Turkish tanker company opts for Alfa Laval BWTS

Jan 04 2019

Turkish-based Advantage Tankers & Advantage Products have signed a fleet agreement covering retrofit and service of 33 Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 systems.

With Genel Denizcilik acting as technical managers, Advantage has selected Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 for ballast water treatment throughout its combined fleet. The recently signed fleet agreement covers a range of PureBallast 3 system types, as well as deckhouses, plus a service agreement.

Advantage Tankers & Advantage Products have a fleet of 16 tanker. A total of 33 PureBallast systems, including skid-mounted PureBallast 3 Compact systems and PureBallast 3 Ex systems with capacities of up to 3,000 cu m per hour, will be retrofitted across the fleet.
“After an in-depth evaluation of the solutions on the market, we concluded that Alfa Laval and PureBallast 3 are the ideal solution for our fleet,” said Aydin Aydin, Advantage Tankers & Advantage Products energy manager. “PureBallast 3 offers reliable compliance with an excellent fit for the very large flows aboard our Aframax, Suezmax and product tankers.”
Equipment deliveries will stretch from March, 2019 to March, 2021. Besides the PureBallast 3 systems, the contract includes deckhouse solutions for the five PureBallast 3 Ex systems to be installed on product tankers.

For the first year after commissioning, Alfa Laval will also provide a PureBallast Compliance service package, which includes testing, calibration, system optimisation and crew guidance.

“The PureBallast Compliance Service Package is an important part of our fleet agreement,” said Aydin. “The services it contains will ensure that our systems remain up and running according to their type approvals.”
