(Lysaker, Norway, April 13th, 2022): TECO2030 ASA (OSE: TECO) has received an order for 1 TECO2030 Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) from Avangard Shipyards, for the ship AVANGARD II, worth approximately NOK 1 million.
This BWTS order was landed by TECO2030's team in Miami, USA. This confirms TECO2030's position in the market as a preferred BWTS partner and proves our capabilities to cooperate with clients around the world.
Ballasts are reservoirs used to stabilize ships according to their load. In order to prevent invasive species from travelling from one region to another, and possible health issues, a ship's ballast water needs to be treated before being discharged back to sea. Our system complies with the new G8 rules which were put in force in October 2020. TECO2030 Ballast Water Treatment System complies with International Maritime Organization and United States Coast Guard rules.
"The sale of existing and proven technology to reduce emissions and pollution from ships, means TECO2030 will have meaningful revenue streams while we work on our most ambitious project, the development of the TECO2030 Marine Fuel Cell, a hydrogen-based fuel cell specifically developed for maritime use," says Tore Enger, CEO of TECO2030 ASA.
"The order from Avangard Shipyards, perfectly illustrates this combination of short-term sales and long-term development. By 2024, all ships will need a ballast water treatment system," Mr. Enger added.
