Bawat and Pan Ocean sign contract to implement BWMS on two Heavy Lift vessels

05 January 2021

Bawat is pleased to announce the contract with the Korean shipping company Pan Ocean on Bawat BWMS for their Heavy Lift Vessels Sun Rise and Sun Shine.


CEO at Bawat Marcus Hummer says, “Especially for Heavy Lift vessels ballast water operations are different compared to other commercial ships. A Heavy Lift vessel typically operates vast amounts of ballast water fast during cargo operation because of the need for submerging and stability of the vessel. Thus, this ship type has large ballast pumps as well. With the Bawat BWMS one-pass technology the BWMS is not sized according to the ballast pump size but the ballast water treatment requirements which are often a fraction of the pump capacity.

Marcus Hummer continues, “We are really looking forward to the cooperation with Pan Ocean and cannot wait to show them the benefits of using the one-pass Bawat BWMS onboard their Heavy Lift vessels both in regards to our one-pass solution, the simplicity compared to their other BWMS installed in their current fleet as well as showing crew how simple it is to maintain the Bawat BWMS with components already know to them”.

The Korean engineering company Samwoo enabled the order and is delivering the engineering package for the installation.
