Optimarin has just completed its first revised IMO G8 compliant system installation for the Norwegian Coastguard, cementing its position as a preferred supplier for the fleets charged with patrolling, protecting and maintaining standards in national waters around the world.

“Even the vessels that don’t have to install a ballast water treatment (BWT) system install Optimarin,” smiles Tonje Olafsen, Project Manager at Norwegian BWT pioneer Optimarin. “I think that speaks volumes for our reputation. We’ve been exclusively focused on this specialist niche longer than anyone else – since 1994 in fact – so shipowners and operators know they can trust both our team and technology.

“That’s obviously something that appeals to coastguards, who operate as true industry role models, adhering to the very highest standards… even when they don’t have to!”
