Maersk Fluid Technology (MFT) is partering with Technava to introduce its SEA-Mate Lubricant Blending-on-Board System to the Greek and Cypriot markets.

Named as the official sales agent for the technology in Greece and Cyprus, Piraeus-based Technava has already started to promote the BOB system.

Originally developed by Maersk for use on A.P Moller-Maersk Group's fleet of containerships, MFT's BOB technology allows for the blending of the in-use system oil, as a base oil, with a high-BN cylinder oil product to produce a fit-for-purpose cylinder lubricant and facilitate the addition of fresh system oil to the engine sump.

With BOB units on board, ship operators can blend cylinder lubricant compositions that match actual engine operating conditions and fuel sulphur levels.

The technology is designed to reduce cylinder oil consumption and alleviate issues such as cold corrosion and excessive cylinder wear, and also mitigate issues associated with worn system oil causing problems for the hydraulic control system in modern, electronic two-stroke engines.

The SEA-Mate BOB system has obtained letters of no objection from MAN Diesel & Turbo and Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD) engines and is suitable for use on all types of two-stroke engines.

Founded in 1968, Technava is a supplier of marine equipment and provider of technical support to the Greek and Cyprus shipping industry. The company one of the leading companies in the supply, installation and service of equipment on board all types of ships. It also acts as the representative for WinGD in Greece and Cyprus.

MFT said the fact that it is also cooperating with WinGD was a key reason for naming Technava as the official sales agent for the SEA-Mate BOB system in Greece and Cyprus.

"Maersk Fluid Technology is honoured to be working with Technava for the sales of our SEA-Mate BOB system in Greece and Cyprus. Our Blending-on-Board technology can support Greek and Cypriot ship owners with both changing engine operating conditions and fuel sulphur levels. Therefore, we believe that introducing our Blending-on-Board technology jointly with Technava, will bring great technical and financial value to the Greek and Cypriot marine industry," commented Jens Byrgesen, managing director at Maersk Fluid Technology.

Andreas Angelidis, Projects' Engineer at Technava, remarked: "As a highly reputed supplier of marine equipment we welcome the opportunity to act as the sales agent for MFT in Greece and Cyprus. We represent first class manufacturers with strong brand names and highly reliable product, so we are proud to welcome the MFT SEA-Mate BOB system into our portfolio of products."
