Severn Trent De Nora is to supply its Balpure ballast water management system (BWMS) for crude oil tankers being built by STX Offshore and Shipbuilding in Korea.

The order includes 10 Balpure BP 3000 systems, each with treatment capacities of 3,000m³/h, which will be installed on the 110,000 tonnes Aframax tankers. It also includes four Balpure BP 4000 systems, each with treatment capacities of 4,000m³/h, which will be installed on the 160,000 tonnes Suezmax tankers.

“We are excited to be partnering with the biggest and best companies in the energy and marine markets to deliver this order,” said Marwan Nesicolaci, senior vice president, global sales and marketing, Severn Trent De Nora.

“This represents a major success for Severn Trent De Nora and serves as confirmation that Balpure is the best ballast water treatment system for large vessels and the most prominent ship owners in the world are recognising that this is the best product in the market. The order will be managed and delivered from our Severn Trent De Nora Shanghai hub,” he added.

Balpure uses electrolytic disinfection technology to provide what Severn Trent De Nora says it a proven, reliable and economic ballast water management approach. In addition to being IMO Type Approved and US Coast Guard AMS certified, the system has been BV Type Approved and ABS Design Assessed.

Severn Trent De Nora has more than 3,500 electrochlorination installations in 60 countries, producing more than 1.3 million kilograms per day of sodium hypochlorite from brine and seawater. This represents more than 65% of the world capacity for brine electrochlorination technology.
