The Marine Market Overview
The Marine Market, is exceptionally diverse, ranging from military, to holiday cruises, to container shipments and smaller pleasure cruises. The common denominator between them is the need to keep the internal engineering and processes working to their optimal so that their primary function, be that delivery, leisure or security can be maintained without interference.
Marine Market Growth – regional focus
The marine market is anticipated to rise to a value of $188.57 billion by 2028, according to industry research. It is an industry that reflects the strength of the global economy, as the more industrialised or consumer based a country is, the greater the need for delivered goods; the growth of the marine industry ebbs and flows with the economic changes within the world. The growth for 2028 is based on greater industrialisation of countries, particularly China and India.
The U.S. Marine Transportation System (MTS) is viewed as critical to the US economy and to its prosperity, this marine market includes commercial and military. The MTS supports $5.4 trillion of economic activity each year and accounts for the employment of more than 31 million within the USA.
Marine Market and Delta Mobrey
It is imperative that the engines and systems on board all vessels, remain working to their optimum and reduce possible pollutants and contamination. This is where Delta Mobrey and process implementation can assist the marine industry. We have a range of sensors, switches and transmitters to ensure that any gases or fluids essential to the smooth running of engineering systems or living quarters of marine vessels work within defined and acceptable parameters. Any fluctuations will trigger alarms so crew are alerted to any anomalies before they become problems for the vessel.
As an example, there are products specifically designed to detect oil in water; the Delta Mobrey M442SD and the Delta Mobrey 402SD combined with the Delta Mobrey MCU200 Controller. The combination of these products creates an electronic system to protect marine boilers, by ensuring the boiler feedwater is not contaminated with oil.
This type of contamination frequently occurs as condensing steam runs through the ship’s systems before being returned to the boiler. Any leaks may cause oil to enter the circulating condensate and can result in serious boiler damage by overheating. This could result in reduced water flow and heat transfer. To prevent this Mobrey 442SD sensors are installed across the feed-water pipelines, while Mobrey 402SD sensors are designed for installation within the vessel’s tanks, connected to the feed-water pipework. The sensors detect the presence of the oil and signal an alarm via the Mobrey MCU200 Controller. A ship’s crew is then aware of the problem, can investigate before any substantial damage is done.
