Stena Line is an example of a ferry shipping company that has fully succeeded in the transition to and the use of non-spill couplings, Dry Disconnect Couplings. The shipping company bunkers all its ferries in Sweden with couplings from MannTek. The safety coupling is a necessity in order to have success in bunkering large volumes in the shortest possible time during the busy summer schedule when there is a minimum of time at their disposal.
We are extremely pleased with the spill-free couplings and it is inconceivable that we would go back to Kamlok or flange systems. We will try to ensure more and more users in the port to increase safety and ease of use.”Leif-Åke Nielsen,
Site Manager Stena Oil, Dalanäs terminal
With couplings from MannTek bunkering is completed both safer and quicker than before. We save about fifteen minutes each time and that is valuable time for Stena Line when the timetable is busy during summer.”Ola Nilsson,
