TORM GOES FOR PUREBALLAST FOR 47 PRODUCT TANKERS

Monday, September 10, 2018 

Danish product tanker operator is to retrofit 36 Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 Ex systems within its existing fleet and fit PureBallast 3 Ex systems on 11 newbuilds.

TORM operates a fleet ranging in size from 35,000 to 114,000 dwt. The company has worked with PureBallast 3 Ex since 2017 and retrofitted its first system in 2018. Having recently ordered PureBallast 3 Ex for newbuild projects in China, TORM will now retrofit the same across its whole product tanker fleet.

“Based on careful evaluation of the solutions on the market and our experience with PureBallast 3 Ex on board, we are confident that Alfa Laval is the right choice for ballast water treatment on our tankers,” said Jesper S. Jensen, Head of Technical Division at TORM. “The system’s high performance, in combination with Alfa Laval’s global presence and service offering, will mean compliance security for our vessels.”

Under the fleet agreement, 47 TORM vessels will be equipped with large-flow PureBallast 3 Ex systems of 2000 m3/h. The deliveries, which will extend from 2019 to 2024, will include connectivity units in addition to the systems themselves. These units will provide remote access to operational performance data from the installed systems, which will secure long-term compliance with ballast water treatment regulations when combined with scheduled service support.

“We are proud that TORM has chosen Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 Ex,” says Anders Lindmark, Head of Alfa Laval PureBallast. “We look forward to supporting TORM’s tanker fleet, both with our leading technology and with the services and knowledge to ensure long-term compliance.”

To acknowledge the signing of the fleet agreement, Jensen and Lindmark made a joint appearance at SMM 2018. Their formal handshake took place on Thursday 6 September at the Alfa Laval stand.
