PG Flow Solutions has been chosen to provide the ballast water treatment system (BWTS) for Hordagut, a wellboat under construction by Norwegian shipyard Fitjar Mekaniske Verksted.
A PG-Hyde BWTS will be supplied in combination with automatic self-cleaning filters, to be delivered in Q4 2019. The PG-Hyde is based on medium-pressure UV technology and sterilises ballast water at both ballasting and deballasting.
Hordagut will have storage capacity of 4,700 m3 and will be delivered to Hordalaks, which is owned by fish farming companies Blom Fiskeoppdrett, Kobbevik & Furuholmen Oppdrett, Fremskridt laks, Fylkesnes Fisk and Engesund Fiskeoppdrett who hold a total of 25 fish farming licenses in Hordaland, Norway.
PG Flow Solutions is also providing a seawater circulation pump to the wellboat in a separate subcontract with MMC First Process.
