TECO 2030 has received an order for a ballast water treatment system (BWTS), powered by BIO-SEA, to be fitted on board a small expedition ship.
The order came from CMI Ship Management for the ‘Quest’ and was worth about NOK800,000.
This marks the fifth BWTS system CMI has ordered from TECO 2030’s team based in Miami, Fla.
TECO’s system complies with the new G8 rules, which came into force in October, 2020. The company’s BWTS complies with IMO and US Coast Guard rules.
“The sale of existing and proven technology to reduce emissions and pollution from ships, means TECO 2030 will have meaningful revenue streams while we work on our most ambitious project, the development of the TECO 2030 Marine Fuel Cell, a hydrogen-based fuel cell specifically developed for maritime use,” says Tore Enger, Group CEO of TECO 2030 (pictured).
“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,” Mr. Enger added.
