Hyde Marine Announces that Hyde GUARDIAN-US™ Ballast Water Treatment System has received IMO Type Approval: Successfully been awarded IMO Type Approval by Norway under the newly revised G8 Guidelines issued as part of the Ballast Water Management Code and is now available to be purchased and installed by shipowners.
Hyde Marine宣布Hyde GUARDIAN-US™压载水处理系统已获得IMO型式认证，根据新修订的压载水管理系统认可导则G8，该系统已顺利获得挪威的IMO型式认证，现可供船东购买和安装。
PITTSBURGH, PA – 03/16/2020
Hyde Marine, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Calgon Carbon Corporation, has announced that it has successfully been awarded Type Approval by the Norwegian Administration through Norway’s recognized organization, DNV GL, under the newly revised Ballast Water Management Code (BMW Code), also known as MEPC.300 (72). Certification under this newly issued regulatory regime ensures that the Hyde GUARDIAN-US is now available for sale and installation on vessels around the world and will remain so even after the phase-out of the initial IMO Type Approval regime on October 28, 2020. The system is still under review by the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) for Type Approval under the requirements of 46 CFR 162.060.
Calgon Carbon Corporation的全资子公司Hyde Marine宣布，其已根据新修订的压载水管理公约（BMW公约）（也称为MEPC.300（72）），通过挪威公认的组织——挪威船级社与德国劳氏船级社，顺利获得了挪威政府的型式认证。挪威政府根据新颁布的压载水管理公约授予Hyde Marine的这一认证，确保了如今Hyde GUARDIAN-US系统可在全球各地销售和安装在船舶上，即使在2020年10月28日逐步取消最初的国际海事组织(IMO)型式认证制度之后，该认证仍将维持有效。根据《联邦法规》第46篇第162.060部分的要求，该系统仍在接受美国海岸警卫队（USCG）的型式认证审查。
“This is a substantial milestone,” said Chris Todd, Executive Director of Hyde Marine. “This means that over ninety percent of the world’s fleet that does not discharge ballast water in the United States can begin installing the most advanced ballast water treatment system on the market today. There has been growing uncertainty over the availability of systems after the [October 28] deadline and this puts another key name across the finish line and ready to deliver product into 2021 and beyond.”
Hyde Marine执行董事Chris Todd对此表示：“这是一个重大的里程碑”。“这意味着世界上90%以上不能在美国排放压载水的船队可开始安装当今市场上最先进的压载水处理系统。在国际海事组织(IMO)型式认证制度取消的截止日期[10月28日]之后，压载水处理系统市场供应的不确定性越来越大，使得另一个关键品牌准备推迟到2021年及之后交付。”
When the BWM Code was issued first as MEPC 279(70) on 26 October 2016, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) took the stand that ballast water treatment systems need to be certified under a newly revised set of testing guidance or risk having their Type Approvals invalidated two years after the revised test protocols were put into place. When the revised testing procedures were issued in April of 2018, the mechanism was put in place that any system not approved under MEPC.300 (72) could no longer be installed on vessels after 28 October 2020.
“We have been testing and developing our Hyde GUARDIAN-US system since the middle of 2015,” says Hyde Marine Senior Market Manager Mark Riggio. “We could have rushed a product to market. We chose to bring the right product to market and to certify it so shipowners will not have to change models mid-way through the implementation cycle.”
“自2015年年中以来，我们一直在测试和开发Hyde GUARDIAN-US系统，”Hyde Marine高级市场经理Mark Riggio表示。“我们本可迅速将产品推向市场。我们选择将合适的产品推向市场并对其进行认证，这样船东就不必在经修订的测试方案实施周期的中途更换压载水处理系统型号。”
Hyde Marine is one of the world’s most successful ballast water treatment (BWT) technology companies with more than 500 of its ballast water treatment systems sold to date. The Hyde GUARDIAN-US BWTS uses space-efficient filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships’ ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port. The design of the system closely mirrors the existing Hyde GUARDIAN-Gold product, and customers can easily upgrade their existing equipment to meet the new treatment standard.
Hyde Marine是全球最成功的压载水处理（BWT）技术公司之一，迄今为止已售出500多套压载水处理系统。Hyde GUARDIAN-US BWTS使用小空间过滤和紫外线消毒处理船舶的压载水，防止入侵物种在港口之间的传播。该系统的设计与现有Hyde GUARDIAN-Gold产品非常相似，客户可轻松升级现有设备，以满足新的压载水处理标准。
“Hyde Marine has been a leader in ballast water treatment since the drafting of the initial convention,” says Jim Coccagno, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Calgon Carbon. “It should be no surprise to the market that we are ready for this latest regulatory change.”
Calgon Carbon执行副总裁兼首席商务官Jim Coccagno表示：“自压载水管理公约第一版起草以来，Hyde Marine一直是压载水处理领域的领导者”。“我们已经为这一最新的监管变化做好了准备，对市场来说应该不会感到意外。”
The Hyde GUARDIAN-US BTWS was tested with water containing organism counts far exceeding IMO and USCG requirements and was tested with the most demanding water conditions to challenge the limits of system performance. Hyde Marine’s new system features full, automatic flow regulation, an exclusive alarm which provides crews an indication that the system may be operating outside of the as-tested boundaries, and a pioneering dose-based algorithm for ensuring system performance. These revolutionary changes, paired with the new intuitive GUARDIAN interface, mean that ship owners finally have a system that meets their needs for usability, serviceability, and transparency in operation. All in a package that still features one of the smallest footprints in the market.
Hyde GUARDIAN-US BTWS测试的水中微生物数量远远超过国际海事组织和美国海岸警卫队的要求，并在最苛刻的水条件下接受了测试，以挑战系统性能的极限。Hyde Marine新系统具有全自动流量调节功能，如果该系统工作时压载水的流量超出经测试的最大范围，则会向船员发出警报。另外，该系统还采用了基于剂量的开创性算法来确保系统性能稳定。Hyde Marine新系统的这些革命性变化，再加上GUARDIAN新的直观界面，可完全满足船东对压载水处理系统在可用性、可维护性和操作透明性方面的需求。该系统的全部组件集成在一套设备中，但仍然是市场上所占空间最小的产品之一。
While it is important to note that systems installed prior to the expiry of the previously approved systems are still able to be used, owners with existing contracts or agreements may face a sudden need to change suppliers only one year into their retrofit cycle. By ensuring that customers had access to the GUARDIAN-US product in early 2020, Hyde Marine is allowing the market to prepare for these changes and secure supply throughout the entire retrofit cycle without costly restrictions of expensive re-engineering.
Hyde Marine now awaits the results of the U.S. Coast Guard’s review so that the product can also be offered to vessels flying the U.S. flag and those limited vessels that trade to, and discharge ballast in, the waters of the United States.
