Oslo-based ship management company Bulkship Management AS has chosen Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 to supply ballast water treatment (BWT) systems to its entire fleet. The comprehensive fleet agreement includes commissioning and training, as well as 30 PureBallast 3 Compact Flex systems.

Bulkship Management AS manages a fleet of around 30 dry cargo vessels, ranging in size from 8,000 dwt up to 60,000 dwt. The fast-growing ship management company focuses on technical management and crewing.

The company has concluded a fleet agreement with Alfa Laval to supply 30 PureBallast 3 Compact Flex BWT systems over the next four years. Individual systems will handle flows of 250, 500, 600 or 1000 m3/h, and all of the systems will have U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) type approval.

Bulkship Management AS identified PureBallast 3 Compact Flex's small system footprint and automatic Cleaning-In-Place (CIP) process as key advantages.

“The CIP sequence that cleans the quartz sleeves and UV sensor after ballast operations will keep our maintenance needs to a minimum,” said Knut Johan Steneng, Managing Director of Bulkship Management AS. “But above all it will ensure that we get everything we can out of the UV lamps. The most important thing is knowing our vessels are compliant, whatever the water conditions or quality.”

“Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 was clearly the best solution for our needs, and we know that Alfa Laval’s global network will provide us with smooth access to service and parts,” Steneng added.

The fleet agreement with Bulkship Management AS also includes commissioning and training by Alfa Laval. These knowledge services will be instrumental in bringing the systems into operation and preparing crews for their use.

“PureBallast 3 is a compliance system, so its quality and performance are both very important,” Steneng concluded. “But so is the organization behind it. Alfa Laval’s expertise and ongoing support will help us to secure compliance in the long term.”
