RWO Obtains Ballast Water Treatment Order

(Press Release)
Wednesday, May 30, 2012

With a new order,  RWO GmbH, a subsidiary of VeoliaWater Solutions & Technologies, has entered the bulker market with its ballast water treatment system CleanBallast.

 

Hong Kong-based shipowner Bohandymar, a subsidiary of the CMB group, has ordered 1,500 m³/hr CleanBallast systems to be installed aboard their handysize ECO-type bulk vessels.

"The business relationship of Bocimar and RWO has existed for several years. During that time we have always been satisfied with the excellent quality and high technological standards of their products. The offer of a highly engineered system for treating ballast water was certainly well considered and we finally found RWO’s CleanBallast technology to be the very best choice" said Andrzej Wasilewski, Technical Manager at Bocimar.

The type-approved CleanBallast® technology is one of the very few that has been extensively tested in and designed for real-life conditions, an utmost essential prerequisite in order to guarantee a rapid and reliable intake of ballast water. The efficient removal of the sediments also considerably lowers tank-cleaning costs, prevents the loss of valuable load capacities and furthermore leads to fuel savings.

Currently, 38 CleanBallast® systems have already been successfully put into commercial operation. The start-up of most of these units took place in China where they were tested with water from the Yangtze River, one of the most difficult ballast waters in the world.
