ULTRAVIOLET light water treatment pioneer BIO-UV Group has signed a contract to supply its BIO-SEA ballast water treatment system for installation aboard two Worldclass cruiseships currently under construction for MSC Cruises at the Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyard at St Nazaire, France.

The contract, which includes an option for an additional two World class vessels, represents the fifixth and 6th BIO-SEA ballast water treatment systems ordered by the Swiss-Italian owner, the world's largest privately-owned cruiseship operator.



The first two Worldclass vessels, scheduled for delivery in 2022 and 2024, respectively, will be MSC Cruises' first cruiseships configured to use liquefied natural gas as marine fuel.



They will each be fitted out with one BIO-SEA B02-0300 skid-mounted unit capable of treating ballast water flows of 300m3/h. The BIO-SEA skids will also feature an embedded power management cabinet for ease of operation.



While containership owners are set to receive a charter market boost from the forthcoming IMO 2020 regulations, as some incumbent vessels are taken out of service for up to 40 days for the installation of scrubbers and will thus require temporary cover, it is generally in the larger sectors that carriers will be seeking replacements.
