Hyde Marine Marks 300th Hyde GUARDIAN® Ballast Water Treatment System Sold, Continues Success In Compact Footprint Applications

Hyde Marine, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Calgon Carbon Corporation (NYSE: CCC), announced that its Hyde GUARDIAN ® model HG150 Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) will be installed on a tug boat for an articulated tug barge (ATB) being built by VT Halter Marine for Bouchard Transportation Co. – making it the 300th Hyde GUARDIAN unit sold.

Additionally, two Hyde GUARDIAN Gold™ (HG1000GX-ATB) units were sold by W&O Supply, Hyde Marine’s exclusive sales distributor in the U.S. and Canada, for the corresponding Bouchard Transportation ATB being built at VT Halter Marine’s Pascagoula, MS, facility. The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold units will be placed on the deck of the vessels, allowing the operator to optimize space for cargo and crew.

According to John Platz, President of Hyde Marine, the announcement is testament to the Hyde GUARDIAN technology’s continuing acceptance as of one of the maritime industry’s most advanced ballast water treatment systems.

“Hyde Marine is committed to meeting the needs of ship owners and operators. Through our partnerships with organizations, such as W&O, we are in a unique position to help the maritime marketplace address ballast water treatment compliance,” he said.

Hyde Marine BWTS are ideal for vessel applications that have short runs, operate in multiple salinities, or require quick turnarounds. Hyde GUARDIAN systems provide a safe, efficient solution to meet ballasting needs without interfering with vessel operations or requiring extra crew time.

The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS is ideal for retrofits as it provides the compact size required by a growing number of ship owners and operators, while maintaining the robust construction and technological specifications necessary to meet stringent ballast water treatment regulations.

The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold’s rapid acceptance by the industry is also being demonstrated by installation of two systems (each with a 1000 m 3/hr flow rate) on a new ATB being built at Bay Shipbuilding Co., (BSC) in Sturgeon Bay, WI. BSC is a division of Italian-based Fincantieri Marine Group and specializes in large ship construction projects. The barge is being constructed for Moran Towing, a leading provider of marine towing and transportation services across 16 U.S. ports.

Hyde Marine also announced retrofit installations are now scheduled for eight cable laying ships for TE SubCom’s Reliance Class vessels, which are specifically designed and constructed for cable maintenance and construction, trenching, mattressing, and salvage operations. The installations will feature HG150 units.
