Hyde Marine offers both standard and ATEX-rated hazardous area solutions to meet the offshore industry needs. The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold® Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) also has a completely scalable solution. Additionally, the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS has no dwell time requirements. Therefore, vessels that have short runs, operate in multiple salinities, and need quick turnarounds have a safe, efficient solution while not interfering with vessel operations or requiring extra crew time. This may be particularly critical for dynamically positioned units or units taking on ballast for rig moves.

Our typical solution uses standard filters and UV reactors positioned in the rig's pump room or machinery spaces near the ballast pumps. For ATEX-approved systems, the filters and UV reactors are located in the vessel's pump room or may be located in a deck house above the main deck where they may be exposed to hazardous gases. The system power panels are installed in a machinery room, and a control panel is installed in the ballast control room with additional remote panels either in the engine room or directly tied into the rig's automation system to allow operation of the system from numerous locations convenient to the crew. Our fully integrated solution is designed to meet all Class, IMO, and Port State requirements, and our ATEX solutions have been through numerous safety assessments to meet the most current requirements.


Hyde GUARDIAN Gold systems are scalable up to 6000 m3/hr to meet the demands of even the highest flow systems.

Hyde Marine has also designed solutions specifically tailored for the offshore market by providing the ballast water treatment system in a twenty or forty foot container which can be installed on the main deck of the platform adjacent to the spaces containing the ballast pumps to ease installation and lessen impacts in the engine room. These versatile solutions can be purchased as a whole container for quick installation during service with no impact to schedule and no down-time for the rig.
