Times Navigation, Inc. has selected Ecochlor, Inc. to provide ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) for installation on a fleet of eight new CROWN63 (63,500 DWT) ultra-max bulk carriers that will be constructed at SINOPACIFIC Shipbuilding Group.
Ecochlor’s President, Tom Perlich, said, “We are very pleased to be working with Times Navigation and their advisors, United Naval Architects Ltd. (UNA). Times Navigation is clearly committed to protecting the coastal environment, and they are taking proactive steps to ensure the Company’s continuing compliance with U.S. and international regulations. The effectiveness of the Ecochlor BWTS will ensure that Times Navigation will be in compliance with all current and future performance standards.”

Ultimately, the Times Navigation decision was based upon their confidence in Ecochlor’s ability to secure United States Coast Guard Type Approval for its ballast water treatment solutions.”
