BIO-UV, 3C Metal complete OSV BWTS retrofit
BIO-UV Group’s maritime division and its engineering partner 3C Metal have completed the at-sea retrofit installation and commissioning of a low-flow ballast water treatment system (BWTS) aboard Greatship Maya
Greatship Maya is a multipurpose offshore supply vessel operated by Greatship Global Offshore service Pte Ltd (Singapore), a subsidiary of Indian shipowner Great Eastern Shipping.
A BIO-SEA L03-087 modular unit was successfully installed while the 4,350-dwt ship maintained rig supply operations offshore Labuan, Malaysia.
“3C Metal is not only a recognised engineering services provider to the offshore oil and gas sector, but specialises in at-sea installations and engineering. The success of this project is very much testament to the success and strength of this partnership. Together, we surveyed the site, taking 3D scans of the ship’s machinery spaces to simplify pipework, electrical wiring, system integration and installation. This revealed some space limitations which ensured we were able to design and build a ship-specific solution, allowing 3C Metal’s team to get the BWTS in place without modifying the steel structure in any way.“Maxime Dedeurwaerder – BIO-SEA Business Unit Director
