Global Energy Giant BP Confirms Severn Trent De Nora’s BALPURE Ballast Water Management Systems as its Preferred Solution with Large Contract Win Contract calls for 14 BALPURE systems to be installed aboard BP crude oil tankers being constructed by one of the world’s largest shipbuilders, STX Offshore & Shipbuilding.

Severn Trent De Nora, a supplier of equipment for seawater electrochlorination, has received a big order for its BALPURE ballast water management system from STX Offshore & Shipbuilding for global energy giant British Petroleum (BP). Fourteen IMO Type-Approved and USCG AMS-Certified BALPURE systems will be installed on crude oil tankers being constructed for BP by STX Offshore & Shipbuilding in Busan, South Korea, one of the world’s largest shipbuilders.

The order includes 10 BALPURE BP 3000 systems, each with treatment capacities of 3,000m3/h, which will be installed the 110,000-dwt Aframax tankers, and four BALPURE BP 4000 systems, each with treatment capacities of 4,000m3/h, which will be installed on the 160,000-dwt Suezmax tankers. The BALPURE units will be delivered to the STX shipyard for installation between February 2015 and March 2016.

According to Marwan Nesicolaci, Severn Trent De Nora’s senior vice president, Global Sales and Marketing, “We are excited to be partnering with the biggest and best companies in the energy and marine markets to deliver this order. This represents a major success for Severn Trent De Nora and serves as confirmation that BALPURE is the best ballast water treatment system for large vessels and the most prominent ship owners in the world are recognizing that this is the best product in the market. The order will be managed and delivered from our Severn Trent De Nora Shanghai hub.”

BALPURE utilizes electrolytic disinfection technology to provide a proven, reliable and economic ballast water management approach. In addition to being IMO Type-Approved and USCG AMS-Certified, the system has been Bureau Veritas Type-Approved and ABS Design Assessed.

Severn Trent De Nora has more than 3,500 electrochlorination installations in 60 countries, producing more than 1.3 million kilograms per day of sodium hypochlorite from brine and seawater. This represents more than 65 percent of the world capacity for brine electrochlorination technology.
