Owned by French energy utility Energie and operated by Gazocean, the ship will be fitted with an OceanSaver Mk II BWT system with a treatment capacity of 2 x 3,000 cu. m per hour. OceanSaver will deliver the equipment in 2016.
"We see the contract award as an acknowledgment of our experience with retrofits to LNG carriers, and look forward to delivering this project at the highest industry standards," says Alan Linderoth, Vice President Sales & Marketing at OceanSaver.
OceanSaver's Mark II ballast water treatment system delivers high performance filtration in combination with disinfection through patented electrodialysis and has a flexible system installation.
"Our streamlined retrofit concept for efficient system installation receives positive feedback from customers. The Mark II system has a small footprint through its modular nature, which makes it perfect for retrofit," says OceanSaver Sales Manager Benjamin Pettersson.
OceanSaver's Mark II system is fully compliant with key regulations, standards and certificates, including IMO and US Coast Guard AMS.
