Turkish Shipowners Group selects Alfa Laval PureBallast 3
Turkish Shipowners Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) Group has signed a fleet agreement, valued at SEK210 million (USD22.2 million), for Alfa Laval to supply PureBallast 3 systems to around 228 vessels on behalf of the group’s members.
At the signing ceremony in Istanbul on 4 July 2019, around 50 members of the Turkish Shipowners BWT Group confirmed the decision to install PureBallast 3 systems on the group’s vessels.
The choice of PureBallast 3 was made by the group’s technical committee after a year of carefully evaluating 14 different UV ballast water treatment systems. Alfa Laval’s comprehensive offering in ballast water treatment, especially its service offering, played an important role in the group's decision.
The PureBallast 3 systems will be delivered for installation on vessels over a five-year period between 2019 and 2024. They will Include effective systems with small foot print for flows down to 85 m3/h as well as a few systems for large flows up to 1000 m3/h.
“We were convinced not only by the PureBallast 3 technology, but also by the total support offered to us by Alfa Laval,” says Simge Shipping shipowner Mr Murat Er, who leads Turkish Shipowners BWT Group. “Alfa Laval’s strong presence and well-developed portfolio of services in ballast water treatment will mean peace of mind for Turkish Shipowners BWT Group vessels in complying with the regulations.”
