Bulkship Management AS chooses Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 for its entire fleet

March 12, 2019

Oslo-based Bulkship Management AS has chosen Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 for compliance in ballast water treatment. The company has signed a comprehensive fleet agreement that includes 30 PureBallast 3 Compact Flex systems, as well as commissioning and training.

Bulkship Management AS is a fast-growing ship management company focused on technical management and crewing. The company has now signed a fleet agreement with Alfa Laval in ballast water treatment, comprising the supply of 30 PureBallast 3 Compact Flex systems over the next four years. Individual systems will handle flows of 250, 500, 600 or 1000 m3/h, and all of the systems will have U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) type approval.

“Alfa Laval has provided us with strong support throughout the selection process and planning,” says Knut Johan Steneng, Managing Director of Bulkship Management AS. “Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 was clearly the best solution for our needs, and we know that Alfa Laval’s global network will provide us with smooth access to service and parts.”

Bulkship Management AS found numerous technical advantages to PureBallast 3 Compact Flex, which is delivered as loose components for flexible installation. They include not only the small system footprint, but also the automatic Cleaning-In-Place (CIP) process that safeguards the system’s market-leading performance.

“The CIP sequence that cleans the quartz sleeves and UV sensor after ballast operations will keep our maintenance needs to a minimum,” says Steneng. “But above all it will ensure that we get everything we can out of the UV lamps. The most important thing is knowing our vessels are compliant, whatever the water conditions or quality.”

Besides the supply of the PureBallast 3 Compact Flex systems, the fleet agreement with Bulkship Management AS includes commissioning and training by Alfa Laval. These knowledge services will be instrumental in bringing the systems into operation and preparing crews for their use.

“PureBallast 3 is a compliance system, so its quality and performance are both very important,” Steneng concludes. “But so is the organization behind it. Alfa Laval’s expertise and ongoing support will help us to secure compliance in the long term.”
