Bio-Sea BWTS chosen for 18,000 TEU containership

SEPTEMBER 23, 2015 — CMA-CGM has fitted its largest containership, the 18,000 TEU Vasco de Gama, with a 2,000 cu.m/h Bio-Sea 2000 BWTS supplied by French ballast water treatment specialist Bio-UV.

The U.K.-flagged Vasco de Gama has a length of 399 m and beam of 54 m.

Delivered July 27 (see earlier story) by China State Shipbuilding Corporation, it is thus largest containership ever delivered from a Chinese shipyard.

Bio-UV says it has been cooperating closely with a great number of partners, including the CMA CGM Group, in order to provide modular, reliable, innovative and energy saving ballast water management systems that are effective in all
water qualities.

The Bio-Sea system uses filtration and high power UV to treat ballast water without requiring any chemicals.
