Turkey-based product tanker operator Advantage Tankers & Advantage Products is to install Alfa Laval’s PureBallast 3 ballast water management system (BWMS) on 16 vessels between March 2019 and March 2021.

Advantage will retrofit 33 systems within its existing fleet including both skid-mounted PureBallast 3 Compact and PureBallast 3 Ex systems with a flow-rate capacity of 2,000m3/h. The fleet management agreement also covered deckhouses solutions for the five PureBallast 3 Ex systems to be installed on product tankers and a service agreement covering testing, calibration, system optimization and crew guidance for the first year after commissioning.

“After an in-depth evaluation of the solutions on the market, we concluded that Alfa Laval and PureBallast 3 are the ideal solution for our fleet,” says Aydin Aydin, Energy Manager at Advantage Tankers & Advantage Products. “PureBallast 3 offers reliable compliance with an excellent fit for the very large flows aboard our Aframax, Suezmax and product tankers.”
