Centrifuges Un-Limited reports high interest in Elvos® system
Wednesday, Jan 30, 2013
Aberdeen-based oil and gas service company Centrifuges Un-Limited is reporting significant interest in its new treatment system.
Since its recent launch and onshore trials, the Elvos® slops treatment system has generated considerable interest from major oil and gas operators keen to try out the integrated solution offered by this process of mechanical separation.
Elvos® offers a flexible system capable of being modified to clean waste at source in various onshore and offshore environments, thus reducing the logistics which currently surround transporting and handling waste between these locations and environmental centres. The process focuses on the liquid part of the waste and uses specially-developed mechanical separation techniques which have been fine-tuned during the system’s ten-year development to clean waste sufficiently for it to be returned to the sewer or sea.
Commenting on the interest in Elvos ® Centrifuges Un-Limited managing director Jim Shiach said: “I have always wanted to find a way of treating and cleaning fluids at source and I am delighted that we have been able to introduce this new system to the market.
“We have been working on Elvos® for a decade now and ongoing investment has included £300,000 this year alone. Following successful onshore trials, the system is now being tested by a major North Sea operator in an offshore environment.”
He added: “The system is already exceeding our expectations and we are confident that this will allow current company growth to continue.”
In addition to Elvos®, Centrifuges Un-Limited specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of a range of equipment including fuel/oily water separators, mud coolers for high pressure high temperature (HPHT) fluid management. Key markets include Norway, Egypt, Brazil, the Middle East and North Africa as well as the UK and clients include major operators, drilling contractors and waste management companies.
The company, which employs 23 people and is based at Dyce, Aberdeen – recently announced that turnover had grown to £3.2 million.
