The technology supplier GEA said that the first contracts for orders for new GEA Marine Separator have now been signed.

A total of 20 GEA marine Separators will be installed on two cruise ships, it said in a press release.

"The innovative GEA technology collected the decisive plus points through the integrated direct drive, the simple service concept, the compact and thus space-saving design, the increased output per square meter of floor space and the intelligent connectivity. And the overall good GEA ranking in the marine business also led to great interest in the purifiers from GEA," claimed the release.

The new GEA marine Separator offers some advantages for the technical crews on board cruise ships, container ships and tankers. Only after a service interval of 16,000 operating hours the "Modular exchange drive unit" has to be replaced.

Unplanned maintenance is virtually eliminated with the new separator. Maintenance time on board are thus reduced by up to 90 percent, while maintenance costs are reduced and machine availability maximized. GEA customers receive an OEM-certified, exchangeable drive unit worldwide at a location of their choice.

"With a degree of efficiency of more than 96 percent and a savings potential of up to 30,000 kWh per year, the integrated direct drive is the heart of GEA's new separator series. The direct drive with its synchronous motor requires no belt or clutch," it said.

Spindle and motor are available for the first time as modular exchange drive units. This simplifies installation and maintenance of the machine immensely. The separator is accessible from all sides. The space requirement on board is reduced by 50 percent.

Based on the CWE 15375 standard, the GEA marine Separator offers full transparency and best certified flow rate (CFR). In addition, it is precisely tailored to the requirements of the vessels main machine.
