BWC and Ecochlor agree strategic collaboration

BWC and Ecochlor have agreed to a strategic collaboration which will increase the Ballast Water Management options available to the shipping industry.

Ballast Water Containers CEO, Richard Lawson commented: “BWC have been impressed with Ecochlor’s unique BWT technology and we are delighted that we can now offer a mobile containerised version of the system. Our clients, whether ship owners, barge owners or port service companies will now benefit from having a mobile version of the Ecochlor® Ballast Water Treatment System.

Ecochlor President, Tom Perlich stated: “We are pleased to be working with BWC and believe their methodology will be welcomed by regulators around the world and satisfy a vital portion of the ballast water treatment market including for older vessels that would not incur the expense of installing a permanent system. This technology can extend the useful life of these vessels.”
