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.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
