Ecochlor was founded in 2001 to provide simple, reliable, cost effective and easy to use ballast water management systems (BWMSs) that can stand up to the most stringent regulations in the world.
This year marks Ecochlor’s 20th year in the BWMS marketplace. We aren’t in this business for the short-term, our focus is to continue to offer shipowners systems that keep their vessels compliant both now and in the future.
Through improved efficiency of our manufacturing processes and an expanded line of products and services, we have made significant advances as a company. Our collaboration with other innovative maritime environmental technology providers has made Ecochlor a “Green Marine” solutions company, providing more than just ballast water management systems for our customers.
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 – two 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 January 2021, Ecochlor has approximately 325 ships in its order book with over 240 vessels currently running our System worldwide. Our customers include some of largest and most respected shipowners in the world — Anglo Eastern Ship Management, Alaska Tankers, Bahri Ship Management, Capital Ship Management, Doun Kisen Co., Ltd, Euronav Ship Management, Fuyo Kaiun Co., Idemitsu Tanker Co., JX Ocean Co., Liberty Marine, Maran Dry Management Inc and Maran Tankers, Minerva Marine, Maersk Shipping, SCF Group, Seacor, and Scorpio Tankers – to name a few.
