MMC Green: 70 Systems Sold in Two Years

Posted by Irina Tabakina

A 2,800 passenger Ro-Pax ferry being built at Meyer Turku for Tallink, will be fitted with ballast water management system (MMC BWMS) from MMC Green Technology.

MMC Green Technology, a Norwegian manufacturer of ballast water treatment systems, have sold more than 70 systems since it went commercial with their ballast water management system (MMC BWMS) two years ago, with  40 systems installed.

“With 40 systems installed, we are starting to get feedback from the operators,” said Børge Gjelseth, sales and marketing director at MMC Green Technology. “So far, our clients say our system is easy to understand and to operate.” And there is more to come.

“Recently we signed 10 orders, where the vessels and clients consists of two windmill support vessels for Bernhard Schulte built at Ulstein, two general cargo/container vessels for Royal Atlantic Lines built at Remontowa Shipbuilding, three live fish carriers built at Aas Mekaniske; two for Sølvtrans and one for Bømlo Brønnbåtservice.”

A significant part of MMC Green Technology’s order backlog is within the offshore supply market. “However, due to the slow oil and gas market, few new offshore support vessels are being ordered. It is in our strategy to enter new markets, which also the list of new orders clearly indicates,” said Gjelseth.
