Alfa Laval to supply 30 BWTS to Bulkship Management

Alfa Laval has confirmed a deal to supply 30 ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) over the next four years to the entire fleet of Oslo-based Bulkship Management.

The agreement will see Alfa Laval supply 30 PureBallast 3 Compact Flex systems, which are US Coast Guard (USCG) type approved, for the Bulkship Management fleet.

Bulkship Management pointed out several technical advantages to PureBallast 3 Compact Flex, which is delivered as loose components for flexible installation. They include not only the small system footprint, but also the automatic Cleaning-In-Place (CIP) process that safeguards the system’s performance.

“The CIP sequence that cleans the quartz sleeves and UV sensor after ballast operations will keep our maintenance needs to a minimum. But above all it will ensure that we get everything we can out of the UV lamps. The most important thing is knowing our vessels are compliant, whatever the water conditions or quality,” said Knut Johan Steneng, managing director of Bulkship Management.

In addition to the supply of the BWTS, the agreement with Bulkship Management includes commissioning and training by Alfa Laval. These knowledge services will be instrumental in bringing the systems into operation and preparing the crew for their use.
