Next Generation BWT Technology Secures Six Ships

Friday, June 17, 2011

Ciner Shipping Industry & Trading, a subsidiary within Ciner Group, one of Turkey’s growing commerce, industry and service conglomerates, has secured OceanSaver MARK II systems for two suezmax tankers at China’s Bohai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry and four bulk carriers at SPP Shipyard in Korea.

 
Twelve weeks ago OceanSaver informed the market about the launch of its next generation BWT Mark II system and goals to introduce better performing filtration technology, reduce installation cost and complexity for retrofit and newbuilding projects.
 
“The industry has responded very favourably to MARK II and OceanSaver’s high-end technology for critical ballast water treatment applications. Ciner Shipping is a new international company looking to sustain its fleet-growth ambitions of 20 - 30 bulk and tanker vessels with high quality equipment suppliers,” said Tor Atle Eiken, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing of OceanSaver.
 
The agreement is valued at around $7m and represents OceanSaver’s first bulk carrier BWT system delivery, consisting of the supply and installation of 4 sets of MARK II ballast systems, each with a treatment capacity up to 2 x 800m3/h.
 
OceanSaver has now signed major contracts for 38 BWT systems thus propelling its position as a key supplier to the global medium to large vessel fleet.
 
OceanSaver’s BWT systems are engineered and designed to meet international regulations and requirements. The company is recognised as BWT market leader with first-class maritime competence and proven, flexible system installations.
 
“Ciner evaluated different type of technologies and found OceanSaver to be the most compatible from a technical and commercial point of view. We are an environmentally focused shipping company demanding customized design and innovative component technology to optimize BWT efficiency,” said Vasileios Papakalodoukas, CEO, Ciner Shipping Industry & Trading.
 
“Additionally, the system is also approved for installations in gas hazardous areas, a prerequisite for our tanker applications,” said Papakalodoukas.
