Baglietto and BIO-UV Group deal for 10 BIO-SEA Ballast Water Treatment Systems
French UV water treatment specialist BIO-UV Group has signed a major supply deal with luxury yacht builder Baglietto for several BIO-SEA ballast water treatment units for new-build projects.
The agreement, which builds on the success of Baglietto’s BIO-SEA installations over the past two years, will see the BWTS manufacturer roll out ten BIO-SEA L01-0030 low flow systems over the next 12 months.
BIO-UV Group’s scope of supply includes five skid-mounted units for the builder’s 52m T52 line and five pre-assembled modular systems for its DOM 133 line. Each ballast water treatment system will be delivered with a yacht-standard white finish and can treat flow rates up to 30m3/h.
The yard’s technicians will carry out the installation work with the BWTS manufacturer’s Napoli-based certified service partner Tefin Marine Electronics ServiceNetwork, which will also be responsible for the commissioning of each system.
A key requirement was that each modular BIO-SEA unit was supplied compact and pre-assembled prior to delivery for installation simplicity, explained Maxime Dedeurwaerder, Business Unit Director, BIO-UV Group’s maritime division.
“Our BIO-SEA engineering and design team was able to quickly adapt the system to meet the customer’s technical requirements and the limited space available in the machinery rooms“
Each BIO-SEA L-series is made from high-quality marine components and is chlorine/chemical-free. They combine mechanical filtration with the right UV dose disinfection to provide yacht owners with one of the most ecologically safe ballast water management solutions available.
