Prominent Turkish ship owners Advantage Tankers & Advantage Products (with Genel Denizcilik acting as the technical management company), have selected Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 for ballast water treatment throughout their combined fleet. The recently signed fleet agreement covers a range of PureBallast 3 system types, as well as deckhouses and a service agreement.
Advantage Tankers & Advantage Products have a fleet comprising 16 tankers today. To ensure the ballast water compliance of thier vessels, the companies have chosen to work with Alfa Laval. A total of 33 PureBallast systems, including skid-mounted PureBallast 3 Compact systems and PureBallast 3 Ex systems for up to 3000 m3/h, will be retrofitted across the fleet.
“After an in-depth evaluation of the solutions on the market, we concluded that Alfa Laval and PureBallast 3 are the ideal solution for our fleet,” says Aydin Aydin, Energy Manager at Advantage Tankers & Advantage Products. “PureBallast 3 offers reliable compliance with an excellent fit for the very large flows aboard our Aframax, Suezmax and product tankers.”
Extensive deliveries and dedicated service
Alfa Laval’s deliveries to Advantage Tankers & Advantage Products will stretch from March 2019 to March 2021. Besides the PureBallast 3 systems themselves, they will include deckhouse solutions for the five PureBallast 3 Ex systems to be installed on product tankers. For the first year after commissioning, Alfa Laval will also provide a PureBallast Compliance Service Package, which includes testing, calibration, system optimization and crew guidance.
“The PureBallast Compliance Service Package is an important part of our fleet agreement,” says Aydin. “The services it contains will ensure that our systems remain up and running according to their type approvals.”
