Danish shipping and logistics company DFDS has contracted compatriot company DESMI Ocean Guard A/S to install ballast water management systems (BWMS) on DFDS’ existing fleet of vessels.

As informed, DFDS and the BWMS manufacturer recently signed a framework agreement for the supply of CompactClean BWMSs.

The agreement covers more than 40 ferries to be retrofitted in the period from early 2020 until end 2024, according to DESMI Ocean Guard.

The majority of the vessels will be retrofitted with either a CompactClean-340 or a CompactClean-500 system, with max flow capacities of 340 m3/h and 500 m3/h respectively. A few vessels will be retrofitted with CompactClean BWMS with 750 m3/h or 1000 m3/h capacity.

“We are … proud that after a very careful evaluation and selection process DFDS decided for installation of the CompactClean BWMS on its entire existing fleet,” Rasmus Folsø, CEO of DESMI Ocean Guard A/S, adding that the company is looking forward to beginning the implementation across the DFDS’ fleet.

Founded by A. P. Moller – Maersk A/S, Skjølstrup & Grønborg ApS and DESMI A/S in 2009, DESMI Ocean Guard is today wholly owned by DESMI.

The manufacturer has so far developed three type approved BWMSs, with the most recent one being the CompactClean BWMS.

At the end of 2018, DFDS had 42 owned and 11 chartered in ferries deployed on the company’s ferry routes.
