Job Opening - Deputy Technical Manager (DTM)
21 October 2020
Are you a maritime technical profile, with experience from 2- and 4 stroke engines? Are you motivated to work for a company that protects the world’s oceans through green technology for ballast water? Then we have just the position for you!
On behalf of BAWAT, MARPRO is looking for a Technical Specialist
Bawat A/S is a Danish-owned company that offers a unique green solution for treating ballast water. Ballast water transported by ships must not be discharged into new waters without treatment. The solution is based on using the ship’s waste heat to pasteurise the ballast water. This green technology uses neither chemicals nor additional energy, which makes it unique among the market’s competing solutions. It is approved, patented, and still possess great development potential. Bawat A/S has already sold ballast-water installations to several of the world’s leading shipping companies and is ready to speed up the commercialisation. The market is very attractive, since the world’s collective fleet of ships – large and small, new, and old – are now obliged only to discharge treated ballast water. Moreover, a unique feature of the technology is that it can be used to great advantage in both ports and shipyards.
