Goltens Green completes second Hyde Guardian BWT retrofit for Seaboard Marine
Goltens Miami and Goltens Netherlands team up for transatlantic BWTS retrofit
Having completed a similar retrofit for the Seaboard Atlantic in 2014, Seaboard Marine , a major container operator in Miami, again contacted Goltens Green Technologies’ specialists in Miami to undertake and manage the end-to-end retrofit of a Hyde Guardian HG250GC ballast water treatment system onboard the Seaboard Patriot.
Goltens’ team in Miami met with Seaboard to discuss the timing and scope of this second ballast water treatment retrofit project. This one was different as it included completing the installation of the system during dry- docking in Rotterdam in October of 2015.
To drive project efficiencies, Goltens Green Technologies in Miami logically proposed that Goltens Green Technologies in The Netherlands manage this project. The project was started in June of 2015 with 3D scanning of the vessel while in port in Rotterdam.
