Marine Applications

  • Container

    Containerization has greatly reduced the expense of international trade and increased its throughput, especially in relation to consumer goods and commodities. As of today, some 90% of non-bulk cargo worldwide is moved by containers stacked aboard container vessels.


  • Tanker

    Tankers were first used by the oil industry to transfer refined fuel in bulk from refineries to customers but today are also used to transport a vast variety of products such as chemicals, fresh water, wine and molasses.
    Modern tankers vary in size from smaller, local, coastal tankers to VLCCs (Very Large Crude Carriers), some of the largest vessels found sailing the oceans.


  • Bulker

    The first, dedicated bulk carrier was built in the middle of the 19th century, since which time economic forces have furthered their development, causing them to grow in size and sophistication. Modern bulk carriers prioritize capacity, safety, efficiency and durability.


  • LNG

    Global energy demands continue to rise year after year as existing oil reservoirs become depleted and the search for replacements spreads to deeper parts of the ocean, requiring massive investment costs. A general change in energy politics has nuclear and coal power losing popularity while gas from the US and Middle-East is emerging as a viable alternative.


  • LPG

    LPG is manufactured during the refining of petroleum (crude oil), or extracted from petroleum or natural gas streams as they emerge from the ground. Representing an alternative to LNG, LPG production has a modest share of the global energy market but continues to grow steadily.
