Alfa Laval to acquire tank cleaning specialist Scanjet

Alfa Laval has signed an agreement to acquire Scanjet, a Swedish specialist in marine tank cleaning with manufacturing sites in Sweden, Poland and Indonesia, and additional assembly sites in Norway and the UK.

The acquisition will fit neatly into Alfa Laval’s existing cargo tank setup. Scanjet has recently expanded its portfolio to include intelligent tank management as well as conventional fixed and portable tank cleaning hardware.

Scanjet’s ITAMA system offers a new approach to tank operations, integrating key aspects of maintenance, cleaning with real-time monitoring of tank levels, temperature and pressure.

Peter Nielsen, president of Alfa Laval’s Marine Separation & Heat Transfer business which will now include the Scanjet operation, said: “Scanjet is a tank cleaning innovator with exciting developments in the pipeline. For tankers owners and many other marine customers, there will be valuable synergies when Scanjet solutions enter the Alfa Laval portfolio.”
