BIO-UV Group has received a major order to supply its innovative BIO-SEA ballast water treatment system to a pair of drill ships scheduled to enter the undisclosed operator’s fleet of modern, high-specification vessels and rigs

A modular version from the BIO-SEA B-Series, combining mechanical filtration and UV disinfection, has been ordered by a United Arab Emirates-based offshore drilling contractor, a returning customer for BIO-UV Group, and will be installed on the vessels in India later this year.

This is the latest in a string of orders for ballast water treatment systems the maritime division of BIO-UV Group has received from the oil and gas sector; the recent uptick in the offshore energy business reflects a strong sector looking to invest, having bounced back from the extended downturn precipitated by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The BIO-SEA units to be supplied provide for flow capacities of up to 750 m3/h; the order also includes spare parts and service arrangements.

“We are delighted to have received this latest order for our BIO-SEA B system from an operator in the very demanding offshore energy sector,” said BIO-UV Group chief executive Laurent-Emmanuel Migeon. “This market has extremely high expectations and standards when it comes to HSE as well as quality and performance; this order demonstrates clearly that our UV + Filtration ballast water treatment solutions are extremely relevant for the market, for relatively high flowrate capacities.”
