The VCRS MVRU – 1100 tackles the ever present challenge to the petrochemical industry, especially tanker operators and barge operators, to comply with ‘green’ incentives and reduce emissions. Especially trans-shipments between Sea-going vessels and Inland barges have been in the sights of Port authorities and Environmental agencies alike.Sea going ships are inerted to less than 8% oxygen in their tanks. Barges are often not inerted, making them incompatible with inerted ships when vapour balancing. During transfers between ships and noninerted barges the MVRU – 1100 serves to capture VOC’s from the barge and control vapour emissions. The MVRU – 1100 system handles up to 1100 Cu. M. per hour vapour, with a VOC removal efficiency of 99,9%. It is readily available from our warehouse in Rotterdam and can be transported by conventional means (it is the size and dimensions of a 20 feet TEU container). It can be prepared and mobilised in a matter of hours, making it an ideal partner for people planning trans-shipments in environmentally sensitive areas.
