Korean shipbuilders order PureBallast
Alfa Laval has received two orders of claimed record size for its PureBallast systems from two shipyards in Korea to be installed on board 14 container vessels under construction for A.P Møller-Maersk.
The total order value is about 80 million SEK ($10.3 million) and the delivery is scheduled for 2011 and 2012. “These are groundbreaking orders in many ways”, says Lars Renström, president and ceo of the Alfa Laval Group. “They include the 100th system sold, and are of record size, both in terms of value as in number of systems – on top of that it also involves some of the major players in the marine industry. The orders confirm our market leading position in ballast water treatment.”
Alfa Laval’s PureBallast, developed in cooperation with Wallenius Water, was the first chemical-free system to be approved by IMO and is claimed to represent the market leading technology. PureBallast systems have been sold to shipyards in Korea, Japan, China, Norway Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Dubai to be installed in vessels including ro-ro, container and offshore supply vessels, bulk carriers, and naval vessels.
