Dutch-based Greenship recently received an order for two SEDINOX ballast water management systems. These systems will be installed on board vessels owned by Dutch inland and coastal chemical tanker concern Chemgas Shipping. Chemgas has been using the sediment reduction system Sedimentor® for over two years. Reducing sediment in ballast tanks decreases the draft of the vessels by almost 70 mm. This reduces the fuel consumption by almost 3%, the company said.

Last year, Chemgas ordered another two Sedimentor systems for newbuilding vessels. In December 2008, Chemgas asked Greenship to upgrade the order to a SEDINOX® ballast water management system. Delivery will take place during the first half of this year.

The Greenship SEDINOX® ballast water management system is only used during ballasting operations and is by-passed during discharges. The system adds no chemicals, has no moving parts, its compact design fits easily into the engine room and the low power consumption is a maximum. 2kW per 100 cu m.

The ballast water management system was granted Basic Approval by IMO last October. Greenship"s first opportunity for Final Approval is during MEPC 59 (July 2009).
