The SeaCURE Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) is proving successful in the Korean newbuild and retrofit markets.

An electrochlorination unit (ECU) skid launched at the Kormarine exhibition in Busan has showcased Krosys’ competence in building, installing and commissioning its technology in Korea, said Evoqua Water Technologies.

JaeWook Bae, manager of the BWMS business team at Krosys, said: “We are very proud of the success we have achieved to date in establishing the SeaCURE system in the Korean shipbuilding sector. This latest development means the world’s best shipyards now have local access to the world’s best ballast water treatment technology.”

Tanker deal

The companies signed a manufacturing and distribution agreement in 2015.

Earlier this year, Krosys secured an order for SeaCURE systems to two 115,000dwt crude oil tankers destined for Singaporean interests.

Available as a compact skid or as modular components, the system is suitable as a newbuild or retrofit installation since biocide generation takes place in small side streams from the main ballast water, reducing system footprint and optimizing available space.

It can also be configured to provide marine growth protection for onboard seawater cooling systems.

Local market knowledge

Ian Stentiford, global VP of electrocatalytic systems at Evoqua Water Technologies, added: “Krosys was selected because of its expertise in engineering marine water treatment technologies combined with its local market knowledge.

“This means Korean-built vessels not only benefit from our design and system technology, but that technology can now be sourced and supported locally from Krosys.”
