Marine & Offshore
Vessel fleets of larger dimensions dominate today’s worldwide maritime traffic. This trend is accompanied by rising environmental requirements to counteract pollution resulting from the expanded trade and travel. The shipbuilding industry faces these technical, operational and environmental challenges and the use of plastics can assist this.
The naturally corrosion resistant nature of plastics makes it ideal for salt water environments on boats and offshore platforms and the lightweight nature of plastic pipework contributes to the quest for lighter ships to reduces the power requirements.
Plastics is ideal for additional Marine applications such as water treatment on board ships and offshore platforms, swimming pools on cruise liners, ice making onboard fishing boats, engine/propulsion cooling systems, ballast water, shipping approved drainage systems And general hot & cold water and air conditioning services for passengers, crew and those stationed on platforms.
B&D Plastics provides plastic pipework systems for all of these applications.
