Engineering, purchasing, installation and commissioning of the DESMI Ocean Guard A/S’s CompactClean CC1500 LCD EX BWMS on all 18 product tankers are covered by the agreement.

Seychelles Petroleum Company CEO, Conrad Bennington said: “SEYPEC has signed up with Fayard, a well-known shipyard in Denmark to install the DESMI Ocean Guard Ballast Water Management System for all its vessels upon their next scheduled dry-dock visit.
