Cargo Tank VOC Reduction System ( De - VOC )

JangWon

 

What is VOC? During loading, storage and transportation of cargo on tanker vessels, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) is emitted to the atmosphere. Evidently, the emission represents a loss of considerable amounts of cargo and thus money. But the harmful consequences to the environment are of greater importance as VOC gases are a pollutant to the atmosphere.

 

Our Principals Messrs JangWon SM introduce the VOC Reduction System as a direct solution with a short payback period for the investment.

Columbia Cruise Services (CCS) approached our Principals Messrs PSM Marine Instrumentation as the existing tank gauging system on the MV Thomson Dream cruise ship which they manage had become old and unreliable.  Maintenance costs were increasing and spare parts were becoming very expensive and difficult to obtain.

 

At 55,000 gross tonnage and measuring 244m in length with 12 decks, and able to hold up to 1,500 passengers and 600 crew members, this is one of the larger vessels for which PSM have been briefed to provide a complete ship wide tank gauging system.
