Calgon Carbon wins ballast water management contract

The Hyde GUARDIAN Systems will be delivered for 10 Suez-Max Crude Oil Tankers beginning in 2011 through 2013.

The Hyde GUARDIAN system is chemical free, using filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships’ ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port.

John Stanik, Calgon Carbon chairman, CEO and president, said: “This is an important order for Hyde Marine in the BWT market as it expands the range of application of Hyde GUARDIAN technology in both capacity and vessel type. I believe we are establishing a very strong global reputation that will position us as a major player in this new multi-billion dollar emerging market.”
