CLEARWINNER D-BUG - fuel biocide / CLEARWINNER HYDROS LA88 - Marine fuel treatment
Chatham based GPS Marine Contractors Ltd., operate a substantial fleet of workboats, which include tugs, barges and dredgers. GPS operations also extend to Spain and The Netherlands.
During the period of 2013 to the latter part of 2014, regular incidences of fuel contamination issues in many of GPS’s vessels were being experienced, resulting in engine component, fuel pump and injector damage. GPS Marine Superintendent, Leon Smythe, comments :
“For many months we were experiencing major issues with Diesel fuel “bug” manifestation in fuel storage tanks; water contamination was another major problem for us.
In October 2014 we started applying CLEARWINNER D-BUG fuel biocide, in conjunction with their HYDROS LA88 fuel additive / water dispersant. The beneficial effect of dosing these products into our fuel storage tanks, was immediate.
December 2014 and January 2015 were the first months in the past 12 months that our engineers could actually report trouble free operations on those vessels that had previously been having problems.
I can strongly recommend CLEARWINNER’s Marine product range to other workboat operators – their products have done a fantastic job and resulted in a substantial financial saving for GPS, in terms of replacement components and down-time.”
