Auramarine Ltd, manufacturer of heavy fuel oil supply systems and other auxiliary units for marine and power station engines, is now applying its wide-ranging experience in liquid flows to a new sector that benefits the environment.

Auramarine is bringing out Auramarine Crystal Ballast, Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS). Due to technological innovations featured in this system, it is energy-efficient, compact and easy to install. Additionally, Auramarine's solution does not affect the time required for ballasting or de-ballasting operations, or increase the duration of port calls.

The project is currently entering an intensive type approval testing phase. It is progressing on the projected schedule, and the first system type approvals and final products are expected to reach the market in the second half of 2010. Up to year 2019, the market potential is estimated to be substantial, as around 50,000 ships should be equipped with BWTS.
