Wärtsilä BWMs for Jinhai container vessels

Industry Database

Wärtsilä has received an order for ballast water management systems (BWMS) for three new container ships being built for a major European shipping company at the Jinhai Shipyard in China.

The vessels will be fitted with Wärtsilä Aquarius UV systems, with delivery to the first vessel scheduled for the end of 2015, and for the other two ships during 2016. The contract follows an order from the same company last year, under which Wärtsilä installed BWMS equipment on three 2,100teu container ships delivered in December 2014.

Each of the three vessels will be fitted with a 500m3 capacity system, which uses filtration and medium pressure UV disinfection treatments. Wärtsilä has already obtained IMO type approval and Alternate Management System (AMS) acceptance from the US Coastguard and is working to achieve full USCG Type Approval for all products in the range.

Lars Bo Kirkegaard, general manager, BWMS sales, at Wärtsilä Ship Power said: "We have enjoyed working closely with the owners and with the Jinhai Shipyard, and have received excellent support in planning this project."
