OPTIMARIN - LEADING THE WORLD IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF BWT SYSTEMS FOR THE MARITIME INDUSTRY
In 1994 the firm formed as perhaps the first (still in operation) focused purely on the segment – setting out to tackle the serious issue of the roughly 7,000 potentially invasive species carried every single day in untreated ballast water (highlighted by the WWF as the second biggest threat to world ecosystems after climate change). From the outset the team has dedicated itself to creating technology that protects the environment, not only eliminating these unwanted stowaways but also working independently of any chemicals, with no harmful emissions or waste.
First in Ballast Water Treatment
Optimarin is a leading BWT company with international impact, scoring a multitude of firsts on the way to its current position at the vanguard of the rapidly growing ballast water treatment industry. Amongst the 100+ orders Optimarin received in 2018 – taking them to around 700 units sold, with 500 installed, of which 250 are retrofits – there was one of particular note. Recently, Optimarin's Ballast System was the system of choice for nine newbuilds for the United States Coast Guard.
