    SKF demonstrates its capabilities as a 'one-stop shop' for the marine trades and maritime industries who will gather together at one of the sector's key events in Norway this Summer

    Gothenburg, Sweden, 26 April 2017: The marine sector is fast becoming a key market for specialist products and services. SKF has served the industry for many years and its portfolio of products and services has not only kept pace with, but also moved ahead of developments within the sector.

    The company's showing at this year's Nor-Shipping (Lillestrøm, Norway, May 30 - June 2) will demonstrate how SKF's innovative products meet the challenges of this market, saving costs and enhancing the reliability and availability of essential equipment. The message for the industry is: “Simplify with SKF Marine”.

    Taking a prominent position in booth E03-21 at the Norges Varemesse will be SKF’s innovative BlueMon GPS based emissions and environmental monitoring system which addresses the requirements of MARPOL, the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, and specifically those of MARPOL 73/78 Annex VI - air pollution from ocean-going ships.

    Sharing space in the booth are SKF's new hydraulic Quickgrip Bolts for flange connections, which make maintenance for shaft couplings faster, easier and safer, and SKF's new Enlight Centre, a next-generation Internet-enabled, condition-based maintenance and condition monitoring software solution specifically targeted at the global marine industry.

    Also on display are SKF's Condition Monitoring Route Kit (which will include the Enlight Centre Ecosystem), SKF's wire rope lubricator, a Simplex Airspace sterntube seal, a separable, high-capacity coated roller bearing and Cooper split bearing, and the novel Turbulo Sludge Buoy, a mechanical device that separates oil and water and avoids the need for manual drainage.

    “Simplify with SKF Marine” is a global campaign to present SKF Marine as the contact partner and expert of choice for the marine sector. SKF's marine portfolio is extensive and the company can truly claim to be a 'one-stop shop' for this vitally important growth industry.
