Ship Type : 98K Post Panamax Bulk Carrier
Model : ECS 1800 X 2sets
A leader of BWTS, Techcross, has installed Electro-Cleen™ System to newly developed post panama bulker for the first in the world.
ECS is scheduled to be installed in the 16 series ships. Among 16 series ships, First ship (Post panamax, 98,000 DWT Bulk Carrier) has already been delivered to shipowner on 8th of April, 2011. ECS has been successfully installed in July of 2010 and finished sea-trial test.
2 sets of ECS 1800 are installed in E/R room. Despite a large size, it was possible to minimize the space of Electro-Chamber Unit (ECU) by installing it vertically. In spite of a large size vessel, because ECS was already considered and its drawing was based on ECS to be installed, it could save significant time of installation and sea trial.
It is the first time to have ballast water treatment system installed in such a Post panama bulker so it dragged BWTS market’s attention. The sales representative of Japan stated that huge demand to see ECS in person increases after its delivery.
A shipyard is reviewing additional installation of ECS beside Post Panamax bulkers. It proves the excellence of ECS. In addition, inquires regarding installation of ECS to vessels with over 5,000㎥ ballast water tank which ballast water treatment system needs to be installed by 2012 are keeping increasing.
