Industry Database

Damen Green Solutions has signed a letter of intent with Norwegian eco-friendly equipment company, TeamTec, to supply and service the innovative Avitalis ballast water treatment system.

The Avitalis ballast water treatment system combines filtration and a proven, eco-friendly chemical treatment solution optimised for medium-sized to large vessels, which is highly effective in water of any salinity, turbidity or temperature.

Barry Stolk of Damen Green Solutions, said: “We have every confidence that the Avitalis ballast water treatment system has a great future ahead of it. This combination of Norwegian, German and Dutch expertise will be very effective indeed.”

Currently Avitalis is undergoing ship board testing IMO type approval and USCG land-based testing. It is anticipated that IMO type approval will be achieved in the first half of 2017, followed by USCG type approval later the same year.

The chemical used in the treatment process is Peraclean Ocean, developed by Evonik Industries, a leading German speciality chemicals company. With a broad anti-microbial spectrum, it is effective even at low temperatures and rapidly decomposes into water, oxygen and acetic acid, which is readily biodegradable. As such it is expected to meet and exceed regulatory requirements well into the future.

This collaboration between the three companies goes back to two years ago when Damen began discussions with Evonik regarding the latter’s research into marine applications for Peraclean. In February 2016, Evonik formed an exclusive partnership with Teamtec to optimise Avitalis.
