Ro-Ro / General Cargo Vessels
Hyde Marine offers a compact, customizable solution to meet the specific needs of the cargo ship industry. 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.
Our typical solution uses a component system with filters and UV reactors located in the vessel's engine room near the ballast pumps. Power panels are installed in the ship's engine room or machinery spaces, and a control panel is installed in the cargo control room with additional remote panels either installed in the engine room or directly tied into the ship'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 solutions have been through numerous safety assessments to meet the most current requirements.
Hyde Marine has also designed solutions specifically tailored for the cargo ship market by providing the ballast water treatment system in a twenty- or forty- foot container which can be installed in the hold directly forward or aft of the engine room or even on the vessel's main deck 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 vessel.
Hyde GUARDIAN Gold systems are scalable to meet the demands of even the highest flow systems.
