[News] Acquired DNV GL TA for ECS-HYCHLOR

2020/02/13

 ECS-HYCHLOR, a new product of an indirect electrolysis-based BWMS, developed by Techcross, received type approval from DNV GL on February 10, 2010. This approval covers ECS-HYCHLOR at full capacity from 300 to 8,000 tons, non-explosion proof, and explosion proof as a whole in line with the standards of the DNV GL as well as the requirements of the IMO BWMS Code, which enters into force in October 2019.

 In addition, the application of USCG type approval of ECS-HYCHLOR was already submitted and listed on January 13th. It has now entered its “Under Review” stage. As we have successfully completed all tests and paperwork on the performance and environmental test of ECS-HYCHLOR based on our knowledge and understanding of the ECS, the existing direct electrolysis method, we expect USCG type approval in the first half of this year at the latest.

 Meanwhile, beginning with thet type approval for ECS-HYCHLOR by the Norwegian government, Techcross will sequentially carry out work for type approval in other countries, including the Republic of Korea. Accordingly, Techcross has been able to selectively offer two types of electrolysis products according to the preferences of ship owners and the characteristics of the ships. Therefore, it is expected that Techcross' future market position will be further strengthened.
