Incorporating Clean Shipping International


Wednesday, October 10, 2018 

Norwegian shipyard Fitjar Mekaniske Verksted has contracted PG Flow Solutions to supply the ballast water treatment system (BWTS) to a wellboat under construction for Hordalaks, owned by fish farming companies Blom Fiskeoppdrett, Kobbevik & Furuholmen Oppdrett, Fremskridt laks, Fylkesnes Fisk and Engesund Fiskeoppdrett.

Under the contract, PG Flow Solutions will supply its IMO approved PG-Hyde ballast water treatment system, which is based on medium pressure UV technology, in combination with automatic, self-cleaning filters. The PG-Hyde ballast water treatment system sterilises the ballast water at both ballasting and de-ballasting, ensuring high level of quality and reliability. The BWTS system will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2019.

“Fitjar Mekaniske Verksted has over the past decade managed to position itself as the most complete shipbuilder within the aquaculture industry. To be chosen as its subcontractor is therefore, as we see it, an important quality stamp for our ballast water treatment systems. We look forward to cooperating with the yard on the Hordagut newbuild,” said Øyvind Berg, vice president sales & marketing at PG Flow Solutions.

The wellboat will primarily work for these companies which collectively hold 25 fish farming licenses in Hordaland, Norway.

Separately, PG Flow Solutions was earlier this month awarded a contract to supply a seawater circulation pump system to the Hordagut wellboat, as a subcontractor to MMC First Process.

PG Flow Solutions provides proprietary solutions, systems and products for companies within the energy, maritime, aquaculture and land-based process industries. The heritage of the business is pumps and pumping systems. Its main manufacturing sites are located in Sande, Vestfold, Norway, and Worcester, UK. The company also has a fabrication site in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, and a service set-up in Ningbo, China.
