Press Release: Norwegian ballast water treatment system maker Optimarin says it will be offering shipowner customers a five year parts and servicing guarantee.
The company says it is one of the first to do so. Optimarin’s system was one of the first to gain IMO type-approval and is still one of only a handful of systems that have been type approved by the US Coast Guard.
The company says it has over 330 installed units, with the first being installed in 2000 onboard a cruise ship, Princess Regal. It also says it has an orderbook of 520 units.
“We thought it was time to demonstrate our long-term faith in our system and absolute commitment to this segment,” said Optimarin CEO Tore Andersen in a statement. “If a shipowner signs a framework agreement with Optimarin for installation on multiple vessels, we will provide them with a five-year contract that covers all parts and servicing, worldwide. This is our promise of reliable, safe and effective operations, and, with our total regulatory compliance, complete peace of mind.”
