Ecochlor’s extensive retrofit experience means that the company is able to anticipate where issues are likely to occur and can ensure that the system is installed correctly and in a timely, cost-effective way.
For tanker vessels, safety of the crew, along with Class and Flag requirements, are key issues along with the complexity of doing modifications to a hazardous zone.
Ecochlor is a top choice for mid- to the largest size tankers, with the lowest power requirements in the industry and a BWMS that does not increase in proportion to the ballast water flow rates. The system is approved for installation in both US flag and foreign flag vessels in hazardous zones rated Zone 1 or Zone 0.
The Ecochlor system uses FilterSafe’s highest throughput SuperTurbo filter to reduce ballast water intake time, allowing for faster cargo unloading.
Ecochlor holds a unique place in the industry as one of the few treatment systems that do not require neutralization or retreatment at discharge. As such, the Ecochlor system offers a significant advantage to bulk carriers with gravity discharge top side ballast tanks.
Every vessel type has its own individual requirements and challenges in conjunction with a BWMS retrofit. The Ecochlor system offers a high degree of flexibility for installation in terms of location. It has a relatively small footprint and low power consumption, which is particularly important for OSV or smaller cargo ships.
Ecochlor has been successfully installed on the following vessel types
UL / VLCC Tankers
Integrated Tug Barges
Pure Car Carriers
Multi-purpose / Heavy Lift Cargos
RO/RO Container Carriers
