exchanging technology and know-how to minimise environmental footprint of ships

We engineer and manufacture solutions for specific niche applications to regulate and control gasses and liquids under severe and critical conditions. We co-develop solutions with key accounts who often face numerous responsibilities and challenges.

In 2018, for example, two major European ship owners with a total fleet of over 360 vessels contracted Aalberts fluid control to minimise the environmental footprint of their ships. When it comes to propulsion management, optimising performance is key. Cost-effective goals are not the only drivers for performance management—environmental impact, competition and pending rules and regulations are also considered. 

We managed to equip the vessels with cutting-edge sensors, enabling fuel consumption to be measured and monitored. With the data generated from these sensors, the ship owners can now manage and reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, resulting in more sustainable transportation in shipping. 

Acquiring a specialist in high-tech sensors and measurement systems in 2018, brings extra knowledge to the Aalberts portfolio, which can be valuable in other applications.
