Scanjet goes full steam ahead for Asia's maritime industry
Asia's maritime sector is making huge strides in global trade traffic - nine out of the top 10 busiest port cities are in the region. With 90 per cent of its business coming from Asia, Scanjet Group reinforces regional dominance in tank management and tank-cleaning systems for marine, offshore and industrial applications.
"Being a Swedish company, we strive for the highest standards of quality, design and performance," says Niklas Falkmer, managing director for the group's subsidiary Scanjet Marine. "Our products are fully approved by leading classification organisations, making us a preferred partner of ship owners and shipyards worldwide."
Operating in more than 10 countries, the company runs representative offices in China, Japan and South Korea - its focus markets. Scanjet's Singapore office also covers Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia, where it opened a branch in January this year to better serve and support its growing customers in the region. Its efficient global service network ensures quick turnaround time in after-sales service, technical support and spare parts supply.
Scanjet's main products are tank-cleaning equipment - with which it occupies 67 per cent global market share - and pressure/vacuum valves. Its Intelligent Tank Management concept features an integrated monitoring, alarm and control system to safeguard and manage the tanks safely on board the vessels.
Other special solutions are the WashTrac, which improves control and efficiency of the tank cleaning procedure, and VocTrac for vapour emission control.
The two systems ensure that the owner gets maximum benefits out of their Scanjet Tank Management System.
Scanjet seeks further growth in its industrial segment, particularly in beverage, pharmaceuticals and oil tanks. Its durability-designed tank cleaning devices span across industries, from hygienic tanks with a diameter of 50cm, to larger machines used in oil storage tanks with a diameter of more than 50 metres.
In Asia, Scanjet eyes mergers and acquisitions to expand its product lines and localised services.
