Damen Shipyards Group has established three strategic partnership agreements with ballast water treatment (BWT) system suppliers Bio-UV, Evoqua Water Technologies and Trojan Marinex.

The Dutch company says these latest partnerships complement its One Stop BWT Retrofitting Service, which it’s set up to give shipowners peace of mind in their challenge to comply with the latest regulations.

Gert-Jan Oude Egberink, manager ballast water treatment, Damen, said: “We are very pleased announcing our strategic BWT partners Trojan Marinex, Bio-UV and Evoqua.”

“It means we can address many of the retrofit concerns in the shipping industry. I think there is no other global company that has this one-stop-shop, with the yard and the engineering capacity, a vast knowledge of shipbuilding, global service capacity, purchasing power and key strategic partnerships,” he added.

Trojan Marinex delivers BWT systems purpose-built for the marine environment, which uses UV filtration in a single, compact unit. Bio-UV’s Bio-Sea also combines mechanical filtration and UV disinfection, while Evoqua’s SeaCURETM BWT system is operable in all salinities based on widely deployed Chloropac electrochlorination technology.

For its One Stop service, Damen uses 3D scan techniques to create a customised engineering package, allowing the company to modify the vessel with the most economic, type approved BWT system.
