Alaskan Tanker Company (ATC) has selected the Ecochlor ballast water management system (BWMS) for its fleet of three VLCC crude oil tankers. The agreement includes an option for one additional vessel.

The Ecochlor BWMS is approved for installation in both US Flag and International vessels in hazardous areas rated Zone 1 or Zone 0 through their US Coast Guard Type Approval certification. The installations will start in autumn 2019 and run through 2021 at the SembCorp Marine's Sembawang Shipyard, Singapore.

Steve Candito, CEO at Ecochlor said, “Alaskan Tankers has a reputation of shipping oil with the utmost concern for personnel safety and environmental protection. They have a ‘culture of responsibility, accountability at all levels’ and we are proud to have been selected by a vessel owner with such high standards. I look forward to our ongoing relationship ─ providing BWMS and after sales service with the excellence in performance that they demand.”

These vessels primarily transport crude oil from BP's Alaska North Slope to US West Coast refineries particularly in California and Washington. These Pacific Northwest areas have the highest environmental standards and are specifically designated in the new VIDA legislation that was signed late in 2017 for more stringent requirements.
