According to John Platz, President, Hyde Marine, the partnership agreement means that the Merseyside, UK-based Cammell Laird is ready to install Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS systems for a wide variety of vessel types. We are pleased to partner with Cammell Laird because of its commitment to innovation in the maritime industry, as well as for being a cutting edge engineering specialty company that is focused on meeting the needs of customers, such as the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, said Platz. We are excited about the opportunity to work with Cammell Laird to continue the ongoing growth of the Hyde GUARDIAN Ballast Water Treatment System across the United Kingdom. The Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS process uses efficient filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships’ ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port. In April 2013, Hyde GUARDIAN became one of the first BWTS to earn Alternate Management System (AMS) approval from the United States Coast Guard (USCG). It also received International Maritime Organization (IMO) Type Approval in April 2009 and has Type Approvals from several Class Societies. Tested and validated at the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ), one of the most challenging ballast water test facilities in the world, the Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS ultimately became the first BWTS accepted into the U.S. Coast Guards Shipboard Technology Evaluation Program (STEP), which facilitates the development of effective BWTS technologies for vessel owners seeking alternatives to ballast water exchange. We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with Hyde Marine as we work together to ensure shipowners and operators have access to one of the industry’s leading ballast water treatment technologies,” said Rob McBurney, Commercial Director of Cammell Laird. “Hyde Marine’s commitment to providing superior service and support will drive continued success for Cammell Laird clients as the industry works to comply with pending ballast water treatment requirements.
