Ulusoy Selects Trojan Marinex Ballast Water Treatment Systems for Retrofit Project


Paper boatsUlusoy Sealines Management has selected the Trojan Marinex Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) system to retrofit 12 vessels, including bulk carriers.

The project was secured in conjunction with Trojan Marinex’ Turkish channel partner Esko Marine.

As the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Ballast Water Management Convention (BWM) inches closer to ratification, and as United States Coast Guard compliance timelines approach, vessel owners looking to retrofit their vessels are in search of BWT systems that are inexpensive to install, provide flexibility in treating challenging water qualities, and provide the certifications necessary to allow trade anywhere in the world.

Ulusoy Sealines Mangement. has been in the shipping industry for over 30 years, now having a fleet of both Roll-On / Roll-Off (RORO) vessels and bulk carriers. Growth continues due to their focus of providing value-added services to their customers and their relentless pursuit of conforming to all international regulations.

Senior Vice President for Trojan Technologies Christian Williamson said: “Being the first in the world to have submitted for United States Coast Guard Type Approval, we are committed to providing vessel owners the certifications they need to not interrupt their business of trade. Ulusoy required not only regulatory compliance confidence but also a solution that was both compact and seamless to operate, minimizing disruption to the vessel and crew. We are very pleased to be able to meet their needs.”

General manager Mesut Cesur said: “Trojan Marinex is able to offer a highly valued solution – compact, low-power draw systems, an integrated service network, and compliance confidence. We are impressed with their commitment to obtain United States Coast Guard Type Approval, and strongly feel that their systems are the best fit for these twelve vessels.”
