TECO2030 has received an order for a ballast water treatment system (BWTS) from CMI Ship Management, to be fitted on the expedition cruise ship ‘Ocean Nova’.
The contract is worth around NOK0.9 mill.
This BWTS order was landed by TECO2030’s team in Miami, US.
TECO2030’s BWTS system complies with the new IMO G8 rules, which were entered into force in October, 2020.
The BWTS also complies with IMO and the United States Coast Guard (USCG) rules.
“The sale of existing and proven technology to reduce emissions and pollution from ships, means TECO2030 will have meaningful revenue streams while we work on our most ambitious project, the development of the TECO marine fuel cell, a hydrogen-based fuel cell specifically developed for maritime use,” Tore Enger, TECO2030 CEO, explained.
“The order from CMI Ship Management, perfectly illustrates this combination of short-term sales and long-term development. By 2024, all ships will need a ballast water treatment system,” he added.
