Heerema Marine Contractors, who own the world’s largest semi-submersible crane vessels in the offshore energy industry, has signed a contract to install Techcross’ ECS units in six vessels and barges
The deal to supply ballast water treatment systems to six of Heerema’s semi-submersible crane vessels came after delivery of two sets of Techcross ECS 6000B units for a European heavy lift vessel in November 2020.
Techcross noted that the latest transaction reinforces its position as a leading supplier to large capacity vessels in the European market through successive orders from the three largest global offshore mega carriers, mainly in northern Europe.
The contracted vessels are two semi-submersible crane vessels and four barges. These vessels are designed to transport, lift and install heavy cargo on various coasts distributed around the world.
The Techcross products to be installed are ECS 3000B, ECS 2000B, and ECS 1000B, with one, two or four sets installed on each vessel. One of these vessels has 12,000 tonnes of capacity, showing Techcross’ suitability for large vessels.
Techcross said its ECS BWMS received credit for its easy installation, large capacity treatment performance, and as its after-sales service network can be provided anytime, anywhere. The products will be delivered sequentially from February and will be completed by November 2021.
“We are happy to have won this large order at the end of 2020,” said a Techcross sales representative.
