Safe Bulkers fleet to install Erma First BWMS
Dry bulk operator Safe Bulkers cited the benefits of early installation of ballast water management systems (BWMS) as it announced a fleetwide deal with Greek supplier Erma First.
The ship owner, which noted that it has cooperated intensively with the USCG type approved system supplier in recent months, said that it would undertake the first installation in the first quarter next year. The remaining units will be installed over a five-year period according to ships’ drydocking schedules.
Loukas Barmparis, president, Safe Bulkers, said: “Starting [installation] at an early stage provides us with certain commercial and financial advantages, including availability of equipment, minimization of down time, unrestricted worldwide trading the following years and the financial benefits of a block order.”
Erma First BWTS became the first full flow electrolysis system to receive US Coast Guard (USCG) type approval certificate in October.
