Hai Cheung to manufacture Evoqua BWMS in China

Dec 08 2017


Evoqua Water Technologies has initiated the second phase of its partnership with Chinese marine equipment supplier Hai Cheung Trading.

In addition to the partnership agreement signed in February, which initially covered the sale and supply of Evoqua’s patented SeaCURE system into the Chinese market, Hong-Kong based Hai Cheung will now manufacture and distribute the BWMS under license in China.

 

Speaking at Marintec, where the agreement was officially endorsed, Lars Nupnau, Evoqua’s director for global business development, ballast water, said: “We are delighted that we have found in Hai Cheung a competent partner that has the technical expertise and know-how to manufacture the SeaCURE system on our behalf.”

 

Randolph Zhang, President of Infinitus Holdings, Hai Cheung’s parent, said: “The evolution of our partnership with Evoqua is an important milestone in the Chinese ballast water treatment market. The Asia/Pacific region is expected to witness fast growth for ballast water treatment system installations. Hai Cheung can now provide that market with Evoqua’s electrochlorination technology built locally.

 

“The Chinese ballast water treatment sector is expected to experience rapid growth over the next several years and the agreement we have signed today we expect will enable both Evoqua and Hai Cheung to be at the very forefront of that market,” he said.

 

Ian Stentiford, Evoqua’s senior vice president, Electrocatalytic Systems, said: “A locally-built, supplied and serviced ballast water treatment system is a key procurement factor for Chinese shipowners, shipbuilders and repairers. That we can now jointly serve the Chinese market with high-end electrochlorination technology, proven to meet the demands of in-service operation, we believe will result in the SeaCURE System being considered the system of choice for Chinese shipowners.

 

“By combining the knowledge of our two organisations we can provide a robust and bespoke ballast water service for all our customers in the area,” he said.
