Bawat provide onshore mobile ballast water treatment

The Danish company has developed a containerized ballast water treatment system

April 25, 2017
Bawat A/S is making landfall with its innovative ballast water management solutions for the maritime sector. The Danish company has developed a containerized ballast water treatment system and it is teaming up with Fortum, a Nordic circular economy company, to offer an onshore mobile treatment service to ship owners as an alternative to fixed systems.The two parties have signed an agreement of collaboration, with Bawat providing the technology and hardware, and Fortum adding mobile ballast water treatment to its established range of oily-water services offered to ports and terminals.

“We are very pleased to announce this joining of forces with Fortum. We are confident that we have found the right match due to our partner’s proven record in environmentally sound management services,” states Kim Diederichsen, CEO of Bawat A/S.

Being among the front-runners in mobile ballast water management that meets international standards, the joint team of Bawat and Fortum will benefit from Fortum’s exclusive rights for water treatment in Nordic ports and terminals.

“We are already servicing shipping in the main ports in the region, and we see onshore ballast water treatment as a new business growth opportunity,” states Jonathan Cope, Sales Director in Denmark of Fortum Waste Solutions A/S.

“Due to the collaboration agreement, we’ll be able to respond quickly with a cost-effective, energy-efficient, mobile solution that leaves no by-products. We view this partnership as a deepening of our development of waste treatment services under circular economic principles,” says Jonathan Cope. A mobile solution including heat recovery, no use of consumables and with no end residue for treatment fits very well with our mission of developing sustainable solutions for a cleaner world.   He explains that terminals, ports, authorities, and experts have expressed a keen interest in the addition of exactly this kind of mobile system to the existing mix of solutions.

The introduction of the onshore mobile ballast water treatment system - available as of early 2018 - is very timely, indeed. The solution is offered when the commercial fleet all over the world is faced with a mandatory implementation of a ballast water treatment system. A convention within the framework of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is to enter into force in September this year, with performance standards being phased in over a period of time. The convention is intended to halt the spread of invasive aquatic species which can cause havoc for local marine ecosystems and lead to substantial economic loss.
