RWO Reports a Healthy Interest in CleanBallast System

Press Release
Wednesday, January 30, 2013

After RWO’s CleanBallast system was considered as the first choice by Canadian shipowner Seaspan, the Bremen-based marine water treatment expert is proud to announce further contracts for its ballast water treatment system for Belgian and Canadian shipowners.

 

Canada’s Canfornav will install the RWO system on four 36,000dwt bulk carriers at Yangfan shipyard, and another four CleanBallast units are destined for 38,000t LPG carriers built at Hyundai Mipo Dockyards for Belgium’s Exmar.


“The IMO Convention for ballast water treatment will be an important issue on every shipowner’s desk this year. In our discussions with owners, managers, engineers and yards, we have seen that there is great attention, huge interest and focus on an established and proven technology, especially in a market such as ballast water treatment, which is overshadowed by some dark clouds,” commented PeterWolf, Director of Sales & Marketing at RWO on the contracts. “The positive longterm experience of the CleanBallast technology, without any negative surprises during start-up or commercial operation, and the continuity of our design without having changed the process since we launched CleanBallast on the market, offer important features. Regarding customer’s feedback, we have found that the well-conceived treatment concept of our product, very low power consumption, having gone beyond IMO compliance and the potential to upgrade CleanBallast for even tighter standards are convincing points, too”.


RWO GmbH, a subsidiary of VeoliaWater Solutions and Technologies, recently announced the order of well-known Canadian owners Seaspan to equip their SAVER-class container vessels with the RWO ballast water treatment system. Taking into account the latest orders, RWO has notched up deals for more than 30 CleanBallast units within only a few weeks and keeps its order book growing steadily. CleanBallast systems having been selected by customers from all over the world. Customers in Belgium, China, Canada, Cyprus, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and the Netherlands have already selected CleanBallast systems for a variety of vessels including container, bulker, heavy lift, RoCon, multi-purpose and tankers. The CleanBallast technology gained official type approval from the German BSH in 2010, and was submitted for AMS and USCG approval in mid-2012.
