Major Ballast Water Management System Contract

Tuesday, February 02, 2010

OceanSaver announced the signing of the world’s first major Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) contract for large ships. Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has secured OceanSaver Ballast Water Management Systems for three supertankers (VLCCs) on order for Oman Shipping Company (OSC). The contract is the first of its kind and signifies a breakthrough for IMO’s Ballast Water Management convention as well as for OceanSaver.
 
The contract is for supply of OS BWMS 6000 EX onboard three 317,000 dwt tankers currently on order at HHI for OSC. OS BWMS 6000 EX treats 6000 m3 ballast water per hour.
 
Fit-for-purpose ballast water management systems have been the company’s sole focus since 2002. Following its successful pilot-project on car carrier Höegh Trooper in 2005, OceanSaver obtained Type Approval in April 2009.
