Monday, June 11, 2012

Greek tanker operator Almi Tankers to install 'Ocean Saver' Ballast Water Treatment systems on a pair of VLCCs under construction at DSME

The two 320,000 dwt vessels will join Almi’s fleet in July 2013 and November 2014 and are designed to meet highest environmental standards.

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.

The Greek company says it chose OceanSaver after 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... (which) guarantees detailed evaluation of every aspect of vessel safety,” a spokesman said.

The Almi VLCCs are being built to ABS class and will be fitted with a 2 x 3000m3/h type approved Mark II OceanSaver system.

To date OceanSaver has installed 22 BWT systems aboard VLCCs.
