Cruise ship ballast water treatment system (BWTS) supplier BIO-UV has signed a co-operation agreement with Norwegian marine engineering and technical services provider TECO Tech
This agreement is aimed at providing shipowners with a complete turnkey solution for the BIO-SEA BWTS.
It was signed by Xavier Deval (pictured), BIO-SEA Business Director, and Tore Enger, CEO of TECO Tech AS at last week’s Nor-Shipping in Oslo, Norway.
“With a history serving the maritime and offshore industries dating back more than 25-years, TECO is a perfect partner for BIO-UV Group,” said Benoît Gillmann, BIO-UV Group’s President and CEO.
“The co-operation agreement fits well with TECO’s strategy of providing a complete suite of environmentally-focused solutions to the maritime and offshore industries, while providing BIO-SEA with greater exposure to markets in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland, and the cruiseship sector,” he said.
TECO is a specialist in BWTS newbuild and retrofit installations, as well as advanced wastewater purification systems (AWP), exhaust gas cleaning systems (scrubbers) and refrigeration equipment.
The company carries out much of the pre-installation and commissioning work while vessels are in service to minimise shipyard costs and off-hire time.
Tore Enger,TECO Tech CEO, said: “We have been looking to partner with a BWTS manufacturer in order to include a ballast water treatment system as part of our ‘Green Package’ concept and BIO-UV Group’s BIO-SEA system is the perfect solution for us and our customers.
“Based on more than 20 years’ experience in ultraviolet-based water treatment technology, BIO-UV Group has developed what we believe is the best and most efficient BWTS on the market. We are very much looking forward to being able to offer BIO-SEA as a turnkey package across all the markets we serve,” he said.
