BALLAST TREATMENT SYSTEM ORDER FOR TECO 2013

BALLAST TREATMENT SYSTEM ORDER FOR TECO 2013

Wednesday, July 7, 2021 

Teco 2030 of Norway has received an order for an Eco 2030 Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) from South American bunker supply company Oceanbat, worth about NOK 2.35m.

This ecosystem protection solution order was landed by Teco 2030’s team in Miami, USA. In order to prevent invasive species from travelling from one region to another, and possible health issues, a ship’s ballast water needs to be treated before being discharged back to sea. The Teco system complies with the new G8 rules which were put in force in October 2020. The Eco 2030 BWTS complies with IMO and US Coast Guard rules. 

“The sale of existing and proven technology to reduce emissions and pollution from ships, means Teco 2030 will have meaningful revenue streams while we work on our most ambitious project, the development of the Teco Marine Fuel Cell, a hydrogen-based fuel cell specifically tailored for maritime use,” said Tore Enger, CEO Teco 2030. “The order from Oceanbat perfectly illustrates this combination of short-term sales and long-term development. By 2024, all ships will need a ballast water treatment system.”
