Alfa Laval's PureBallast system will be among the supplier's equipment on the new derrick lay vessel

Petrofac’s new derrick lay vessel JSD600 will host waste fuel recovery, bilge water treatment and ballast water treatment systems from Alfa Laval when it begins operations in 2017.

The new vessel will feature S-lay and K-lay pipe laying capability, with heavy lifting of up to 5,000 tonnes. According to chief engineer Dmitry Lygin the vessel’s wide reach – operating in deep and ultra-deep water on construction and installation projects worldwide – requires a sound environmental approach as well as high technological standards.

“One of our objectives is to minimise the ecological footprint of the vessel in the marine and air environments,” said Lygin. “Among the many different factors, fuel consumption, sludge production, bilge and ballast water discharges represent critical areas that can have a negative impact on the marine environment if not properly managed.”

Among the environmental protection technologies on board will be the waste fuel recovery system Alfa Laval PureDry, the bilge water treatment system Alfa Laval PureBilge and the ballast water treatment system Alfa Laval PureBallast.

“Alfa Laval is proud to have a range environmental products associated with a unique vessel like the Petrofac JSD6000,” said Pauli Kujala, senior business manager, oily waste treatment systems at Alfa Laval.
