The Oslo-based company has signed a comprehensive fleet agreement with Alfa Laval that includes 30 PureBallast 3 Compact Flex systems over the next four years, as well as commissioning and training.

 

Individual systems will handle flows of 250, 500, 600 or 1,000 m3/h, and all of the systems will have US Coast Guard type approval.

 

“Alfa Laval has provided us with strong support throughout the selection process and planning,” said Knut Johan Steneng, managing director of Bulkship Management, which is a fast-growing ship management company focused on technical management and crewing.

 

“Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 was clearly the best solution for our needs, and we know that Alfa Laval’s global network will provide us with smooth access to service and parts.”

 

PureBallast 3 Compact Flex 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 market-leading performance.

 

“The CIP sequence that cleans the quartz sleeves and UV sensor after ballast operations will keep our maintenance needs to a minimum,” said Steneng.

“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.”

 

The commissioning and training included in the fleet agreement will be instrumental in bringing the systems into operation and preparing crews for their use, according to by Alfa Laval.

 

“PureBallast 3 is a compliance system, so its quality and performance are both very important,” said Steneng. “But so is the organisation behind it. Alfa Laval’s expertise and ongoing support will help us to secure compliance in the long term.”
