DESMI Ocean Guard to Supply Ballast Water Management Systems for DFDS

DESMI Ocean Guard has announced that Danish ferry company DFDS has selected the CompactClean ballast water management system (BWMS) for installation on its existing fleet of vessels.

DFDS and DESMI Ocean Guard have signed a frame agreement for supply of CompactClean Ballast Water Management Systems to the existing fleet of vessels of DFDS. The agreement covers more than 40 ferries to be retrofitted in the period from early 2020 until end 2024.

Most of the vessels will be retrofitted with either a CompactClean-340 or a CompactClean-500 system, with max flow capacities of 340m³/h and 500m³/h respectively. A few vessels will be retrofitted with CompactClean BWMS with 750m³/h or 1,000m³/h capacity.

DESMI Ocean Guard is very happy to add a reputable company like DFDS to the list of customers. DESMI Ocean Guard A/S CEO Rasmus Folsø explains: “DFDS is a very well respected company and one of the global leaders in ferry operation. Like DESMI, DFDS is headquartered in Denmark and has a very long history going back more than 150 years, and as such, we believe that our companies share a lot of the same values.

“Therefore, we are particularly proud that after a very careful evaluation and selection process DFDS decided for installation of the CompactClean BWMS on its entire existing fleet.

“With the very small footprint, ease of operation and completely chemical free treatment of the ballast water, CompactClean is a good and safe choice for passenger ferries, and we look very much forward to begin the implementation across the DFDS fleet.”

DESMI Ocean Guard now presents a line of new and smaller ballast water management systems (BWMS) that completes a full range of BWMS.
Systems must start up and run reliably and also treat the water in accordance with the IMO and USCG standards.
It is of utmost importance that the crew has been familiarised with water management systems and has enough knowledge to operate and maintain the system.
