Ballast Water Treatment in Turkey

In Turkey, our channel partner network includes Esko Marine Trading Ltd Co. Headquartered in Istanbul, Esko represents several marine equipment manufacturers and provides support to the Turkish shipping industry.

In the March 2016 edition of Marine Deal News, Esko’s Managing Director Erhan Esinduy and Director Adem Kocadag were featured in a piece about the Trojan Marinex BWT system. In it they discuss their partnership with us as well as the importance of providing shipowners with dedicated service and support.

“Trojan has the know-how, years of experience and is the world’s largest UV producers,” says Esinduy. “The Trojan Marinex BWT system is like no other in the market – it addresses all the key issues which are of concern to shipowners, including footprint, power consumption and UV lamp life.”
