Optimarin offers five-year guarantee

November 20 - Optimarin is claiming a first for the ballast water treatment (BWT) segment by offering a five-year parts and servicing guarantee.

The Norwegian-headquartered BWT specialist's ceo Tore Andersen says the move has the potential to redefine what shipowners expect from suppliers in this ultra-competitive sector.

"No other manufacturer offers a guarantee of this nature, but we can. So, if a shipowner signs a framework agreement with Optimarin for installation on multiple vessels, we will provide them with a five-year contract that covers all parts and servicing, worldwide. This is our promise of reliable, safe and effective operations, and, with our total regulatory compliance, complete peace of mind."

Optimarin's powerful UV-based system is simple to maintain, with no moving parts, and easy to install on almost any vessel, thanks to its modular nature. In fact, just last month freight ferry operator Seatruck revealed its own crews had installed five systems themselves while its vessels were undertaking operations, with no need to drydock.

The company says its BWT technology is fully approved by both the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and United States Coast Guard (USCG); certification is provided through DNV GL, Lloyd's, RINA, Bureau Veritas, MLIT Japan, and American Bureau of Shipping.

It now boasts more than 330 installed units worldwide, of which over 150 are retrofits, with more than 520 confirmed orders.
