  The world leading shipping group CMA-CGM has fitted its largest containership, the 18,000 TEU Vasco de Gama, with a 2,000 cu.m/h Bio-Sea 2000 Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) supplied by French ballast water treatment specialist Bio-UV.

 
The Vasco de Gama is equipped with the latest environmental technologies, and the BIO-SEA2000 BWTS representing therefore one of the greenest goods transport means in the world.
 
The Bio-Sea system uses filtration and high power UV to treat ballast water without requiring any chemicals.
 
The U.K.-flagged Vasco de Gama has a length of 399 m and beam of 54 m. Delivered July 27 by China State Shipbuilding Corporation, it is thus largest containership ever delivered from a Chinese shipyard.
 
BIO-UV has been cooperating closely with a great number of partners, including the CMA CGM Group, in order to provide modular, reliable, innovative and energy saving systems, efficient in all water qualities.
