BIO-UV Group has partnered with Chantiers de l’Atlantique and will supply BIO-SEA ballast water treatment systems to two cruise ships the shipyard is building for Ritz-Carlton, according to a press release.
The Ilma and Luminara will be delivered in 2024 and 2025, respectively. Both will be outfitted with a BIO-SEA ‘B’-Series B02-190 system capable of treating 190m3/h ballast water flow rates with just two high-intensity, low-energy UV reactors. The system includes a mechanical filtration system that is automatically backflushed to ensure constant and efficient performance, according to BIO-UV Group.
“We are immensely proud to supply BIO-SEA systems to these prestigious vessels. These premium cruise ships are at the cutting edge of environmental technology and an advanced UV-based ballast water treatment means they are safeguarding our oceans from invasive, non-indigenous organisms“Maxime Dedeurwaerder, Business Unit Director of BIO-SEA by BIO-UV Group
