BWTS to 3 x PSVs

30 April 2019 – An undisclosed shipowner has contracted PG Flow Solutions to supply the ballast water treatment system (BWTS) to three of its platform supply vessels (PSV).

Under the contract, PG Flow Solutions will supply its 150 m3/h IMO approved PG-Hyde ballast water treatment system (BWTS), which is based on medium pressure UV technology in combination with automatic, self-cleaning filters. The PG-Hyde ballast water treatment system sterilises the ballast water at both ballasting and de-ballasting, ensuring high level of quality and reliability.

“The shipowner in question is dedicated to running a sustainable operation. As such, it ensures that all potential adverse impacts of its operations on the environment are identified and appropriately managed. Installing ballast water treatment systems on these three PSVs is part of this commitment, and we are proud to supply them with the market’s most cost-efficient BWTS system,” says Are Hjertvik, vice president of international marine sales at PG Flow Solutions.

The IMO ballast water management convention came into force on 8 September 2017.

The heritage of the business is pumps and pumping systems. The company’s headquarters and manufacturing facility is located in Sande, Vestfold, Norway.
