BWC and ERMA FIRST have agreed a collaboration which will increase the ballast water management options available to the shipping industry.

Ballast Water Containers CEO, Richard Lawson comments, “We were delighted to be contacted by ERMA FIRST and after working closely with their technical team over the past three months we are now extremely pleased to be able to offer a containerised version of the ERMA FIRST FIT system. A ship owner can now reduce yard installation time and achieve a better control of their budget by ordering a pre-fabricated, pre-installed BWC ERMA FIRST container or deckhouse.”

Konstantinos Stampedakis, Managing Director at ERMA FIRST S.A., states, “We are very eager to start our cooperation with Ballast Water Containers and we are proud to have such a well-established company as a part of our team. Our aim has always been to satisfy our customers offering them innovative, high quality systems and services. In this sense, we believe that this containerised version of our system will facilitate our clients as well as the installation process.”
