FACET’S EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN THE MARINE INDUSTRY HAS ENABLED TO BE SELECTED AS THE CHOSEN PROVIDER OF WATER TREATMENT AND FUEL FILTRATION SOLUTIONS FOR THE NAVIES NEW MINEHUNTERS.
Framed on the programs for the renewal of their respective Navies, Belgian and Dutch Defense Ministries have awarded the contract to manufacturing 12 minehunters to a consortium formed by Naval Group and Piriou.
These vessels will serve as motherships to more than a hundred underwater, surface and aerial drones entirely dedicated to faster mine hunting, enabling a dramatic reduction of crew exposure to high risk situations.
Equipped with Facet MPak® coalescing plates, and with a more than proven efficiency in both commercial and military applications, Facet will develop and supply tailored, shock proof solutions for the treatment of bilge and sewage water.
Additionally, as a world leader in fuel filtration solutions, Facet provided custom designed, shock proof pumping and supply fuel filtration systems, which will provide safe, clean fuel both to aerial and marine drones.
Naval Group and Piriou positively evaluated that Facet’s technologies have:
• Simple and compact design
• Small footprint, quick and easy installation with high adaptation possibilities to available space onboard
Furthermore, the installation of Facet products aid in reducing operating costs, as no chemical consumables are needed and maintenance and operation tasks are quick and easy.
