Zhejiang Ouhua Shipbuilding Installs ERMA FIRST BWTS in Greek Boxships

ERMA FIRST ESK Engineering Solutions S.A. has successfully concluded the installation of its Ballast Water Management System “Erma First” in two containerships being built at Zhejiang Ouhua Shipbuilding for Greek owner Evalend Shipping Co. S.A.

The agreement for the installations was signed in 2012 with ERMA FIRST who was awarded the contract against seven competitors. ERMA FIRST was selected by both the shipyard and the owner on the basis of the system’s cost effectiveness, while a key factor was also the double filter system it carries.

Furthermore, Zhejiang Ouhua Shipbuilding conducted inspections at the ERMA FIRST headquarters and facilities at Schisto (Greece) in July 2012, deeming completely satisfactory all the necessary tests of the system conducted on Costamare’s boxship “Cosco Guanzhou”. ERMA FIRST also worked in close collaboration with “Neptun Ship Design” of Germany, a Zhejiang Ouhua Shipbuilding partner, which provided expertise.

The two containerships will be delivered during the first half of 2014, while the orders for the ERMA FIRST equipment were placed last month.

ERMA FIRST has also secured contracts for one bulker newbuilding (built in Japan for Niovis Shipping), two PCTC newbuidlings (built in S.Korea for Neptune Lines), three OSV newbuildings (built in India) while the ERMA FIRST BWT system has also been installed on one Greek-controlled M/V and a Turkish Mega Yacht. Finally, the company has secured deals with two Greek owners to install its system on four more vessels (two bulkers and two containerships).

ERMA FIRST has been designed and developed by ERMA FIRST ESK Engineering Solutions S.A., a company established for producing a sound and reliable Ballast Water Treatment System, being at the forefront of Research and Development supported by a team of specialists in waste & water treatment technology in marine applications, with strong background from professional establishments exhibiting more than 30 years experience in environmental protection and proven applications worldwide.
