Alfa Laval acquires Scanjet

Alfa Laval has signed an agreement to acquire Scanjet.

The agreement adds Scanjet’s intelligent tank management solutions to Alfa Laval’s tanker offering.

Scanjet is a leader in tank cleaning with over 50 years of experience. Through customer-focused product development, the company has moved from stationary and portable tank cleaning equipment to intelligent tank management. Scanjet’s solutions and organization will become part of Alfa Laval pursuant to an agreement signed on June 16, 2022.

“Scanjet is a tank cleaning innovator with exciting developments underway,” said Peter Nielsen, president of Marine Separation & Heat Transfer, whose business unit will receive the acquisition. “For tanker owners and many other maritime customers, there will be valuable synergies when Scanjet solutions enter Alfa Laval’s portfolio.”

“Alfa Laval is the perfect place for Scanjet’s journey to continue,” said Magnus Wallin, CEO of Scanjet. “Our companies provide industry-leading marine offerings that complement and reinforce each other. Above all, we share the ambition to exceed customer needs.

In addition to tank cleaning equipment, Scanjet’s offering includes the unique ITAMA system for intelligent tank management. The system integrates key aspects of tank maintenance, from tank cleaning to real-time monitoring of tank level, temperature and pressure.

“In addition to protecting the cargo and the vessel, optimized tank management contributes to sustainable navigation,” Nielsen said. “For example, it reduces the water and energy consumption associated with cleaning the tanks. By bringing together all tank-related solutions within the Alfa Laval portfolio, we will be able to support efficiency in all aspects of cargo handling.

“We look forward to being part of an even bigger team,” added Wallin. “Scanjet customers have long valued our ongoing support, and our capabilities will be amplified by Alfa Laval’s own global organization. Together, we will have a strong offering for tanker owners and new opportunities to serve them well over time.
