Hyde Marine ballast water treatment system secures Russian approval

As a result of the RMRS Type Approval, Hyde Guardian units can be installed on any Russian-flagged vessel.

A Hyde Guardian unit with a treatment capacity of 250 m3/hr will be installed on the Russian arctic container vessel, the MS Norilskiy Nickel, later this year. 

Hyde Guardian systems are chemical free, using filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships’ ballast water to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species from port to port.

The Hyde Guardian unit received International Maritime Organization (IMO) Type Approval in April 2009.

Hyde Marine, part of Calgon Carbon Corp’s Ultraviolet Technologies Division, has sold more than 100 Type Approved systems to date.
