Wärtsilä will retrofit 11 container ships with ballast water management systems for German carrier Bernhard Schulte GmbH & C. The contract is among the largest of its type in Wärtsilä's history.

"This significant order is a clear indication that the major ship owners are actively securing procurement for quality BWMS in anticipation of ratification of the IMO’s ballast water treaty. Wärtsilä has both experience and deep know-how in this field, and can offer reliability and long term support to ensure that customers have the optimal solution for their specific needs," said Joe Thomas, director of Ballast Water Management Systems in Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.
