An undisclosed shipowner has contracted PG Flow Solutions to supply a new ballast water treatment system (BWTS) to seven of its offshore support vessels
PG Flow Solutions’ latest order comes in addition to 16 previous ballast water treatment system orders from the same shipowner.
Under the latest contract, PG Flow Solutions will supply five 250 m3 per hour and two 1,000 m3 per hour, IMO and USCG type-approved PG-Hyde ballast water treatment systems to the seven offshore support vessels.
The PG-Hyde BWTS is based on medium-pressure UV technology in combination with automatic, self-cleaning filters. It sterilises the ballast water at both ballasting and de-ballasting, ensuring a high level of quality and reliability.
“We believe PG-Hyde is the most cost-efficient ballast water treatment system and the substantial orders from this shipowner go a long way in confirming this,” said PG Flow Solutions vice president of international marine says Are Hjertvik.
“The shipowner in question is dedicated to running a sustainable operation and we are proud to have been chosen as supplier to seven more vessels, while at the same time delivering technology that helps preserve marine life,” added Mr Hjertvik.
