Alfa Laval signs contracts for 40 plus 40 ballast systems
Swedish ballast treatment system maker Alfa Laval has signed three-year frame agreements for large numbers of its PureBallast ballast water treatment systems.
The company has reported that it has signed two frame agreements, running over the coming three years. The agreements comprise firm orders to deliver Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 to about 40 vessels, with options covering another 40 systems.
Even as the shipping industry has been heavily hit by the current pandemic, Alfa Laval has continued working closely with its marine customers to secure their daily operations and keep them prepared for tomorrow. “We are proud to have secured these orders – especially in these challenging times,” said Sameer Kalra, President of the Marine Division and continues, “This confirms PureBallast 3’s status as a market-leading solution, while also proving that our focus on business continuity has been successful. We have worked hard to ensure that we remain close to our customers and can support them when they need us, despite the limitations imposed by the pandemic.”
The value of the firm orders is approximately SEK 100 million, including Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 systems and in some cases, also deck houses and booster pump units.
