The latest order for a ballast water treatment system (BWTS) was landed by TECO 2030’s team in Miami, USA, and is reported to be worth approximately Nkr1.5M (US$170,000)
This will be the seventh DOLE vessel with a TECO 2030-sourced BWTS on board.
The TECO ballast water treatment system, powered by DESMI, is a water treatment system designed for inactivation and elimination of organisms in the ballast water, complying with the IMO D-2 standard and USCG regulations for discharge of such water by vessels during their ballasting operations.
TECO 2030-supplied systems also comply with the new G8 rules which came into force in October 2020.
TECO 2030 ASA chief executive Tore Enger said, “The sale of existing and proven technology to reduce emissions and pollution from ships means TECO 2030 will have meaningful revenue streams while we work on our most ambitious project, the development of the TECO marine fuel cell, a hydrogen-based fuel cell specifically tailored for maritime use.”
“The order from DOLE perfectly illustrates this combination of short-term sales and long-term development,” he said, “By 2024 all ships will need a ballast water treatment system,” Mr Enger added.
