Martechnic Supports Environmental Organizations “WWF” and “Clean River Project” with Christmas Donations
As a small family-owned business, Martechnic has always been commited to the best possible implementation of Environmental, Social, Governannce (ESG) practices and activities into its internal business development strategy. The company established an environmental management system and is certified to ISO 14001:2015 since 2015. In December 2021 Martechnic joined the IMPA Green Business Bureau Program and regularly sets new goals for improving its environmental performance and impact, e.g. reducing energy consumption, optimizing its waste mangement program and reducing emisisions as well as supporting social communitiy initiatives etc. to become a more efficient and sustainable business.
In the run-up to Christmas, Martechnic traditionally supports non-profit organizations and projects financially that priorotize environmental sustainability and promote the protection of the environment and biodiversity.
As in previous years, Martechnic supports the Christmas campaign of the WWF “Donations instead of Gifts 2023”. As a team, we are firmly convinced, that our long-term environmental responsibility is not only restrictied to compliance with the corresponding environmental legislation, but it also implies active contribution to achieve common environmental goals.
This year we also support the outstanding engagement of the Clean River Projects in clearing plastic and other waste from rivers across Germany, thereby improving the overall state of the environment and promoting public awareness of the pollution problem. Martechnic considers local initatives and projects that promote the conscious use of plastic as a recyclable material as crucial to educate the younger generation about plastic pollution and to prevent and to reduce the impact of plastic on the environment.
Martechnic is Exhibiting at Europort 2023
The international maritime exhibition Europort in the city of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, is one of the world’s largest meeting and knowledge sharing platforms of the global shipping industry. The exceptional location of the exhibition with its special focus on complex shipbuilding inkl. high-tech ships provides an excellent opportunity for showcasing innovative projects and technology especially in the challenging times of maritime transition.
Martechnic will be exhibiting as a part of a shared meeting area of the German Pavilion at Hall 7, Booth 7015. We will be sharing our strong expertise of over 25 years in on-site condition monitoring of fuel, lube and hydraulic oil and showcasing our products for easy on-board testing & analysis (portable test devices and test kits, intelligent sensor technology etc.). Our precise testing equipment helps engineers and maintenance personnel to directly assess oil health and condition and to support the vessel’s optimal, reliable and cost-effective operation by making well-informed condition-based maintenance decisions.
At Europort Martechnic will be introducing its innovative, patent pending test device MT COOLANT CHECK designed for routine assessment of the engine coolant quality in the global shipping sector and beyond. Instead of a full-scale conventional chemical analysis of individual coolant parameters, the novel measurement method of the MT COOLANT CHECK offers a non-chemical and environmentally friendly engine coolant analysis by means of an electrotechnical apparatus with constant (corrosion resistant) and working/changeable (corrosion-prone) electrodes in a simulated cooling system. Both electrodes are subjected to corrosion stress by applying electrical voltage, and the performance of the engine coolant is characterized in relation to its existing level of corrosion protection with the new unit of measurement: “MT unit” (“Lagner”).
Martechnic Wins the 2023 Ship Technology Excellence Awards in the Category “INNOVATION“
We are excited to announce that Martechnic is a Category Award Winner in the 2023 Ship Technology Excellence Awards 2023 for INNOVATION due to its work in developing the new testing equipment MT COOLANT CHECK for predictive maintenance of engine cooling system.
The patent pending test device MT COOLANT CHECK offers innovative, non-chemical and environmentally friendly approach to regular on-site assessment of the engine coolant quality in the global shipping sector and beyond that is not yet available on the market.
The novel measuring method of the MT COOLANT CHECK applies the electrotechnical apparatus with electrodes in a simulated cooling system to quickly and reliably detect the gradual deterioration in anti-corrosion performance of the engine coolant. Instead of complex physical and/or chemical analyses of individual parameters (pH, chlorides, nitrite additives etc.), the protection capacity of the engine coolant is measured on the metals used in the cooling system.
The environmental benefits of the MT COOLANT CHECK include no need for the use of (hazardous) reagents as well as the overall reduction of the environmental impact in engine cooling system predictive maintenance practices.
The Ship Technology Excellence Awards is an independent recognition programme powered by the business intelligence of GlobalData.

Martechnic to Exhibit at Nor-Shipping 2023 at the German Pavilion
Nor-Shipping is an exceptional arena where leading Norwegian and international companies within the maritime and ocean business environements meet every two years to discuss crucial issues of sustainable ocean development goals, future opportunities and challenges as well as new business solutions through networking and partnerships on different projects. A special focus of the exhibition is the innovations that provide efficient solutions and competitive advantage for the customers.
Martechnic will be showcasing its innovative technical solution MT COOLANT CHECK at the joint exhibition stand of the German Pavilion: Hall C, Stand Nr. C01-06 Block F, F3. The patent pending test device MT COOLANT CHECK was developed for engine cooling system predictive maintenance in the global shipping sector and beyond. Instead of complex physical and/or chemical analysis of individual parameters (pH, chlorides, nitrite additives etc.), the MT COOLANT CHECK offers a completely different, non-chemical and environmentally friendly approach to regular on-site assessment of the engine coolant quality.
The innovative measurement method of the test device is based on the use electrotechnical apparatus with constant (corrosion resistant) and working (corrosion-prone) electrodes in a simulated engine cooling system. By applying electrical features, both electrodes are subjected to corrosion stress, and the protection capacity of the engine coolant is measured on the metals used in the cooling system. Therefore, the MT COOLANT CHECK allows users to quickly and reliably detect the gradual deterioration in anti-corrosion performance of the engine coolant before the analyses of the chemical composition and physical properties allow any conclusions to be drawn.
