“We have selected Langh Tech for offering an attractive combination of system quality, simplicity and proven track record,” says Paschalis Diamantides, owner of Marmaras and Delta Tankers.
“We felt comfortable with their production facilities and we valued highly their inherent experience on scrubber systems as ship operators as well.
“They were able to facilitate our tight delivery schedule demand and showed great flexibility in formulating a custom-fit scheme for serving our specific post-panamax and aframax tanker fleet retrofit program.”
Marmaras Navigation and Delta Tankers has a total fleet of 32 bulk carriers and 28 oil tankers.
“It is our honour to serve Marmaras and Delta Tankers in Greece and we are very excited to work on a demanding retrofit project with tight deliveries and analytical project management,” mentions Laura Langh-Lagerlöf, Commercial Director of Langh Tech.
