Milestone Achieved: 50 Stolt Tanker Vessels Now Have CompactClean BWMS in Operation

DESMI Ocean Guard A/S CEO Rasmus Folsø says: We are proud to announce that we now have 50 Stolt Tankers BV vessels commissioned and operating more than 100 CompactClean BWMS.”

The first Stolt Tankers vessel with CompactClean BWMS was commissioned in January 2019, and now just 26 months later another 49 Stolt Tankers vessels have been equipped with CompactClean. 

This result has been achieved through close collaboration between DESMI and Stolt Tankers throughout the entire process, including design, coordination, commissioning and operational support.

DESMI Ocean Guard technical manager Mark K Andersen is very pleased with the collaboration with Stolt Tankers: “It is truly a milestone to have the 50th Stolt Tankers vessel in operation with CompactClean BWMS. Furthermore, to be able to receive Stolt Tankers appreciation of our cooperation and performance of CompactClean BWMS at the same time makes it even more special. We are proud and pleased with this joint accomplishment and excited about the cooperation in the years to come.”

The CompactClean BWMS installed on board the 50 Stolt Tanker vessels are both IMO and USCG type-approved and they are EX-certified, with no minimum holding time requirement on IMO certificate and just 2 hours minimum holding time requirement on the USGC TA certificate.

Furthermore, the systems have no salinity or temperature limitations and no special flow reduction in order to be compliant with US requirements.

All in all, this makes CompactClean BWMS the most versatile UV-based BWMS on the market, a fact that is acknowledged and appreciated by Stolt Tankers.

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.
