Core competencies - bilge water management

Around its core product - the oily water separator OWS-COM - RWO has developed specialised products to make the management of bilge water efficient as possible. The OWS-COM consists of an efficient two stage filtration system that is most economic, as it bypasses the second stage whenever possible. Advantages include:

  • Extremely compact: suitable for newsbuilds and retrofit
  • Easy to install and maintain
  • Extremely economical: regular water checks ensure that a second stage of separation is bypassed whenever possible
  • Suction type: preserves pump from attrition
  • Extremely safe: Oil Monitoring device activates recirculation mode if required

The clean bilge drain monitoring system CBM-LINK helps monitoring the amount of oil that is discharged overboard easily to avoid pollution or hefty fines. The system is compromised of two systems working together seamlessly: LINK stores and sends important operational data while CBM acts as the final level of control before water is drained off the ship. A 3-2 way valve automatically governs incoming wastewater which has been analysed according to IMO Resolution MEPC 107 (49)and transfers it either directly overboard or back into the bilge water tank for further treatment.

Sewage Treatment

RWO's sewage treatment offer CleanSewage Bio is CleanSewage Bio is designed to be extremely easy to maintain and operate. The accessibility from one side allows ship designers to plan space in the engine room on a whole new level.

Operators and crew benefit from hygienic no-touch-cleaning system. The intuitive status control allows checking at a glance, whether the system is running smoothly or intervention is necessary. CleanSewage Bio works with a proven 3-chamber-treatment concept that ensures highest water quality according to MEPC.227(64).

Ballast Water Treatment

After actively observing and evaluating the situation in the ballast water market, especially in terms of USCG and revised IMO G8 regulations, RWO has signed the letter of intent to gain USCG type approval for its Clean Ballast system in June 2018, formalising the decision to continue with the development of a ballast water treatment system. The land based test is commencing summer 2018 and a partner for the shipboard test has already been confirmed. This strengthens the company's positive outlook towards achieving IMO G8 and USCG type approval.

Fresh Water Treatment

RWO's reverse osmosis desalination systems (SRO) are designed for independent and reliable potable and/or process water supply onboard ships and offshore facilities.

The reverse osmosis process is ideal for fresh water or process water generation - being easy to operate, economical and producing excellent water quality.

A main advantage is the continued production of high quality fresh water from unpolluted seawater that is free of oil and chlorine.

What is special about the SRO-COM is its pre-assembled skid mounted design, which is ready for installation and operations on board due to its "plug-and-play"-principle.

This desalination plant has a stable permeate flow over the complete temperature range from 1°C-35°C.
