Optimarin Signs BWTS Agreement with DOF

press release
Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Optimarin signs a BWTS frame agreement with DOF, one of the largest offshore-shipping companies in the world.


Optimarin, a provider of simple and flexible Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) systems for the global maritime industry, has signed a framework agreement with DOF for the delivery of BWT systems. The agreement establishes the terms governing contracts to be awarded within 2012 to 2015, in particular price and delivery. The bulk of the contracts are retrofit, but Optimarin confirms options for newbuildings.

 

DOF is an international group of companies that own and operate a modern fleet of 75 PSV, AHTS CSV and Subsea ROV vessels. DOF has a multi-national workforce in excess of 3,392 personnel. The company's offshore operations are supported out of the North Sea, Africa, Brazil, Argentine, Gulf of Mexico and Asia Pacific. “This agreement shows that Optimarin’s commitment to provide the full scope of high-efficiency BWT systems and related services creates value for a global company like DOF that is focused on safety, reliability, and operational efficiency. The majority of the retrofit business will coincide with DOF drydocking agendas during 2012 to 2015,” said Tore Andersen, Director, Optimarin.

 

Optimarin is driving market standards for BWT performance and the DOF agreement represents significant supply and business, but also reinforces the company’s reputation as a market leading BWT systems supplier to the shipping and offshore-shipping sectors. “This framework agreement initiates a long term relationship with DOF whereby we will be working closely together to deliver solutions to meet their operational demands. DOF is operating worldwide and most likely drydocking activities will be in Asia, Far East, Brazil and the North Sea,” says Andersen. The agreement saves DOF substantial time and cost of repeat negotiations, but, most importantly, it gives DOF contractual certainty while creating a structure needed to measure and improve fleet-wide BWT performance.

 

“Optimarin is optimal technology and a standardized BWT system solution. Our system is very modular, easy to install and requires a small footprint. These are key advantages when serving DOF’s retrofit demands where some installations will be made under vessel operation or during extremely tight drydock deadlines,” says Andersen.
