Hyde Marine, Goltens Enter Engineering Agreement

Hyde Marine, Inc., announced today it has launched an agreement with Goltens Green Technologies division to help shipowners determine how to best fit the chemical free Hyde GUARDIAN Gold Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) onto its existing vessels.

Hyde Marine’s partnership with Goltens will allow shipowners to benefit from precision 3D laser scanning and modeling, which helps eliminate complications during the BWTS installation process on existing vessels. Laser scanning provides an accurate and efficient solution for fitting BWT systems onboard and mitigates risks associated with manual measurement and fabrication onboard.

Hyde Marine, a wholly owned subsidiary of Calgon Carbon Corporation, is one of the world’s fastest growing ballast water treatment (BWT) technology companies. It will work with Goltens’ six green stations worldwide for the engineering of the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold ballast water treatment process, which uses efficient filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships' ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port.

Goltens’ Green stations include locations in Oslo, Miami, Dubai, Singapore, Shanghai, and in Groningen, Netherlands, where the green division is based. The division is an operating unit of Goltens, a service organization that enables shipowners to minimize downtime via diesel services, in-situ machining, and by implementing green technologies.

“By selecting Goltens as a strategic ballast water treatment engineering partner, Hyde Marine will help shipowners accurately determine the proper space necessary for installation of a ballast water treatment system, which will enable them to comply with approaching ballast water treatment regulations,” said John Platz, President, Hyde Marine, Inc.

In 2004, the IMO adopted the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments (BWMC), which requires ships to conduct a ballast water exchange or to meet concentration-based ballast water discharge standards at ports with ballast tanks 99.99% free of living organisms and pathogens.

“We are looking forward to helping advance Hyde Marine’s objectives in the maritime marketplace,” said Jurrien Baretta, Business Development Manager, Goltens Green Technologies B.V. “Our team is pleased to work alongside Hyde Marine to help shipowners through our vast experience in engineering and maintaining critical equipment, such as ballast water treatment systems.”
