The OWS-PT unveiled at SMM 2022 in Hamburg uses a “pressure type” system designed specifically for larger vessels such as VLCCs and VLOCs.

RWO Managing Director, Stratos Papamichalis, said: “Reliable and efficient OWS performance is increasingly important in ensuring effluent standards are met, but operational expenditure (OPEX) on OWS remains a concern for owners – especially where larger ships are involved.

“In the new ship designs reviewed by RWO’s product development team, space for the OWS is only available on higher decks. Conventional solutions will therefore add installation and material costs because an auxiliary pump will be needed to feed the OWS.” 

The OWS-PT eliminates the need to install an additional feed pump and offers greater flexibility for installation as it does not need to be located beside the bilge water tank. The vessel designer can then choose the most suitable location to install the OWS without needing to install additional pumps.
