PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Evoqua Water Technologies has signed a sales agency agreement with Duwel Group to market its SeaCURE® ballast water management system for countries in Northern Europe.
Roger Duwel, Duwel Group’s founding Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to have signed this agreement with Evoqua. We are very excited about the opportunities present in what are very important shipping nations and still home to many European shipowners and ship management companies
“We prefer to work with companies with high environmental credentials and technologies fit for the future. The SeaCURE BWMS fits that model perfectly. The small feed electrochlorination technology at the heart of the system is proven technology capable of effective, compliant operation in real at-sea environments. For owners with large pumping capacity, the SeaCURE system ticks all their boxes.”
Mats Bjorkendahl, Evoqua’s Regional Sales Manager, SeaCURE BWMS, said: “Duwel has achieved a solid, industry-wide reputation and considerable success representing manufacturers of equipment at the highest end of the technical and environmental protection spectrum.
“By providing sales and marketing support for the SeaCURE system, Roger and his team will strengthen and support our sales teams in European territories. With a high proportion of shipowners operating in the tanker, bulk and LNG vessels segments, both these geographical and market areas offer important opportunities for both parties.”
Bjorkendahl added: “The shipping industry remains a very personable industry so it is vital any supplier has local people, with local knowledge on the ground in daily contact with local shipowners, fleet managers and superintendents.”
Evoqua’s electrocatalytic division has served the marine industry for decades with its high quality and reliable Chloropac® MGPS (marine growth prevention systems) and in certain marine market segments Evoqua is the market leader.
“However, not everyone knows that the tried and tested electrochlorination technology at the heart of Chloropac system is also the core technology in the SeaCURE ballast water management system,” said Bjorkendahl.
Duwel added: “the SeaCURE system is the only ballast water management system on the market that has an optional dual functionality, as the system can be configured to provide protection against marine growth in critical seawater systems. This provides ship owners with a return on investment and assures compliance with discharge standards wherever the ship may operate.”
