Alfa Laval Win Big Korean BWTS Order

Press Release
Monday, April 08, 2013

Alfa Laval to supply its PureBallast systems to a leading shipyard in South Korea.

The order has a value of approximately SEK 50 million, and delivery will start in 2013 and be finalized in 2014.

The Alfa Laval PureBallast systems will be installed onboard vessels where they will clean the ballast water down to a limit complying with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) convention and the United States Coast Guard (USCG) legislation, before it is discharged.

“This order confirms the growing demand for our PureBallast system for new vessels”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “It is also encouraging to notice that during the last months there is an increasing interest among ship-owners for ballast water treatment for their existing fleet.”

Alfa Laval say that their  PureBallast system is the world’s first chemical-free solution for ballast water treatment that fully complies with IMO standards.

The IMO convention “International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water & Sediments” will enter into force one year after ratification by 30 states, representing 35 percent of the world’s tonnage. At this time 36 states have ratified, representing 29 percent of the world fleet. Once the convention is ratified Alfa Laval estimates that 35,000 ships will be equipped
with ballast water treatment systems during the following ten years – of which 15,000 are newly built vessels and 20,000 are existing vessels.
