Floating on Finnish Innovation
The best innovations improve our daily lives. For instance, Sammet marine dampers are protecting the environment as ships transport precious cargo, including people, to their destinations. They ensure vessels using heavy fuel oil successfully reduce emissions and multi-fuel engines function properly. Clean Tech is a passion for Sammet and many of their innovations are driven by a commitment to sustainable solutions that deliver safe, effective and efficient performance.
In Sammet’s offices and workshops, a dedicated team of innovators is busy solving the puzzle of a cleaner future. There is no motivational music or loud chatter in the background. Instead, a dignified, Finnish silence permeates as individuals are absorbed in meeting the latest product design challenge. Mr Sami Nurminen, Product Group Manager is responsible for servicing marine customers who rely on scrubbers and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems for emissions control.
Expert marine innovators
A great deal of work goes into marine damper innovation. Sammet first developed marine dampers in collaboration with scrubber system developers, ship owners and the shipping industry to create quality products that meet high safety standards required for cruise ships. As the needs of ship owners became more sophisticated and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) focused on reducing sulphur oxide (SOx) limits on shipping fuel, Sammet began to design innovative products that form part of exhaust gas treatment systems. Their innovative Clean Flow damper systems benefit customers and the environment, while maximising energy efficiency and performance reliability. Another Sammet innovation benefiting customers is standardised damper design which allows extra features and options to be added to the same, basic product. Product parts can also be upgraded at a later stage due to the use of standardised building blocks. Similarly, standardised product documentation saves time and reduces costs because they are easy to understand and adaptable to specific customers design and application.
