Techcross announced on 8 September that Turkish ship owner chose Techcross’ ECS (Electro-CleenTM System) for their two 158K Suezmax COTs (Crude Oil Tanker). The ballast pump capacity of these two vessels, built in Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries Co., Ltd., are 2000㎥/h x 2sets and 250㎥/h x 1set.
Through this contract, it is expected that Ex-ECS 2000B x 2 sets and ECS 300B x 1set will be delivered by the end of February, 2017. These vessels have similar design with a 158K Tanker of Greek ship owner who had ordered to Hyundai Samho Heavy Industry in 2015. Techcross’ sales staff says that the reference for the installation on the 158K Tanker last year plays a determinant role in this decision.
ECS, the ballast water management system of Techcross, treats ballast water based on electrolysis technology. It does not need filtration system so that both installation and maintenance are very convenient. In spite of Maritime Industry’s recession, Techcross contracted with ship owner of Hong Kong for two 300K VLCCs in last April. Also, further contracts for four PCTCs and two 50K Tankers from Hyundai Mipo dockyard were signed in June. In case of 50K Tanker, Techcross applied their own installation solution “Engine Room Solution”, registered as a patent certificate in the end of August, which can help to save the installation cost and time.
As of September, 2016, Techcross has contracted over 1,000 orders globally and completed 820 deliveries & installations.
