BEIJING, China – Evoqua Water Technologies has signed a partnership with marine equipment supplier Hai Cheung to grow its ballast water treatment presence in China.
Hai Cheung will initially support Chinese shipyards with the supply and service of Evoqua’s SeaCURE ballast water management system (BWMS).
In a second phase of the agreement, the Hong Kong-based engineering company will then produce the SeaCURE system under licence to facilitate demand from Chinese yards.
The electrochlorination solution has been developed to meet the IMO and USCG regulations, in all three salinities and is based around three main pillars of filtration, electrochlorination and proprietary ORP-control logic.
Utilising the Chloropac® electrolyser, the system produces hypochlorite through the electrochlorination process to provide effective ballast water management.
The in situ generation from natural seawater avoids purchasing and handling of bulk chemicals, thereby reducing operating costs and removing safety risks, Evoqua said.
Following the ratification of the IMO Convention, the demand for a complete ballast water treatment solution, including design, installation and aftermarket support is expected to grow.
