Techcross succeeded in signing a deal with Dutch fleet

Sep 16 2021


Techcross Europe Office signed a contract to install a ballast water management system on the fleet of Anthony Veder Rederijzaken B.V. (hereinafter referred to as Anthony Veder), the Dutch leading gas carrier.

Through this order, Anthony Veder's 13 vessels will be equipped with a direct electrolysis ballast water management system, Electro-Cleen System (ECS). Depending on the size of the vessel, products with 300 to 450 tons will be delivered sequentially by 2024, and delivery to the first vessel will begin immediately from the third quarter of this year.

 

Founded in 1937, Anthony Veder is a shipping company specializing in the transportation of petrochemical products such as gas, LNG, and LPG, providing stable and high-quality services worldwide. Currently, 31 vessels are being operated, and in order to comply with the BWM Convention enacted by the IMO, various ballast water management systems have been listed as candidates since 2019 and suitable products have been thoroughly reviewed.

 

The main determinant at this time was the low maintenance and operating cost (OPEX). As the ballast water management system is used for a long period of time throughout the operational period of the vessel, even if the initial purchase cost is low, but the replacement parts or OPEX are high, the overall cost used during the life of the system will eventually increase significantly. Considering this, the ECS by Techcross received high evaluations for its low power consumption and low OPEX with just a single treatment during ballasting, as well as being a semi-permanent product that does not require replacement of separate equipment during the period of use.

 

“As we provide system installation and service over the next several years, we hope to maintain a continuous and steady partnership between the two companies,” said the representative of Techcross Europe Office. In the meantime, Techcross has been promoting under the slogan "SAVE OPEX SAVE EARTH" since the beginning of this year, with low OPEX and convenient maintenance.
