Offshore & marine Sustainability

Efficiency through environmental awareness

Protecting the oceans has become increasingly important in recent decades. With our work at DEVA, we are actively committed to environmental protection and sustainability.

DEVA offers a portfolio of extensively self-lubricating, seawater-resistant, and also DNV-tested solutions.
The particular advantage of using maintenance-free, self-lubricating bearing materials is that lubricants such as oil and greases can be reduced or eliminated. That safeguards the environment without having to forgo performance.
