Victor Marine's Lite Oily Water Separators

press release
Wednesday, January 11, 2012
lightweight version of Victor Marine's CS Series range of separators

Victor Marine Ltd has announced that they have recently received and fulfilled a significant order from one of India’s largest engineering and construction conglomerates to supply a series of lightweight Oily Water Separators for installation on fast attack interceptor vessels.


These lighter units have now been added to Victor Marine’s full range of products and are available to any interested parties. Due to the weight constraints applied to this project, Victor Marine faced the challenge of designing and building a lightweight version of their already very successful CS Series range of separators. Having to meet a rapidly approaching delivery date for this customer, the work undertaken had to be carried out in a very short period of time.

Tasked with producing a separator weighing no more than 215 Kgs (dry weight) Victor Marine have produced a fully functional aluminium separator weighing only 169 Kgs (dry weight) which is an incredible 30% reduction in the finished weight of a standard CS Series unit . It should be noted that this reduction in weight also surpassed the customer’s original indicated requirement. Three of these lightweight units have already been ordered and supplied (see attached product image) and all involved in the project are delighted with the process and finished product.
