Denmark-based developer of ballast water management systems (BWMS), DESMI Ocean Guard A/S  announced that Sea Tankers have selected its CompactClean BWMS for installation on their existing fleet of vessels, and also appointed DESMI Ocean Guard to undertake all the required engineering for the retrofit installations.

According to plan, the first three vessels will be retrofitted with CompactClean BWMS in 2019, the rest will follow in the subsequent years.

All the vessels will be retrofitted with a CompactClean-750 system installed in a container on the deck of the vessel. This solution has been chosen because these tankers have submerged ballast pumps, and hence no pump room where the BWMS can be installed.

The CompactClean BWMS for Sea Tankers are EX certified versions approved for the installation in hazardous areas on tankers. DESMI Ocean Guard will supply the complete package consisting of BWMS equipment in a containerized solution together with an engineering package including manufacturing drawings of piping, pipe supports, foundations etc., and detailed installation manual for each vessel.
