Optimarin received an order for 10 retrofitted Ballast Water Management Systems from Höegh Autoliners.

The contract follows previous individual orders over the past two years, with the USCG approved, UV-based technology now set to be on-board 15 ships within the firm’s advanced RoRo fleet.

The order follows less than a month after the Norwegian-headquartered supplier signed one of its biggest contracts to date, for the delivery of 36 systems to Ardmore Shipping. Optimarin has now sold well over 650 systems, with more than 500 installed and operational. Of these, over 200 have been retrofits delivered in collaboration with global engineering partners Goltens and Zeppelin.

Höegh Autoliners will receive the first of its 10units this month, with a delivery schedule that rolls out installations through to 2023. All of the Optimarin Ballast Systems (OBS) will boast 500 cu. m. capacities.
