Canada’s dry bulk shipping company Fednav has decided to install ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) on seven more vessels. 

The company signed a contract with Norwegian BWT specialist Optimarin for the supply of seven USCG-approved Optimarin Ballast Systems (OBS).

As informed, five of the units will be fitted on existing vessels within the 63-strong Fednav fleet, with two deliveries set for newbuilds.

The order comes on top of agreements for five units made last year. Fednav initially ordered one retrofit and four newbuild units in 2017 and is now rolling out further installations.

Optimarin made its initial retrofit delivery to Fednav earlier this year, with Goltens installing an OBS on Federal Kumano at MPG Dolphin Shipyard in Varna, Bulgaria. The first newbuild orders concerned projects at Oshima shipyard in Japan.

OBS has now been successfully retrofitted in over 200 vessels. The system has certification from a comprehensive range of classification organizations, including ABS, BV, DNV-GL, LR & MLIT Japan.
