BWT System Recognition a Step Closer for China's PACT

Monday, October 22, 2012

Euro Tech Holdings subsidiary, PACT, reports its Ballast Water Treatment System BWTS passed a China land-based test & qualifies for sea-going tests.

PACT Environmental Technology Company Ltd. has passed the BWTS land-base test in China and has to pass a 6 month sea board test in order to get the necessary certifications before launching the system. PACT is now preparing two (300 cubic meters per hour) BWTS ready for sea board test in November.

Ballast water treatment is an imminent requirement by The International Maritime Organization ("IMO") to prevent the biological unbalance caused by the estimated 12 billion tons of ballast water transported across the seas by ocean-going ships when their ballast water tanks are emptied or refilled. The market potential for retrofits and new installations of BWTS in these old and new ocean-going ships is enormous.

Despite the hardship in last two years and worldwide slowdown economy, Euro Tech continues to invest in the Ballast Water Treatment business and is upbeat about this potential business that will generate steady revenues and incomes based on orders from retrofits and new installations from ships in future.

PACT Environmental Technology Co. Ltd., based in Shanghai, is a global provider of environmental solutions for industrial and municipal clients, focusing on water and wastewater treatment. PACT's capabilities cover design, manufacturing, sourcing, installation and servicing of water/wastewater treatment, water desalination plants and equipment.
