Swedish provider of specialized products and engineering solutions Alfa Laval signed in June frame agreements with two different shipowners for the supply of its ballast water treatment systems (BWTS).

As informed, the systems will be delivered during a three-year period and retrofitted on tankers and bulk carriers.

The fleet orders were received from undisclosed parties, a tanker operator in the Middle East and a bulk carrier operator in Europe, which will time the booking of individual BWTS orders with the scheduled dry docking of their vessels. Alfa Laval said it will make the first of its PureBallast system deliveries to the shipowners during the latter part of 2017.

“The Ballast Water Management Convention enters into force on September 8 of this year and these frame agreements are a clear sign that the ballast water treatment market is moving forward,” Kristina Effler, Manager Global Business Management, Alfa Laval PureBallast, said.

“Shipowners are beginning to look beyond individual installations towards long-term solutions that will ensure compliance for their entire fleet,” Effler added.

The framework agreements Alfa Laval has signed for PureBallast cover 45 and eight systems respectively, many of which will handle a significant ballast water flow. The first order includes 22 systems with capacities of 2,000 m3/h or 3,000 m3/h, while the second order comprises four systems of 1500 m3/h and an additional four of 3000 m3/h, according to Alfa Laval.

Alfa Laval received BWT certificate from the United States Coast Guard Marine Safety Center in December 2016.
