Danish refined oil product tanker operator and TORM will retrofit 36 Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 Ex systems within its existing fleet and fit PureBallast 3 Ex systems on 11 newbuilds.
Alfa Laval will provide large-flow ballast water treatment systems for 36 vessels between 2019 and 2024.
TORM is a product tanker company with vessels ranging in size from 35 000 to 114 000 DWT. The company has worked with PureBallast 3 Ex since 2017 and retrofitted its first system in 2018. Having recently ordered PureBallast 3 Ex for newbuild projects in China, TORM will now retrofit the same across their product tanker fleet.
Under the fleet agreement, 47 TORM vessels will be equipped with large-flow PureBallast 3 Ex systems of 2000 m3/hr. The deliveries, which will extend from 2019 to 2024, will include connectivity units in addition to the systems themselves. These units will provide remote access to operational performance data from the installed systems, intended to secure long-term compliance with ballast water treatment regulations when combined with scheduled service support.
