Turkish Shipowners Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) Group has signed a fleet agreement for Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 systems, valued at approximately $22 million. Alfa Laval’s comprehensive offering in ballast water treatment, especially when it comes to service, was a key factor for the group.

At the signing ceremony in Istanbul on July 4th, 2019, the around 50 members of the Turkish Shipowners BWT Group confirmed the decision to install PureBallast 3 systems on the group’s vessels. The choice of PureBallast 3 was made by the group’s technical committee after a year of carefully evaluating 14 different UV ballast water treatment systems.

The PureBallast 3 systems will be delivered for installation on vessels over a five-year period between 2019 and 2024. They will Include effective systems with small foot print for flows down to 85 m3/h as well as a few systems for large flows up to 1000 m3/h.
