CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov 5, 2012) - Genoil Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GNO)(GNOLF) is pleased to announce that it has granted marketing, manufacturing and distribution rights to Donghwa Entec, a reputable Korean manufacturer of marine equipment. The rights pertain to the Crystal Sea oily-water separators designed for the new shipbuilding industry together with retrofitting of existing ships. Genoil models feature one of the most compact bilge separators worldwide with throughputs ranging from 0.25 m3/hr. capacity to 10 m3/hr. units.
Donghwa Entec, being one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of marine heat exchangers worldwide, is in an ideal position to market and manufacture Crystal Sea separators. Donghwa Entec has a significant market share of heat exchangers in Korean, Japanese and Chinese shipyards which collectively control over 90% of the shipbuilding industry. This is particularly important in that Donghwa Entec is heavily involved in the retrofit market for heat exchangers, making it an ideal partner for Genoil to deal with the retrofit market for oil-water separators on existing ships.
The contract recently signed with Donghwa Entec also licenses Donghwa Entec to be the sole manufacturer of Crystal Sea separators. Donghwa Entec has been selected as Genoil''s exclusive manufacturer due to its superior manufacturing capabilities, high productivity and quality control. Donghwa Entec is certified by ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ABS, DNV, BV, Lloyd Register, Germanischer Lloyd, ASME and has also obtained numerous awards of excellence in Korea. Donghwa Entec recently obtained MED Module D certification issued by ABS for manufacturing Crystal Sea separators in accordance with European Union standards.
In developing Crystal Sea separators Genoil''s efforts were aimed at bringing to the market a unique product that is capable of removing oil without using filters. Unlike conventional separators, Crystal Sea is capable of achieving excellent purity of the water through mechanical separation alone and no moving parts. This is further verified as Crystal Sea has been approved and tested by the US Coast Guard to permit our units to be placed on all ships arriving at US ports. Apart from greater reliability and ease of operation, the Crystal Sea units feature very low operating and maintenance costs which were proven during extensive tests onboard a 330,000 TWD super tanker over a period of 2 years.
David Lifschultz, Genoil''s Chairman, stated: "I am delighted that after extensive analysis and research that Genoil has entered into a manufacturing and marketing agreement with such a high quality firm as Donghwa Entec. It is a major player in the shipping and retrofit market in heat exchangers and we trust that our oily-water separator will be a real complement to their existing market."
