DESMI signs BWMS frame agreement with French tanker operator
Desmi Ocean Guard, the ballast water management system (BWMS) supplier, has signed a frame agreements with Sea Trade, a France-based tanker operator, for the installation of the CompactClean solution on its fleet of vessels.
All the vessels will be retrofitted with a deck-mounted CompactClean-750 system installed in a container. The solution has been chosen because the tankers do not have a pump room where the BWMS can be installed, as the tankers have submerged ballast pumps.
The CompactClean BWMS for Sea Tankers are EX certified versions approved for the installation in hazardous areas on tankers.
Sea Tankers has also appointed DESMI Ocean Guard to undertake the required engineering for the retrofit installations. According to plan, the first three vessels will be retrofitted with CompactClean BWMS in 2019, the rest will follow in subsequent years.
Deputy Managing Director of Sea Tankers, Francis Laverriere, explains that the CompactClean system was chosen for a variety of reasons, including
its small footprint, which allows the installation to be located inside a 20 foot container, the system's ease of operation and high degree of automation, and its low opex.
He also adds: “We particularly appreciated the professionalism of the DESMI team, commercially and technically. We have the feeling that we realize the projects in partnership and not in a customer vs. supplier relationship. DESMI was very responsive and found the necessary capabilities to adapt the system onto our parcel tankers in an EX environment. We chose DESMI for the retrofit of our fleet mainly for these reasons.”
