In 2001, Ecochlor, Inc. developed a patented ballast water management system that was specifically designed to safely and economically eliminate the worldwide transfer of aquatic invasive species. Today, as a leading BWMS manufacturer, Ecochlor has paired with environmental and crew safety technology companies to deliver innovative business solutions to the marine industry.
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 July 2020, Ecochlor has 350 ships in its order book with over 175 vessels currently running our System worldwide. Our customers include some of largest and most respected shipowners in the world ─ Anglo Eastern Ship Management, Angelicoussis Group, 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, SCF Group, Seacor, and Scorpio Tankers – to name a few.
