Bremen – After careful comparison and in-depth analysis, German owner Hansa Shipping and Chinese shipyard Jiangsu New Yangzi Shipbuilding have decided to equip four new 4,800 TEU vessels with the German ballast water treatment technology CleanBallast® by RWO, a subsidiary of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies.
The plants will be delivered during the course of 2012.
“We have picked RWO knowing that we are dealing with a sensitive and important task for the Future,” said Dejan Golub, Superintendent of Hansa Shipping GmbH & CO KG. “RWO has long and comprehensive knowledge, as well as sustainable experience in marine water processing. Therefore, we are absolutely convinced that we will have the right partner in achieving excellent performance. “We trust that the technical solution of the RWO system, using a reliable, powerful and redundant filtration system, together with the well proven electrochemical disinfection unit, will bring us the benefit of meeting even stricter requirements than the present ones.”
In addition to the CleanBallast® ballast water treatment systems, Hansa Shipping GmbH has decided to complete the water treatment system of the new vessels with further one-stop-shop solutions. For onboard sewage treatment, RWO’sWWT-LC plants will be installed, as well as its oil-water separators SKIT/S-DEB to ensure best results in treating oily water.
