Damen Shipyards has established three strategic partnership agreements with major Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) system suppliers. It complements the worldwide One Stop BWT Retrofitting Service offered by Damen. This One Stop Service gives ship owners peace of mind in their challenge to comply with ballast water regulations in the most cost effective and timely way.
With over 60.000 vessels to be retrofitted in the near future there is a need to coordinate and ensure cost effective implementation and life cycle support. With the large number of vessels to be retrofitted, there will be subsequent supply problems for BWT equipment, engineering and class in a booming market. Damen is dedicated to providing a total turnkey package to vessel-owners for BWTS integrations and services.
