The British Innovator is one of two BP Shipping gas carriers that will undergo a BWMS retrofit installation

Norway-owned Goltens will manage the engineering and retrofit installation of OceanSaver ballast water management systems (BWMS) onboard two of BP Shipping’s gas carriers.

Engineering and prefabrication work for 138,000 cbm LNG vessels British Innovator and British Merchant will be undertaken by US-headquartered Goltens this year, in a contract that will see it complete installation services in 2018.

“We look forward to working closely with BP and applying our well-proven process to the retrofit of these two gas carriers in the most efficient manner,” said Roy Strand, chief operating officer of Goltens.

Goltens has been involved in more than 240 BWMS projects covering a broad range of vessel types and system manufacturers.

It has previously provided support including 3D laser scanning and design engineering, system evaluation and comparisons, total engineering packages; including bill of materials, 3D shipyard installation drawings and instructions and Marine Class Submittals, as well as full turnkey installations.

It has branches in Oslo, Miami, Dubai, Singapore, Shanghai, Busan and Groningen in the Netherlands, where its Green Technologies division is headquartered.
