Unique Group’s Marine and Subsea division has signed an exclusive global distribution agreement with the Norwegian company Wågene Purifiner Technology AS. As a part of the agreement, Unique Group will house a central inventory in each continent and supply Wågene oil purification equipment to maritime customers worldwide. The company will also maintain an aftermarket stock of filter elements and spare parts.
Wågene Purifiner Technology AS has for more than 20 years manufactured and sold Purifiner oil purification equipment to the shipping, offshore and land-based markets worldwide and has delivered to more than 3,000 shipping facilities.
Wågene`s oil purification technique has received great recognition for its continuous oil purification system and has helped shipping companies save on operating costs. It is known that 80% of all accidents in an oil system are due to contamination by particles and water. Purifiner cleans the oil and removes all the particles as well as evaporates the water content including emulsified water in the oil, and with continuous use, it improves the life of the oil significantly.
Unique Group has over 500 employees in their global offices located in USA, UK, Europe, Singapore, Australia, India, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE. They provide unparalleled range of equipment and technical expertise across the global oil and gas, renewables, subsea and defence industries. The world has witnessed an ever-growing market for green technology in all areas, where continuous oil maintenance is one of the focus areas. In addition, the world’s fleet will switch more and more to EAL or bio-oil, which increases the cost of the shipping company as this type of oil is much more expensive than ordinary mineral and synthetic oil. It is therefore important to extend the life of the oil.
For Wågene, the sales collaboration with Unique Group means a significant opportunity for greater growth in the years ahead. The global presence of Unique Group in all leading locations provides Wågene better proximity to various markets in the world, and for the customer a quicker supply from a more local supplier in each part of the world.
