—Literature Available The U.K. Ministry of Defence has selected the MFV (Moss Fredrikstad Verft) marine incinerator, marketed in the United Kingdom by Marine Ventures Ltd., as the most suitable commercially available incinerator for onboard installation on the Royal Navy's recently ordered Type 23 frigates.
The Ministry of Defence selected the MFV incinerator after thoroughly testing and comparing the various proprietary incinerators available to the marine industry.
The MFV incinerator's unique "U"- shaped combustion chamber was said to have shown to result in more thorough incineration in the least amount of time.
Having been designed as a failsafe unit specifically for use on ships and offshore rigs, the MOD tests confirmed the MFV design as having features that make it compatible with the shipboard environment and capable of disposing of the wastes normally generated on board naval ships.
The outside surface temperature of the incinerator is maintained at a safe and moderate temperature by air cooling and insulation, making it possible to operate the incinerator continuously, if necessary.
The MFV incinerator is manufactured in Norway by Moss Fredrikstad Verft to comply with the rules of all major classification societies and the U.S. Coast Guard.
The MARPOL 73/78 IMO Convention dealing with ship-generated refuse and solid wastes—which is expected to be ratified in the near future—and disposal of accumulated oil slops are making incinerators a standard requirement on many new-buildings in shipyards throughout the world.
