Greek VLCC Ballast Water Treatment Contract Goes to OceanSaver

(Press Release)
Friday, June 01, 2012

Greek oil tanker operator, Almi Tankers S.A. has chosen OceanSaver Ballast Water Treatment solutions for its VLCCs currently under construction at Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd.

 

The 320,000 dwt vessels will join Almi’s fleet in July 2013 and November 2014 and are designed to exceed high environmental standards, reflecting client demand for clean & green operation. Almi Tankers currently manages two Aframax LR2 vessels and three newly-built Suezmax Crude Oil Carriers and is expecting the delivery of seven more Suezmaxes and two VLCCs by November 2014.

 

Almi confirms the decision to choose OceanSaver follows a thorough evaluation of the company’s Mark I and Mark II BWT technology and competing suppliers.

 

OceanSaver BWT systems are backed by DNV’s Type Approval Program. This type approval guarantees detailed evaluation of every aspect of vessel safety including the power balance of the vessel, installation procedures for the ballast tanks, and the thorough testing of ballasting sequences,” an Almi Tankers representative said.

 

“Though encountering start up challenges, OceanSaver BWT technology confirms superior component quality and reliability.  Its customized and innovative BWT solutions help us optimize lifecycle costs, improve ship performance and ultimately deliver the best service possible to very environmentally-conscious clients.” 

 

It is Almi’s first contract with OceanSaver and the contract illustrates their confidence and expectations in OceanSaver.

 

“OceanSaver’s high quality BWT equipment and hands-on experience from 22 VLCC BWT contracts are important parameters giving us the confidence that we have chosen a leading product and BWT supplier,” concluded the same Almi Tankers representative.
 

Almi’s VLCCs are being built to ABS class and will be fitted with a 2 x 3000m3/h type approved Mark II OceanSaver system. The first system will be commissioned in 2012 and incorporate OceanSaver’s second generation design engineered for reliability, low maintenance requirements and low power consumption.

 

“The ability to provide a range of treatment options sets OceanSaver apart from other equipment manufacturers. While most claim a modular approach, OceanSaver additionally offers a range of equipment, materials and designs to create the best possible solution for each vessel. The optional addition of a de-oxygenation step, for example, enables owners to incorporate corrosion mitigation into their operation and maintenance goals,” says Tor Atle Eiken, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing, OceanSaver.
