TeamTec has been awarded a contract to supply its TeamTec Oceansaver Ballast Water Management System (TTO BWMS) for two of Höegh LNG’s gas carriers. The vessels to be retrofitted are Artic Princess and Arctic Lady, and installation will take place in 2020.
The TTO BWMS delivers high-performance filtration in combination with disinfection through patented electrodialysis. It was the first electro chlorination BWMS to receive USCG type approval and has recently been approved according to the new IMO BWM Code (revised G8). Höegh LNG and the carriers’ charterer, Equinor, jointly selected the TTO BWMS, citing the strong focus on safety as one of the main reasons.
The TTO BWMS fits perfectly to suit the high capacity ballast flows that are used in LNG carriers. An intelligent chemical dosing algorithm optimises power consumption during ballast operations resulting in minimal consumable usage during de-ballast.
