Hyde Guardian for China Newbuild

Thursday, August 06, 2009

Hyde Marine, Inc., a leading marine environmental equipment supplier has won a contract for a Hyde Guardian ballast water treatment system from the CSC Chongqing Dongfeng Shipbuilding Corporation. The system will be delivered to the shipyard in early 2010 and installed on a 368 TEU Container ship for US owner, Tropical Shipping with ship delivery scheduled for early 2011.

The 250 m3/hr Hyde Guardian system was chosen by the shipyard based on its IMO type approval, competitive pricing, compact and modular design, low power demand, and its demonstrated effectiveness and reliability. The system is fully automatic and will be integrated into the ship’s ballast control system.

The Hyde Guardian received IMO type approval from the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) issued by Lloyds Register in April 2009.

During MEPC 59 in London in July 2009, the IMO determined that sufficient type approved technologies are currently available for ships constructed in 2010 and, therefore, no changes to Assembly Resolution A.1005(25) are needed. This should help to speed the ratification and implementation of the Ballast Water Management Convention.
