Products UsedPolytron MTC (Metal Treatment Concentrate) and Fuel Conditioner
The Pacific Radiance “Crest Odyssey” is a saturation diving support vessel boasting accommodations for 50+ workers and a 60-ton active-heave compensation crane. The company was seeking a reduction in ship operation and maintenance costs, including reduction in overall fuel consumption for the vessel’s Caterpillar 3512C High Displacement Marine Engine and generators.

An analysis team recommended Polytron MTC and Fuel Conditioners as a critical step to enhanced efficiency. When Polytron MTC and Fuel Conditioner products were introduced into engine operations, Pacific Radiance recorded an immediate and consistent 10 percent reduction in overall fuel consumption.
“The findings are confirmed by our onboard engineers and we look forward to further applications to achieve even greater savings and efficiency of our engines and onboard generators,” the company said in a statement, adding: “We recommend this technology to all vessel owners for reduced running and maintenance costs and increased engine and generator efficiency.”
