Ship Type : 50K Tanker
Model : ECS 1300B X 1set
Techcross has successfully installed 1 set of non-explosive ECS1300B in the Engine Room of a 50K PC Tanker (Product/Chemical Tanker) with Submersible Ballast Pumps at a Korea Shipyard in December 2012. Techcross has realized an idea for adding a new ballast pump in the E/R and installing ECS in the E/R. Please refer to picture below: “Alternative for FRAMO and E/R BWMS Arrangement Concept”.
Because ECS does not require a second treatment at discharging and discharging water could pass through the original existing pipeline. All other BWMS requiring a 2nd treatment will still need to install the system in an on-deck room.
Even though new ballast pumps will need to be added in the E/R, this is a much more economical solution than building a complete specialized on-deck room.
