JULY 29, 2016 — BAE Systems Australia has selected Evoqua Water Technologies to design and deliver technology and products that prevent marine growth in seawater cooling systems for installation in Royal Australian Navy ANZAC Class frigates.

Evoqua says its expertise and existing relationships with the Australian, U.S. and U.K. navies helped position its Chloropac system as a well suited technology for the remaining life of each ship.

Evoqua's Electrocatalytic business will deliver the Chloropac systems for installation in eight ANZAC Class frigates over the next six years.

Chloropac seawater electrochlorination systems are a proven method of preventing marine and biological fouling, generating a dilute, safe solution of sodium hypochlorite from natural seawater for direct injection into the sea water cooling circuits and sea chests.Evoqua has more than 2,500 Chloropac systems installed worldwide through its Electrocatalytic family of products.
