Amiad signs supply agreement with Calgon Carbon Corp. for production of ballast water treatment systems

Amiad, a global producer of water treatment and filtration solutions, announces that it has signed a long-term supply agreement with Calgon Carbon Corporation  (“Calgon Carbon”) to provide its Arkal automatic self-cleaning disc filtration technology for incorporation within Calgon Carbon’s Hyde GUARDIAN® Ballast Water Treatment Systems. The agreement was signed through the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Amiad USA, Inc., and with Hyde Marine, Inc., a subsidiary of Calgon Carbon.

“This agreement will ensure we have a guaranteed supply of pre-treatment water filtration systems which, we believe, are technically superior to other systems currently used to treat ballast water,” said James A. Sullivan, Calgon Carbon’s senior vice president – Americas. “Arkal’s disc filtration technology will perform a vital function within our system. Also, with this partnership, we will be able to leverage Amiad’s expertise to work together in developing other innovative solutions to protect the marine environment from invasive species that are transported by ballast water.”

Calgon Carbon is a global manufacturer and supplier of activated carbon and innovative treatment systems for purifying water and air and optimising production processes. Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, it has operations in North America, Europe and Asia. Calgon Carbon’s Hyde Marine group has over 30 years’ experience in the marine industry, and its systems use ultraviolet and disc filtration technology to kill or inactivate organisms contained in ships’ ballast water.

The Hyde GUARDIAN unit received International Maritime Organization (IMO) Type Approval in April 2009 and was the first ballast water treatment system accepted in the U.S. Coast Guard’s Shipboard Technology Evaluation Program.

Under the terms of this non-exclusive agreement, which has a minimum period of 10 years, the Company will supply its Arkal automatic self-cleaning disc technology for use as an integrated component of the Hyde GUARDIAN Ballast Water Treatment Systems. The combined solution will be used on both new ship builds as well as to retrofit existing ships, and will be applied to US and international carriers.
