May 6 13
Hyde Marine, Inc. announced that it has named W&O Supply as its exclusive sales distributor in the U.S. and Canada for Hyde GUARDIAN(R) Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS). The chemical free Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS uses efficient filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships' ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port. In April 2013, the Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS earned the Alternate Management System (AMS) approval from the United States Coast Guard (USCG). It also received International Maritime Organization (IMO) Type Approval in April 2009 and has Type Approvals from several Class Societies. According to John Platz, President of Hyde Marine, Jacksonville, Florida-based W&O will begin selling Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS effective immediately. AMS approval is an interim measure that allows BWTS to be used on vessels for five years after the vessel is required to comply with the USCG Ballast Water Discharge Standards. The five-year period is designed to allow the BWTS manufacturer sufficient time to obtain U.S. Type Approval and ensure the ship operator's compliance with U.S. ballast water regulations into the future.
