Optimarin- Hoegh Autoliners
Optimarin wins order for 10 further BWT systems from Höegh Autoliners
Optimarin wins order for 10 further BWT systems from Höegh Autoliners Ballast water treatment (BWT) specialist Optimarin has consolidated its relationship with Höegh Autoliners by securing a new agreement for 10 retrofitted systems. The contract follows previous individual orders over the past two years, with the USCG approved, UVbased technology now set to be on-board 15 ships within the firm’s advanced RoRo fleet.
“This is arguably the kind of contract we value most,” comments Optimarin CEO Tore Andersen. “The fact that Hoëgh Autoliners is an established global leader in its segment is one thing, but the really satisfying aspect is that they’re reordering more of our units because they know they work – day in, day out, delivering optimal, globally compliant operations for their vessels.
“In a segment that is still somewhat defined by teething troubles with technology – a survey by ABS in 2017 revealed that almost half of installed systems weren’t operating properly – our simple, easy to install and maintain technology is the market proven choice. This order is living proof of the faith industry leaders have in our systems and that’s immensely gratifying.
“We believe it’s the effect of trying our technology – once you have there’s no going back.”
