Greek-based Minerva Marine has signed an agreement with Ecochlor BWTS provider for the potential supply of its systems to company’s fleet in accordance to the IMO and USCG implementation plan.

Ecochlor claims that its systems have been selected for retrofit in up to 30 Minerva’s managed bulkers and tankers, varying in size from MRs to VLCCs. The BWTS vendor has recently applied for USCG Type Approval while it has selected DNV GL as Independent Laboratory in order to secure DNV GL classification society approval, simultaneously with USCG Type Approval. So far, only three BWT Systems have been granted type approval by Optimarin, Alfa Laval and OceanSaver.

Minerva says it continually strives to meet and exceed all environmental standards with the IMO and US Coast Guard and anticipates Ecochlor will receive the USCG Type Approval.

“Minerva has a due diligence plan in place for BWT installation and compliance.. The Ecochlor BWTS, known for its efficacy in all water types, low power and flexible installations, were key conditions in their decision,” commented Tom Perlich, Founder and President of Ecochlor.

According to Ecochlor, its BWT system is not impaired by variations in water salinity, temperature, turbidity, organics or vibration and does not need neutralization at ballast water discharge. The price and size of a chlorine dioxide generator does not vary greatly based on flow rate.
