SeaCURE Gains Korean Exposure
Evoqua Water Technologies’ partnership with Krosys was strengthened with the unveiling of a SeaCURE Ballast Water Treatment System during the Kormarine 2017 exhibition in Busan, South Korea.
The development represents another success for both companies, following the order Krosys secured earlier this year for SeaCURE systems to two 115,000 dwt crude oil tankers destined for Singaporean interests.
Krosys serves the Korean market from its facility in Busan, in the heart of South Korea’s ship building industry. To date, the business has delivered more than 2000 fresh water generators and is a dominant supplier of reverse osmosis (RO) fresh water generators for the Korean navy. It can now add ballast water treatment to that list.
The ballast water treatment system utilizes a process that injects biocide into ballast seawater before it reaches the large surface filter intakes to reduce the growth marine organisms that become harmful to filters.
Available as a compact skid or as modular components, the system is suitable as a newbuild or retrofit installation since biocide generation takes place in small side streams from the main ballast water thus reducing system footprint and optimizing available space. It can also be configured to provide marine growth protection for critical onboard seawater cooling systems.
