Last week Langh Tech’s closed loop scrubber process won first place in the Green Ship Technology category of awards at the Green Ship Technology Conference in Copenhagen. Companies were nominated for recent accomplishments, from the period of 1st January 2016 to 31st January 2017.
During this period Langh Tech has received significant orders from the international cruise companies, making an important entry into the cruise ship scrubber market. Langh Tech's tailor-made scrubber towers and modular water treatment systems reduce the installation costs significantly especially in retrofit cases. Furthermore, to keep meeting the customer expectations, Langh Tech is constantly developing its products to lower both CAPEX and OPEX of the systems.
The judge panel selected Langh Tech as a winner based on having an innovative design, dynamic focus on customer requirements, a good and workable solution and clear market potential. Collaboration with customers as well as ensuring system compatibi...
Having established a firm position on the market for supplying scrubbers and water treatment systems, Langh Tech is now expanding its water treatment technology to new areas.
Langh Tech has been working in close cooperation with MAN Diesel & Turbo (MDT) to develop a water treatment system to be used for cleaning the process water of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) systems. EGR is a method to reduce NOx emissions to meet Tier III requirements. In the EGR process, approximately one third of the exhaust gas is recycled back into the engine, first removing the particles from the redirected gases with a small scrubber. The process water from exhaust gas washing is continuously cleaned during EGR operation and this is where Langh Tech’s water treatment technology is applied. Langh Tech water treatment is based on membrane filtration, meaning that the operational costs are kept low and the waste consists only of small amounts of compact dry sludge.
