Pittsburgh, PA — June 23, 2015 — Hyde Marine, Inc., has announced the appointment of LEMAG Engineering GmbH as its exclusive sales agent in Germany to help ship owners deploy the chemical-free Hyde GUARDIAN Gold® Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) onto their new builds or existing vessels.
Hyde Marine, a wholly owned subsidiary of Calgon Carbon Corporation (NYSE: CCC), is one of the world’s fastest growing ballast water treatment (BWT) technology companies with more than 420 orders for its ballast water treatment system. The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS uses efficient filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships' ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port.
LEMAG Engineering GmbH is also the German agent for Marine Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems ("Scrubbers") of Clean Marine AS, Norway. LEMAG Engineering GmbH is a subsidiary of LEMAG LEHMANN & MICHELS GmbH, which manufactures a variety of measuring instruments and shipboard emissions reduction technologies.
“Hyde Marine is very pleased to partner with LEMAG Engineering GmbH for sales in Germany,” said John Platz, President, Hyde Marine, Inc. “LEMAG has a more than 100 year history in supplying the marine market with quality instrumentation and equipment, and their excellent relationships with German shipyards and ship owners will be of great benefit to Hyde Marine.”
Hyde Marine also recently initiated Authorized Installation Partner agreements with STX Marine Service Co., Ltd. and Nordic Made AS – further expanding the opportunity for shipbuilders, owners, and operators to receive installation support from highly qualified and experienced marine experts.
According to Platz, Korea-based STX Marine Service will help Hyde Marine provide BWTS solutions to ship owners, particularly in the Far East. Norway-based Nordic Made, which provides worldwide technical solutions, has already completed several retrofit installations on behalf of Hyde Marine and will continue to be an important part of how Hyde Marine broadens its global footprint to meet the growing demand for proven BWT systems.
