DESMI Ocean Guard will supply its CompactClean Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) to Misha Shipping’s fleet.

The contract includes delivery of 10 CompactClean BWMS in sizes from 340 to 750 m3/h. The first system is due to be delivered later this year.

Rasmus Folsø, CEO of DESMI Ocean Guard, commented: “The system is free of any troubling operational limitations and can treat water independent of its salinity (fresh, brackish, and marine water) and temperature.”

UV unit

The CompactClean BWMS consists of an automatic backflushing filter, a UV unit, valves, sensors, and controls. The UV unit’s shape ensures optimum dosage of the UV to all organisms in the water, said DESMI Ocean Guard.

Other features include a pump that can be used as stripping pump under ballast stripping operations and automatic generation of PDF reports that document all the performed ballast water treatment, in a format that is suitable for submission to local port state authorities and others.

The CompactClean BWMS is currently undergoing IMO and USCG type approval testing. Type approval is expected to be granted around June/July.

MISHA Shipping operates shallow-draft dry cargo vessels primarily designed for operations in Russian inland waters, Black Sea and Mediterranean ports, as well as a new generation of sea-river vessels optimised for navigation in Volga and Don channels and unrestricted navigation at sea.
