USA: Hyde Marine Wins Contract to Supply GUARDIAN BWT Systems for LR2 Aframax Tankers

Hyde Marine, Inc, a subsidiary of Calgon Carbon Corporation, has been awarded a contract to supply a total of six Hyde GUARDIAN® Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) Systems for two LR2 Aframax tankers being constructed by the SPP shipyard in South Korea for ship owner OSG.

The value of the contract was not disclosed. Hyde GUARDIAN employs a chemical-free process that combines filtration with ultraviolet disinfection to treat the ballast water of a ship to prevent the spread of invasive species.

Hyde Marine will provide two HG1500X-SF70 units and one HG250S for each of the newbuild ships, which will be installed in 2012. The tankers are currently under construction at SPP Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., located in Sacheon, South Syeongsang Province, South Korea.

The Hyde GUARDIAN unit received International Maritime Organization (IMO) Type Approval in April 2009 and was the first BWT System accepted in the U.S. Coast Guard’s Shipboard Technology Evaluation Program (STEP). Calgon Carbon’s UV Technology Division and Hyde Marine also received ISO 9001:2008 accreditation from the registrar Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and the ANAB National Accreditation Board in 2010. This certification applies to the management system for the design, development, manufacture, delivery, installation, warranty support, and aftermarket parts and service for both the UV water treatment and ballast treatment systems.
