Ecochlor has signed an agreement with Minerva Marine for the potential supply of ballast water treatment (BWT) systems for up to 30 its vessels in accordance with the IMO and USCG implementation plan.

The Ecochlor technology was selected for retrofit in Minerva’s managed bulkers and tankers varying in size from MRs to VLCCs.

Stavros Daniolos, technical manager and Vayia Hatziyianni, project team leader, Minerva Marine, said: “Our company is committed to compliance with both USCG and IMO ballast water treatment regulations and we anticipate Ecochlor will receive USCG Type Approval.”

“Minerva has a due diligence plan in place for BWT installation and compliance. As innovators in the treatment of ballast water they were able to secure pricing and availability before the industry rush. The Ecochlor BWTS, known for its efficacy in all water types, low power and flexible installations, were key conditions in their decision,” said Tom Perlich, founder and president of Ecochlor.

Ecochlor Inc specialises in cost effective, environmentally safe ballast water treatment solutions that comply with all enacted and proposed standards and regulations.

The Ecochlor BWTS uses a two-step process to treat ballast water, filtration followed by disinfection with the well-known biocide, chlorine dioxide.

Minerva Marine Inc was established in 1996 and has grown from a tanker manager of six vessels to an Aframax operator managing vessels ranging from chemical product and crude oil carriers (MRs to VLCCs) in the tanker segment right through to Capesize in the bulker segment.
