Ulstein chooses ballast system for new CSOVs
Ulstein Verft has contracted Norwegian Greentech to deliver the ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) to two CSOVs that the Norwegian shipyard is constructing for Bernhard Schulte Offshore.
The two vessels – NB320 and NB321 – are both for the offshore wind industry.
The CSOVs are of the ULSTEIN SX222 design. The ships will have hybrid battery propulsion and be prepared for methanol fuel to enable carbon-neutral operations.
Norwegian Greentech will supply its energy efficient ballast water treatment system to the two newbuilds.
The company’s sales manager Lars-Tore Lynge said: “We have delivered multiple BWTS systems to Ulstein Verft over the years and are therefore highly familiar with their stringent quality requirements.
“We are proud to be chosen for these two newbuilds.”
Norwegian Greentech will manufacture the ballast water treatment systems at its headquarters in Fosnavåg, Norway, and deliver them to Ulstein Verft. The company has not disclosed the value of the contract.
Norwegian Greentech is a supplier of ballast water treatment systems and other systems for purification of water for use in the aquaculture industry and in the maritime sector.
The company is a subsidiary of HAV Group ASA, which is listed on Euronext Growth in Oslo, Norway.
Ulstein is a family-owned company established in 1917, specialising in ship design, shipbuilding, systems and services for the maritime market.
