Hyde Marine to retrofit ballast water treatment systems on another seven Royal Caribbean ships

Hyde Marine to retrofit ballast water treatment systems on another seven Royal Caribbean ships

Hyde Marine has been awarded another series of ships for retrofit installation of Hyde GUARDIAN Gold ballast water treatment systems by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

This award for seven retrofit installations will bring the total number of Hyde GUARDIAN and GUARDIAN Gold systems fitted on RCL group vessels to 27 including newbuilds and retrofits.  

RCL is one of seven Hyde Marine customers that have installed 10 or more GUARDIAN systems.

'Hyde Marine has been a valuable partner in assisting us as we navigate the new regulatory requirements for ballast water treatment,' said Michael Jones, vp supply chain management, Royal Caribbean. 'Our crews are pleased with how easily and reliably the systems operate, and with how seamlessly they integrate with existing automation systems,' he added.

Hyde Marine, a wholly owned subsidiary of Calgon Carbon Corp., has sold more than 430 ballast water treatment systems. The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold system uses space-efficient filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships' ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port.

Hyde Marine has completed retrofits on more than 10 RCL vessels, and the orders issued for this next series of ships ensures the supply of treatment systems through 2016 in accordance with the compliance dates for each vessel.
