DESMI Ocean Guard A/S wins Fleet-wide Contract for Supply of CompactClean

Aalborg, Denmark, January 18, 2018 – DESMI Ocean Guard A/S is proud to announce that a contract for fleet-wide supply of CompactClean Ballast Water Management Systems has been finalized with Turkish company: MISHA Shipping.


DESMI Ocean Guard A/S has won a contract for supply of CompactClean Ballast Water Management Systems (BWMS) to the entire fleet of Turkish shipowner MISHA Shipping. The contract includes delivery of 10 CompactClean BWMS in sizes from 340 to 750 m3/h. First system is to be delivered later in 2018.


MISHA Shipping is a privately held Turkish company with both shipping and shipyard activities. The vessels are shallow-draft dry cargo vessels primarily designed for operations in Russian inland waters, Black Sea and Mediterranean ports, as well as a new generation of sea-river vessels optimized for navigation in Volga and Don channels and unrestricted navigation at sea. MISHA shipping went through a thorough selection process before the CompactClean system was chosen, and a recent news update on their website explains the process and why they selected the CompactClean system from DESMI Ocean Guard: http://www.mishaship.com/en/desmi-to-supply-its-compactclean-type-ballast-water-management-systems-for-our-entire-fleet-3251/
Some of the reasons presented are:


 “Initially we have studied pros and cons between UV systems and Electro-chlorination systems and ended up with UV types which do not have any salinity or temperature limitations since our fleet sails into rivers and icy waters.”


“Reliability of the maker: … Having more than 180 years of history, we rely on DESMI to be in the market also in the future.”


“One of the features of DESMI’s CompactClean system that we really like is the dry-running protection backed up with a recirculation system by the backflush pump which comes standard and can also be used as a stripping pump during stripping of ballast tanks


“We found DESMI’s CompactClean system having one of the smallest foot print in the market, fits perfectly into our crowded engine rooms”
Rasmus Folsø, CEO of DESMI Ocean Guard, comments: “We are pleased and honoured to be selected as supplier of BWMS to MISHA Shipping’s entire fleet. With the CompactClean system, we have managed to develop a system that can treat ballast water everywhere in the world and meet both IMO (International Maritime Organisation) and US Coast Guard standards. The system is free of any troubling operational limitations and can treat water independent of its salinity (fresh, brackish, and marine water) and temperature. Features that are important to a ship owner like MISHA Shipping. However, just as important to MISHA is the fact that we belong to the DESMI Group of companies having more than 180 years of history and a global presence with worldwide service network. This provides confidence that we are here to provide support to MISHA for many years to come.”


The CompactClean BWMS consists of an automatic backflushing filter, a UV unit, valves, sensors, and controls. The UV unit has a unique and patent pending shape, which is the result of hundreds of state of the art numerical simulations. This shape ensures optimum dosage of the UV to all organisms in the water, and the result is a system that meets even the very strict USCG type approval requirements. Furthermore, the system includes many features that are of importance to the daily operation. One example is automatic generation of PDF reports that document all the performed ballast water treatment, in a format that is suitable for submission to local port state authorities and others. Another example is that the system includes a pump that can be used as stripping pump under ballast stripping operations, thus solving one of the main problems for ballast water management system installations today.


The CompactClean BWMS is currently undergoing type approval testing according to both IMO and USCG requirements, under the surveillance of Lloyd’s Register. It is expected that type approval certificates will be in hand around June/July 2018.
