Netting greater performance on fishing vessels
Fuels, systems and operations in the marine industry are changing rapidly, as are the environmental laws and sustainability guidelines that govern them. By putting more than a century of marine experience to work for you, Alfa Laval is dedicated to helping you stay ahead of the wave.
We offer a comprehensive range of reliable, user-friendly equipment that is designed to enhance your fishing vessel’s performance, optimize critical operations and ensure regulatory compliance.
A lasting relationship with fishing
Aboard the Prins Maurits, a Dutch fishing vessel, Chief Engineer Auke van Slooten has doubled the life expectancy of his main engine’s lube oil, saving 1400 liters of oil a year and nearly two hours of cleaning time per week, using an Alfa Laval MIB 503 separator. For three generations, his fishing family has relied on Alfa Laval solutions.
Alfa Laval on board fishing vessels
Alfa Laval offers a wide range of equipment tailored for efficient use on fishing ships.
Ballast water treatment
Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 excels in waters of any salinity, including challenging low-clarity waters. Type approved by IMO and the U.S. Coast Guard, it provides a compact and plug-and-play solution, no matter if you choose a skid-mounted system or loose components for total flexibility.
The Alfa Laval AQUA Blue Mini freshwater generator is a compact, highly efficient solution for freshwater needs of 1–18 m3 per day. Needing little space or electrical energy, it provides a smarter alternative to bunkering or reverse osmosis for fishing vessels.
Fuel and lube oil cleaning
The Alfa Laval MIB 503 is designed to purify distillate, marine diesel oil and lubricating oil. Easy and cost-efficient to maintain, it provides exceptional oil cleaning performance for fishing vessels with up to 5 MW of engine power.
Heating and cooling
The Alfa Laval gasketed plate-and-frame heat exchangers are designed for high throughput and simple maintenance. These energy-efficient heat exchangers deliver excellent thermal performance with a low operating cost.
Heating and cooling (high pressure)
The Alfa Laval AXPM brazed plate heat exchanger handles duties at very high – even extreme – pressures. Designed for applications where CO2 is used as a refrigerant, it handles other high-pressure fluids equally well.
Lube oil filtration
The Alfa Laval Eliminator combines two technologies in one housing to extend lube oil life. The full-flow automatic filter protects the engine, while a disc-stack separator on the backflush line efficiently cleans the oil.
Oily water separation
Alfa Laval PureBilge Compact is a fully automated centrifugal separation system that cleans oily water effectively at sea. With options to reduce oil pollution below 5 ppm –far tougher than the 15 ppm IMO requirement – it sets a new standard in making water safe for discharge overboard.
Steam and heat generation
The high-performance Alfa Laval Aalborg OC-TCi (Turbo Clean, intelligent) is a space-saving combination boiler for steam and hot water, which can be heated with exhaust gas or fired with oil and gas fuels.
Spare part kits
Alfa Laval spare part kits give you all the genuine parts you need for a specific service. You can be sure of full compatibility with your equipment, as well as convenience and economy.
Alfa Laval provides Scanjet tank cleaning machines that prevent sediment build-up and reduce corrosion in fishing vessel greywater tanks. The high-impact jet combined with 360° rotary movement create a criss-cross pattern that covers all tank walls.
