Optimarin has signed a contract to supply seven of its USCG-approved Optimarin Ballast Systems (OBS) to Fednav, Canada’s largest ocean-going dry-bulk shipowning and chartering group. Five of the units will be fitted on existing vessels within the 63-strong Fednav fleet, with two deliveries set for newbuilds. The order comes on top of agreements for five units made last year, signalling a growing relationship between the two market leaders.
“Fednav is an established, family-owned and first class supplier of innovative maritime transport solutions within the dry-bulk niche,” comments Optimarin CEO Tore Andersen. “With customers and routes in North America and around the world, the firm is dedicated to providing optimal service and requires proven ballast water treatment (BWT) systems that ensure complete global compliance.
