OceanSaver sails past 10th anniversary milestone with record sales

OceanSaver has received a birthday present to remember. The Norwegian firm, an established leader in providing efficient and reliable ballast water treatment (BWT) systems for medium and large vessels, has just marked its tenth birthday with the news that 2013 will be its best ever year for sales.

CEO Houtan Houshangi has revealed that the company has secured over 50 orders for its modular Mark II system in 2013, spanning a diverse array of shipping segments. This pushes the number of systems on OceanSaver’s order book above the 100 threshold, with 30 units already installed.

Houshangi is in no doubt about the reasons behind this success: “We now have a decade of industry experience and are acknowledged as one of the true pioneers in the BWT sector,” he says. “The constant development of our expertise over ten years has paid huge dividends, and that is clearly illustrated by the advanced nature of the Mark II unit.”

OceanSaver’s system, which was recently awarded US Coast Guard (USCG) AMS approval, has found favour with owners and operators in key segments such as LNG and LPG carriers, bulk vessels and VLCCs, to name a few. Recent contracts include system orders for LNG and LPG Gas carriers.

Houshangi says of the Mark II proposition: “It offers a small footprint, proven technology – combining the best in filtration technology with unique, proprietary electrodialytic disinfection - and an easy to maintain nature. Its performance, ease of installation and treatment efficacy makes it equally as attractive for both the newbuild and retrofit markets.

“Our target customers across the world appreciate this, with orders coming in from all major shipping markets, including key yards in Japan, South Korea and China.”

OceanSaver is jointly owned by BW Ventures and Investinor and employs 40 people globally through its three office locations in Drammen (near Oslo), Shanghai and Busan.

Mr Sverre Prytz, Managing Director of BW Ventures, says of the latest developments: “The combination of record sales and the company’s tenth birthday really give the team reason to celebrate. We are fully committed to supporting the company as it looks forward to emulating this success in the years to come… and we’re confident of a very bright future together.”

Mr Geir Ove Kjesbu, Managing Director of Investinor, says of 2013’s performance: “In a difficult market for BWT suppliers, with continuing procrastination over the IMO’s Ballast Water Management convention, this performance is all the more remarkable. It demonstrates that customers now value OceanSaver as the safe, compliant and quality choice for BWT.”
