(Lysaker, Norway, August 15th, 2022): TECO 2030 ASA (OTCQX: TECFF, OSE: TECO) has received an order for 1 TECO 2030 Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) powered by BIO-SEA from CMI Ship Management, for the ship M/V Ocean Diamond, worth approximately NOK 910 000.
This is the 6th BWTS system CMI orders from 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 PEM fuel cell specifically developed for maritime use," says Tore Enger, Group CEO of TECO 2030.
"This order from CMI Ship Management, 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.
