February 8 - Evoqua Water Technologies' SeaCURE ballast water management system (BWMS) is gaining momentum as the company joins forces with Hai Cheung, a Chinese marine equipment supplier.

According to Evoqua, Hai Cheung will support Chinese shipyards with the supply and service of Evoqua's SeaCURE BWMS, and in the second phase of the agreement, the Hong Kong-based engineering company will then produce the SeaCURE system under licence, to facilitate demands from the Chinese market.

Gus Hou, Hai Cheung's manager for the marine equipment business, said: "Over the next three years, we want to grow the business in China and become the first choice for electrochlorination equipment in this market."

Evoqua claims that its SeaCURE system has been developed to meet the IMO and USCG regulations.
