Model : Ex-ECS 300 X 1set
TECHCROSS, a leading company in the newly emerging BWMS industry, supplied the world's first explosion-proof BWMSs to one shipbuilder in Japan. The Electro‐Cleen™System was supplied to a shipbuilder in Japan in October 2009, installed in 8,500 DWT Chemical Tankers and delivered to shipowners in December 2009.
The explosion-proof type BWMS developed by TECHCROSS was designed to be safe especially in chemical tankers where there is high risk of explosion. The number of enterprises, including TECHCROSS, who have developed ballast water treatment systems and are commercially available, is about 30~40 worldwide. However, explosion-proof type ballast water treatment systems are known to be very difficult to develop due to ship design and technical limitations.
TECHCROSS overcame these difficulties using original technology. In the shipbuilding and shipping industries, the development of explosion-proof type BWMS is a great achievement. This explosion-proof type ECS, after considering the installation environment in the ship, was installed vertically at the request of the shipbuilder. ECS can be installed horizontally or vertically according to the ship environment without affecting the performance.
One TECHCROSS employee who participated in the installation said that due to the positive cooperation of the Japanese shipbuilder, they were able to install the explosion-proof type BWMS. He also added that he boarded the ship to directly verify the trial test of ECS, along with a Japan Classification NK official and another Japanese shipbuilder, and heard that ECS had been selected as standard equipment.
Park Kyu-Won, of TECHCROSS said, “It is encouraging that we have developed the first explosion-proof type BWMS in the world as well as having succeeded in its commercialization." He added, "It is a good solution for domestic and overseas shipbuilders and shipowners worldwide who are looking for an explosion-proof type BWMS. TECHCROSS is ready to design BWMSs for installation in all types of ships.”
