Hyde Marine, Inc. has introduced the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold™ Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS), which they claim offers the smallest footprint of any BWTS in the maritime industry.

The IMO Type-approved Hyde GUARDIAN Gold provides a 50 percent reduction in footprint with its new filter. The system is ideal they say for retrofits as it provides the compact size required by a growing number of ship owners and operators, while still maintaining the robust construction and technological specifications necessary to meet stringent ballast water treatment (BWT) regulations.

While the footprint for the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold is 50 percent smaller, the unit features a number of distinct advantages, including continuous and increased flow to tanks during ballasting, ability to handle heavy organic and sediment loading, and up to a 30 percent reduction in peak power consumption.

The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS is an effective and reliable solution that combines efficient filtration and Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection. Standard systems are available for flow rates from 60 m3/hr up to 6,000 m3/hr. With its ability to be skid mounted, the system can be easily installed in existing ships where retrofits are required in crowded machinery spaces or in new ship construction.

Commenting on the announcement, John Platz, President, Hyde Marine, said, “As a technical leader in ballast water treatment, Hyde Marine remains on the forefront of innovation. The addition of the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold to our suite of maritime solutions will help the growing numbers of ship owners and operators facing compliance deadlines meet their ballast water treatment requirements, particularly for retrofits and those vessels with limited space.”
