The new office will be headed by newly appointed business development manager for Europe, Scandinavia and UK, Soren Scheid.
Scheid has more than 10 years’ experience working in the maritime industry, most recently with exhaust gas cleaning system supplier Bilfinger Engineering & Technologies GmbH.
“Soren brings an exceptional set of qualifications and increased momentum to Ecochlor as we continue to grow our sales and support resources for the shipping industry,” commented Andrew Marshall, vp of Business Development.
“His experience in after-sales support as well as his proficiency as a technical environmental engineer will assist our global sales team working in tandem with our customers to reach a common goal – BWMS regulatory compliance for each and every ship that performs ballast operations with an Ecochlor system,” Marshall added.
The Ecochlor system uses an innovative two-step process to treat ballast water - filtration followed by an injection of chlorine dioxide – and the company prides itself on visiting all ships supplied with its BWMS twice a year for chemical resupply and to support the ship’s crew in training and equipment review.
An Ecochlor spokesperson added that the company views Germany as a key shipping market so wanted to have someone local to support its efforts in sales and marketing as well as any after-sales support in the region.
