Greece-based ship operator Eletson Corporation has selected technology group Wärtsilä to supply ballast water management systems (BWMS) to its entire fleet.

The company’s 23 product oil, chemical, and LPG carriers will be retrofitted with 69 Wärtsilä BWMS units, comprising of both their Aquarius UV (ultra-violet) and Aquarius EC (electro-chlorination) systems. The order was booked in February 2019.

“As the only dual technology provider in this field, we can meet all the requirements of ships with differing operational profiles, which gives the customer all the benefits of having to deal with only one supplier,” says Timo Koponen, Vice President, Processing Solutions, Wärtsilä Marine.

The Wärtsilä BWMS technology is well proven for its efficiency and robustness. The Wärtsilä Aquarius UV BWMS has successfully completed all the required testing procedures and has been submitted for US Coastguard (USCG) Type Approval. This follows the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Type Approval for the Aquarius UV system, which was granted in 2012. The USCG approval process is extensive and involves both land and sea testing. The company’s alternative BWMS technology, the Wärtsilä Aquarius EC, was granted USCG Type Approval in August 2018, and IMO Type Approval in 2013.
