Hyde Marine Strikes BWTS Partnerships

Hyde Marine Strikes BWTS Partnerships

Hyde Marine, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Calgon Carbon Corporation, has established two partnership agreements for installation of the chemical free Hyde GUARDIAN Gold™ Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) for international markets.

 

Hyde Marine is partnering with Grand Bahama Shipyard (GBS) for installation of the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS, for vessels docking at the yard.

The system uses filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships’ ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port.

Additionally, Hyde Marine announced an installation agreement for the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS with UK-based Cardiff Craftsmen LTD, a ship repair and marine engineering company specializing in maintenance solutions to the marine & offshore industry.

Cardiff Craftsmen’s recent expansion, including the launch of a service center in the U.S., as well as deploying representation in Singapore, provides Hyde Marine with an increased concentration on Far East and Australian markets.

“Aligning our installation efforts with the Grand Bahama Shipyard and Cardiff Craftsmen enables Hyde Marine to further expand its commitment to shipowners, as we work with them to complete upgrades of their existing fleets to meet any future ballast water treatment regulations,” said John Platz, President, Hyde Marine, Inc.

In 2004, the IMO adopted the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments (BWMC), which requires ships to conduct a ballast water exchange or to meet concentration-based ballast water discharge standards at ports with ballast tanks 99.99% free of living organisms and pathogens.
