Desmi Ocean Guard and its Cyprus distributor Navkratis report that Mastermind Shipmanagement (MSM) has selected Desmi's CompactClean Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) for installation on its owned fleet consisting of dry-bulk, break-bulk, multipurpose vessels, and cement carriers.

The agreement is to provide 13 CompactClean BWMS and engineering services to MSM's modern fleet. Most of the ships will be retrofitted with the CompactClean Bulker that is optimised for operation of bulk carriers and other vessel types that can benefit from increased flowrate when discharging ballast water. The bulker solutions also enable optimised performance when the BWMS is operating in IMO waters.

“Mastermind is a well-known and respected company for its modern and efficient fleet and management. The fleet of ships owned and operated by MSM is designed to meet future environmental standards, and as such, the ships are very well prepared for installation of BWMS. Most of the installations are to be carried out during navigation of the vessel, which imposes extra challenges on the BWMS to be retrofitted. Obviously, the BWMS must be simple and easy to install, but must also be reliable and easy to operate, not to complicate the ballast operations. Therefore, we are very proud that MSM decided to install the CompactClean BWMS after a very careful evaluation process,” said Rasmus Folsø, CEO Desmi Ocean Guard.

Navkratis was central in making the agreement possible by supporting all involved parties locally. GM Navkratis Menelaos Demetriou said: “We are really proud and delighted that a reputable ship owning company like Mastermind - based in Limassol, Cyprus - has selected to install the CompactClean system on its entire fleet, which is setting the standard within the ballast water treatment industry for its versatility, simplicity, reliability, and operational performance."
