing millions of logged cylinder operation hours.

A recent influx of orders for the SEA-Mate® Blending-on-Board (BOB) system confirms industry interest in technical solutions that enable ship operators to blend fit-for-purpose cylinder lubricant compositions on board their vessels that match actual engine operating conditions and fuel sulphur levels.

Onboard lubricant blending can reduce cylinder oil consumption and alleviate issues such as cold corrosion and excessive cylinder wear. It can also mitigate issues associated with worn system oil causing problems for the hydraulic control system in modern, electronic 2-stroke engines. Initially a tool for reduction of lubrication issues on very large 2-stroke engines, the concept is today available in three different sizes and suitable for all modern 2-stroke engines.

Since the 2015 introduction, the SEA-Mate® B1000 system has also been adopted for vessels owned by Bertling, Masterbulk and Evergas. For the smaller B500 system, the Clipper group has in 2017 taken delivery of the first unit, to be fitted on a vessel equipped with an MAN Diesel S42MC engine.

Maersk Fluid Technology to present at 39th Propulsion & Emissions conference in May 2017
May 5, 2017

 

Upon request, we are giving a presentation of the challenge of 2-stroke engine lubrication before and after the Sulphur Cap in 2020, seen from an operators point of view.

Shipowners face continuously changing requirements for engine fuel – and thus also for 2-stroke engine lubrication. With the latest generation of  Blending-on-Board lubrication management system, cylinder oil is blended on the go, making it possible to optimize for both running conditions and the fuel specifications, being it traditional HFO or alternative fuels. Our presentation will touch on the challenges shipowners deal with today, and how a blending system can help mitigate both liner lubrication issues and system oil contamination issues and facilitate refreshment of system oil leading to reduced energy consumption and  increased lifetime for cylinder & hydraulic system components. 

Sune Lilbaek, Head og Sales & Marketing at Maersk Fluid tehnology, will talk about 2-stroke engine "Lubrication Optimization Challenges - before and after 2020" at Motorships 39th conference on Propulsion and Emission, taking place in Hamburg on May 10-12th.
