We are proud to announce that Damen Shipyards has selected the Trojan Marinex Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) system for the Government of Australia’s next-generation Antarctic Supply and Research Vessel (ASRV).
“At Damen Green Solutions, we partnered with Trojan Marinex to design a ‘plug-and-play’ installation for DSNS,” says Stefhan van Esch Design & Proposal engineer at Damen. “Together we created a bespoke design that mounts the entire BWMS on a 3m by 1m skid that can be easily and quickly fitted into the available footprint in the engine room. Prior to leaving the manufacturing works it will undergo a factory acceptance test, leaving the simple matter of connecting up the power and the main pipes once it is aboard the ASRV. The Trojan Marinex BWT 250 will then be ready to disinfect and treat up to 250m³ of seawater an hour.”
Low power draw and efficient operability in extremely cold water temperatures were among the deciding factors in the system selection process.
