Langh Tech delivers all the equipment necessary for a fully working open loop system. The deal also includes commissioning and certification of the systems. All of the systems will be delivered within 2019.

Marmaras Navigation and Delta Tankers are two of the most reputable ship owning companies in Greece with a total fleet of 32 bulk carriers and 28 oil tankers operating their ships with top class charterers.
