Alfa Laval: 35,000 ships in need of ballast water systems

For the first time, the Swedish engineering company Alfa Laval has defined its potential in the years to come as what might be the largest global supplier of especially smoke cleaners, scrubbers and ballast water systems.

The Danish company, Aalborg Industries, is an important part of Swedish Alfa Laval’s major efforts within deliveries of environment and energy equipment for the international shipping industry for the years to come, Alfa Laval said at its Capitals Markets Day in Copenhagen on Tuesday. At the meeting, the top management of the group publicly defined its potential as what might be the largest global supplier of especially smoke cleaners, scrubbers and ballast water systems for the first time. Once the sufficient number of countries has ratified the international IMO Convention, Alfa Laval estimates that 35,000 ships will be in the need of ballast water systems over a ten-year period. Of these ships, 15,000 will be newbuildings and 20,000 will be part of the existing fleet which will need to have the systems installed.

Furthermore, Alfa Laval estimates that the average order value for the systems amounts to EUR 200,000 to 250,000. According to the company, Alfa Laval is the supplier of a market leading solution called PureBallast which is the first solution in the world which makes no use of chemicals for the treatment of ballast water and still complies with IMO standards.
