Hyde Marine & Cammel Laird in BWTS Link Up

September 30, 2013

Calgon Carbon Corporation subsiduary Hyde Marine, Inc., has established a partnership agreement with Cammell Laird, the largest shipyard in the United Kingdom, for installation of the chemical free Hyde GUARDIAN® (HG) Ballast Water Treatment (BWTS) System.

Cammell Laird had previously been tapped by the Royal Navy–Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) for installation of Hyde GUARDIAN systems ranging from 150m3/hr to 1000m3/hr onto five naval vessels. The most recent installation was a complex retrofit in June 2013 of a HG1000X onboard the RFA's Fast Fleet Tanker "Wave Ruler" at Cammell Laird's Birkenhead yard.

According to John Platz, President, Hyde Marine, the partnership agreement means that the Merseyside, UK-based Cammell Laird is ready to install Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS systems for a wide variety of vessel types.

The Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS process uses efficient filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships' ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port. In April 2013, Hyde GUARDIAN became one of the first BWTS to earn Alternate Management System (AMS) approval from the United States Coast Guard (USCG). It also received International Maritime Organization (IMO) Type Approval in April 2009 and has Type Approvals from several Class Societies.
