    Fuel oil booster unit

    fuel oil booster unit for Brodosplit 470

    During design phase, we carefully consider each engine(s)' configuration: maker, type, size and number of engines, as well as available space in the engine room to come up with fully optimised, custom made unit which will provide exact viscosity, given maximum particle size and pressure of fuel oil supplied to the engine, enabling it not only to develop its/their performance to the fullest, but also to reduce the carbon dioxide footprint of the vessel in the environment.

  • fuel and lubricating oil separators unit

    separator units

    For every project, we consider each engine(s)' configuration: maker, type, size and number of engines, as well as available space in the engine room, making our optimised tailor-made unit respond to the highest engines' makers demands.

  • burner's fuel and waste condition unit

    Queen Mary burner waste condition unit

    In accordance with current environmental standards which aim to get rid of the sludge (waste), this tailor-made unit is designed to mix the fuel with waste in requested ratio, homogenise the resulting mixture and then send it under pressure to the boiler burner.

  • low sulphur fuel oil cooling unit

    fuel oil chiller and cooler

    Annex VI of International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution From Ships, 1973 as modified by the Protocol of 1978 dealing with air pollution has as one of the most important requirements the reduction of sulphur oxides emissions from fossil fuels. These highly corrosive compounds are widely known as primary agents in acid rains. Fuels with low sulphur content present themselves as natural response to these requirements. Since fuel oils are of low viscosity, to protect the engines from potentially harmful low viscosity it is necessary to cool down this kind of fuel. This can be achieved by carefully designed units comprising of chiller, chilled water circuit and coolers with controlled valves.

  • fuel oil
    changeover unit

    Originally, this system was designed for switching from heavy fuel oil to marine diesel oil and vice versa. Facing present demand for the change from heavy fuel oil to low sulphur fuel oil of low viscosity, this process became much more complicated and requires integration of fuel oil cooling unit as well as "intelligent" valves before fuel oil booster unit. The unit ensures fuel temperature change and viscosity to be according engine manufacturer recommendations. As with all our units, the system is designed and optimised for each project, providing complete solution in combination with fuel oil cooling unit.

  • water treatment unit

    water treatment unit

    Designed to meet the needs of each vessel in terms of:

    • » Sanitary water
    • » Potable water
    • » Hot water

    Units are built in accordance with all demands of health organisations worldwide.

  • ballast water
    treatment unit

    Ballast water treatment unit for Kraljevica 548

    Proper control and management of ships’ ballast water became a major environmental challenge for the global shipping industry. International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments (the Ballast Water Management Convention) in 2004, not yet in force, requires all vessels to have ballast water treatment devices. Depending on operational vessel’s needs as well as ballast water system capabilities, we design (redesign for existing vessels), optimise capacity and type of the unit. Installation and start-up of the complete system is done by our certified engineers.

  • miscellaneous engine room units

    For each project we optimise different units, based on engine room configuration,
    engine(s)' maker, type, size and number of engines.

    In order to improve Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) of each particular vessel, together with VAF Instruments, we are promoting system consisting of T-Sense Shaft Power Torque Sensor, or TT-Sense Shaft Power Thrust Sensor, in combination with VAF PT flowmeters which are built in our fuel oil modules. The system gathers all data from which it calculates respective consumption of main, auxiliary engines and boilers, as well as total vessel fuel oil consumption, and makes SFOC calculation related to the shaft power. The system is able to communicate with engine room control system, which can be connected to the owner's headquarters via satellite link.

  • About

    Armator Projekt was established in 1996 with innovative, modular approach to ships' engine room. Since then hundreds of ships all over the world have been equipped with different kinds of units carefully produced in our workshop - paying attention to particular needs of each ship.

    We believe that individual approach will make our customers' ships bring their performance to their fullest, and by doing so reduce the carbon dioxide footprint in the enviroment.

    In the new millenium our mission to protect enviroment is more prominent than ever. We are involved in protection of local ecosystems all over the world through implementation of ballast water treatment systems. Moreover, we are following the latest guidelines of atmosphere protection in coastal areas by implementing systems for reducing emissions of sulphur oxides.
