CWWS Delivers 200 Separators To Tidewater

Tidewater Marine L.L.C. has put new muscle behind its commitment to protecting the environment with a decision to extend a program of bilge water treatment to virtually its entire fleet. Heli- Sep Oily Water Separators manufactured by Coffin World Water Systems LLC (CWWS) are helping the company accomplish its goal.

Heli-Sep units are already used on the larger vessels in Tidewater's fleet that are subject to the 15 ppm oil discharge limit mandated by IMO MEPC. 60(33).

In addition, the company has now acted to install oily water separators onboard even its smaller workboats. which are legally exempt from that regulation.

The value of the total purchase agreement is in excess of $500,000. Lee Engineering of New Orleans is the agent for CWWS in this transaction.

E. J. Hebert. vice president of Engineering for Tidewater Marine, said. "We believe it is important for Tidewater to set an example for proactive environmental initiatives, instead of waiting for broader regulation." Heli-Sep oily water separators are equipped with a self-cleaning polishing pack and a permanent coalescing matrix that eliminates the need to replace filters.

Each unit is shipped pre-piped and pre-wired to simplify installation. With more than 6,000 units in service worldwide.

Heli-Sep design has proven performance in meeting global discharge standards reliably and cost-effectively.

CWWS offers a series of models with capacities ranging from 0.5 to 10 cu.

m./hr. (2.2 to 44 gpm), which can accommodate the full range of shipboard needs.
