Ship Type : 27K Bulk Carrier
Model : ECS 900 X 1set
TECHCROSS, a leading manufacturer of ballast water treatment system, succeeded in installing the BWMS in a ship in operation. The ship, on which 3 sets of ECS (Electro‐Cleen™ System) 300 model were installed, is a HandySize-class Bulk Carrier belonging to a Korean Shipyard. The installation work was carried out in China.
TECHCROSS obtained a Type Certificate from IMO for its ECS. This has been in operation for about 1 year by installing it to an existing ship during the IMO type approval process. This ship was the first time for the successful commercialization of the ECS.
In this case, ECS equipment was installed in the engine room of the ship with the installation period taking about 1 month including the commissioning. Based on this experience, TECHCROSS will be able to reduce the installation period upto 15 days in next time.
As ECS needs relatively small space for installation compared to systems of other manufacturers and can be installed without considerably changing existing pipelines, it is the easiest product to apply to existing ships.
As TECHCROSS satisfies both shipowner and shipbuilder with superior technology and the best quality, it has advantage over competitors in the retrofit market which is expected to grow explosively.
