Ecochlor, Inc. was founded in 2001 with the sole purpose of commercializing patents for a superior ballast water management technology.

The company, with corporate headquarters in the United States, has the capability to install, service and support its systems throughout the world.



In 2004, the company installed its first system on Atlantic Container Line’s Atlantic Compass, and a second system the Moku Pahu – a U.S. flag, Jones Act bulk carrier retrofit – 2 years later. With ballast operations in California, this vessel encountered some of the strictest regulations in the world. For 13 years this ship ran ballast operations using the original installed system until her last voyage in January of 2019.

Today, as of December 2019, Ecochlor has more than 300 ships in its order book. Our customers include some of largest and most respected shipowners in the world ─ Alaska Tankers, Anglo Eastern Ship Management, Bahri Ship Management, Capital Ship Management, Liberty Marine, Angelicoussis Group, Minerva Marine, SCF Group, Seacor, and Scorpio Tankers.
