VOC Recovery Systems for Crude Oil Tankers

GBA Marine is a Norwegian supplier of VOC recovery systems for crude oil tankers. Our patented CVOC® technology is currently installed on 16 vessels owned by Teekay Shipping, American Eagle Tankers and Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers, and has a proven track record of more than ten years in operation.

Based on the original CVOC® system that has been in operation on crude oil tankers world wide since 2007, GBA Marine is now introducing the CVOC® Transport System. Featuring an updated version of our patented Swirl Absorber™ and a number of other tweaks and modifications, the CVOC® Transport System now offers increased efficiency with lower power consumption and lower cost compared to the original CVOC® system. The CVOC® Transport System is mainly aimed at conventional tankers, and is tailored to be as efficient as possible during sea voyage, i.e. with full cargo tanks.

For Shuttle Tankers, FSOs, FPSOs and other vessels where VOC recovery is required during loading, we have developed the new CVOC® Loading System, which utilizes the same principles and technology for absorption of VOC as the CVOC® Transport System, and also shares all the same advantages, including automated operation, low power consumption and low maintenance requirements due to few moving parts. The design enables the CVOC® Loading System to run at full efficiency independent of cargo tank level as long as the pump inlet is submerged and the pump has positive suction pressure.

For reference we have made a basic introduction to VOC and the CVOC® system. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like a quotation.
