Westfalia Separator Tapped By NASSCO

Wednesday, January 03, 2001
Westfalia Separator has received an order from NASSCO for fuel oil and lube oil separators to be implemented on a pair of ice strengthened, environmentally safe RoRo newbuilds for Totem Ocean Trailer Express (TOTE). Designed to carry 600 feu and 200 vehicles at a service speed of 24 knots, the 256 m vessels are scheduled for delivery in April and September 2002.

The vessels' supply scope will consist of one plant for treating heavy oil and diesel oil, which includes a trio of separators, type OSC 50, one plant for treating the lube oil of the main engines that includes four separators, type OSC 30. One additional plant that will be used to treat the lube oil of the auxiliary engines includes two separators type OSC 5. Constituting the latest C-generation mineral oil centrifuges, the Westfalia separators being supplied offer a wide range of advantages, such as easy installation, reduced amount of spare parts and extended maintenance intervals - all of which are equal to that of the main engines.
