Ballast water treatment supplier Optimarin has consolidated its relationship with Höegh Autoliners by securing a new agreement for ten retrofitted BWT systems.

The contract follows previous individual orders over the past two years, with the USCG approved, UV-based technology now set to be installed on-board 15 ships within the firm’s advanced RoRo fleet.

“This is arguably the kind of contract we value most,” said Tore Andersen, Optimarin CEO. “The fact that Hoëgh Autoliners is an established global leader in its segment is one thing, but the really satisfying aspect is that they’re reordering more of our units because they know they work.”

“In a segment that is still somewhat defined by teething troubles with technology – a survey by ABS in 2017 revealed that almost half of installed systems weren’t operating properly – our simple, easy to install and maintain technology is a market proven choice.”

Successive orders

All of the Optimarin Ballast Systems (OBS) will boast 500m3 capacities.

The order follows less than a month after the Norwegian-headquartered supplier signed one of its biggest contracts to date, the delivery of 36 systems to Ardmore Shipping.

Optimarin has now sold well over 650 systems, with more than 500 installed and operational. Of these, over 200 have been retrofits delivered in collaboration with global engineering partners Goltens and Zeppelin.

Höegh Autoliners will receive the first of its ten units this month, with a delivery schedule that rolls out installations through to 2023.
