Alfa Laval has signed an agreement to acquire Scanjet.

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

Scanjet is a leader in tank cleaning and possesses more than 50 years of experience. Through customer-driven product development, the company has expanded from fixed and portable tank cleaning equipment into intelligent tank management. Scanjet’s solutions and organisation will become part of Alfa Laval per an agreement signed on 16 June 2022.

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

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

In addition to tank cleaning equipment, Scanjet’s offering comprises 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.

“Besides safeguarding the cargo and vessel, optimised tank management contributes to sustainable shipping,” said Nielsen. “For example, it reduces the water and energy consumption connected with tank cleaning. By gathering all tank-related solutions within the Alfa Laval portfolio, we will be able to support efficiency in every angle of cargo handling.”

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