PUREBALLAST 3 RECEIVES CHINESE TYPE APPROVAL

Monday, March 2, 2020 

Alfa Laval says that its PureBallast 3 has become one of the first non-Chinese ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) to be type approved by the China Classification Society, meaning that PureBallast 3 systems can now be installed on vessels that carry the Chinese flag.

For Chinese customers, this provides access to what the company claims is one of the global market’s most respected and successful BWTS.

“Alfa Laval has long had a strong position in the Chinese newbuilding market and has grown considerably in the retrofit market during the last 12 months,” said Peter Sahlén (pictured), Head of Alfa Laval PureBallast. “Now that PureBallast 3 has Chinese type approval, we can support all shipowners who build or sail under the Chinese flag. There are many who see the benefits of a strong international partner in ballast water treatment – one with proven UV technology that can handle large ballast water flows, but also one with global service and support.”

For Alfa Laval, obtaining Chinese type approval is an important step that reflects the company’s lasting commitment to the Chinese market.

“Alfa Laval has had dedicated ballast water treatment resources in China since the signing of the IMO Ballast Water Management Convention,” said Sahlén. “In fact, the majority of our dedicated service engineers are stationed in China, where they are well positioned to support Chinese and foreign customers with the commissioning and service of PureBallast systems. From shipbuilding to the delivery of goods worldwide, China is key to the marine industry. We look forward to deepening our cooperation with Chinese customers and will be proud to see PureBallast 3 systems sail under the Chinese flag.”
