Norwegian technology company TeamTec has made some significant changes to the Oceansaver ballast water management system (BWMS) business since rescuing it from bankruptcy a year ago.

The company, which bought Oceansaver from bankruptcy in Setpebmer 2017, said that it had optimised engineering and production in the past year, as well as ensuring worldwide coverage for sales and service.

Production of the system has been moved from Drammen to TeamTec’s own production facility near Risør, where a new test facility dedicated to BWMS has been opened. The company has also boosted Oceansaver’s international presence, adding its offices in Shanghai and Singapore to the existing Busan site.

“We have worked intensely to incorporate Oceansaver in our own existing systems,” said Edvin Tunheim Tønnessen, head of sales & projects for BWMS, TeamTec. “We are constantly adding personnel to our lifecycle service department. In addition to providing service engineers and spare parts for existing customers, we have also increased our focus on training. We are improving our training material, offer simulator training, and will also soon launch an Oceansaver app for our customers.”

After a year of integrating the Oceansaver business, the company is now focusing on sales. Tønnessen noted that even during the implementation process the company received new orders, including sales to BW Group and BP Shipping. The latest order is a retrofit project for Norwegian ship management company Bergshav.

Tønnessen added: “In the last few weeks we have seen an immense increase in inquiries and we are very much looking forward to the months and years to come.”
