GEA Westfalia Separator is to supply four of its MarineX systems for installation on Navigator Gas’ two new build vessels currently under construction in Korea.

GEA Westfalia’s Separator BallastMaster systems, which are offered under the company’s partnership with Trojan Marinex, provide filtration and UV in a single compact unit, enabling an extremely small footprint.

The BallastMaster marineX unit is a mechanical-physical, chemical-free ballast water treatment system and is IMO and AMS Type Approved for freshwater, brackish water and marine water, apparently to one of the lowest UV transmittance values in the industry.

A single module combines both pre-filtration and UV disinfection stages of ballast water, minimising footprint requirements.

Navigator Gas provides international, ocean transportation and coastal distribution services of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) petrochemical gases and ammonia for energy companies, industrial users and commodity traders. It’s the largest operator and owner of handysize, ethylene capable vessels within the 15-25,000m³ gas carrier segment, with a current fleet of 27 modern vessels.

GEA Westfalia Separator and Trojan marineX are the leading company on the path to obtain the ‘gold standard’ USCG approval. Full testing documentation is now submitted by DNV to the USCG for the approval process.
