Bahrain shipyard Arab Shipbuilding & Repair Yard (ASRY) is to install Hyundai ballast water management systems (BWMS) on at least three vessels owned by Arab Maritime Petroleum Transport Company (AMPTC).

The yard has already installed one system on very large crude carrier Sea Jewel and AMPTC has agreed to two further installations. Negotiations regarding the remainder of the Egyptian operator’s fleet of crude, LPG and product carriers are continuing.

Ahmed Demerdash, technical manager, AMPTC, said: “ASRY was our first choice for these installations as they have good experience with the engineering requirements and a good network of partnerships that we can rely on. They have taken good care of our fleet for many years.”

ASRY holds ‘preferred yard’ status from Hyundai Heavy Industries for installations of its BWMS and scrubbers. Under that agreement, Hyundai Global Service is committed to providing the required training to optimise the installation process. The service division also becomes a preferred supplier to ASRY for Hyundai Heavy Industries equipment, including two-stroke and four-stroke engines and spare parts.

Magdy Sharkawy, general manager, ship repair, ASRY, said: “We’re happy to be chosen as AMPTC’s partner to optimise their fleet for the new BWMS regulations. More of our regular customers are now moving forward with their BWMS plans and we have been working closely with them from both an engineering and installation perspective to make these decisions as efficient as possible.”
