Coldharbour Marine, a developer of ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) for large tankers, bulkers and LNG vessels, has signed a deal with marine and offshore engineering company Sembcorp Marine that will see the latter offer the Coldharbour GLD™ BWT as part of the Sembcorp Marine Green Technology Retrofit (GTR) solutions for shipowners.

“We have always maintained that no single technology is suitable for all vessel types and for all operating requirements. Our ballast water treatment systems target the largest vessels with the highest pumping rates, largest ballast volumes and longest ballast legs,” Andrew Marshall, Coldharbour CEO, said.

As informed, Coldharbour’s BWT system carries full International Maritime Organization (IMO) type-approval issued by the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency. In addition, it received Lloyd’s Register type-approval and US Coast Guard Alternate Management Systems acceptance. The system is currently undergoing full US Coast Guard type-approval.

In a separate announcement, the shipyard said that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with De Nora, a supplier of electrochlorination equipment, on the supply and installation of De Nora BALPURE ballast water treatment systems at its yards. Under the deal, the BALPURE system will be made available through a turnkey offering from the yard which includes project management, vessel survey, integration design engineering, ballast water management system equipment selection, and retrofit installation services.

De Nora BALPURE equipment is IMO Type Approved with USCG AMS Acceptance and is currently progressing through both land-based and shipboard testing for compliance with US Coast Guard (USCG) ballast water management legislation and renewal of its IMO certification.

The global marine industry is preparing for the implementation of the Ballast Water Convention on September 8, 2017.

Under the convention’s terms, ships will be required to manage their ballast water to remove, render harmless, or avoid the uptake or discharge of aquatic organisms and pathogens within ballast water and sediments.
