Norway’s PG Flow Solutions is to supply ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) to seven offshore support vessels.

PG Flow Solutions will provide five 250 m3/h and two 1000 m3/h, IMO and USCG approved PG-Hyde ballast water treatment systems.

The PG-Hyde BWTS is based on medium pressure UV technology in combination with automatic, self-cleaning filters. The system sterilises the ballast water at both ballasting and de-ballasting.

The contract follows 16 previous BWTS orders from the same shipowner.

“The shipowner in question is dedicated to running a sustainable operation and we are proud to have been chosen as supplier to seven more vessels, while at the same time delivering technology that helps preserve marine life,” said Are Hjertvik, vice president of international marine sales at PG Flow Solutions.
