AUGUST 29, 2016 — Alfa Laval continues to develop and expand its line of PureBallast ballast water management systems (BWMS).
A new skid-mounted PureBallast 3.1/300 Compact will be on display at SMM 2016. Self-contained and ready to install, the system is said to be the market's smallest ballast water treatment solution for flows up to 300 cu.m/h, but offers the same reliable biological disinfection performance as its larger PureBallast counterparts.
"PureBallast 3.1/300 Compact is a direct response to shipyards, who are calling for ready-to-install solutions," says Anders Lindmark, General Manager, Business Center PureBallast. "Minimal footprint and simplified pipework make the installation of a PureBallast Compact solution truly plug-and-play. That will be increasingly valuable as the market expands, especially when the retrofit market gains speed."
Alfa Laval has also expanded and consolidated its range of services for PureBallast.
The Alfa Laval 360° Service Portfolio contains a selection of services to secure lasting performance, ranging from Installation Supervision and Calibration to in-depth Performance Audits.
For vessels whose systems have been inactive, there is even a Recommissioning Service to restore performance and prevent potential damage at start-up.
Individual services can be combined in a customer-specific Alfa Laval Performance Agreement. Alfa Laval has put together predefined packages for annual inspection and service that simplify the process and provide even greater economy.
"The packages aim to make peace of mind convenient and affordable," says Carl Kesselmark, Service Development Manager for PureBallast. "Between the two packages, customers get all the most essential PureBallast services at a very reasonable cost."
Mr.Lindmark points out that the technical and service developments are both part of a larger continuous effort.
As ratification of IMO's Ballast Water Management (BWM) Convention edges closer, Alfa Laval is actively working to support the full range of needs that will soon become urgent.
"We will continue to strengthen our PureBallast offering from every perspective," says Mr. Lindmark. "Alfa Laval customers can count on the best installation support, the best compliance solutions and the best service coverage on the market."
