RO-RO Vessels and Ferries
Most ships simply sail into port and have their cargos loaded directly into their final stowage location. At Hyde Marine, we know that sort of static loading is a luxury your ships simply do not have. With an industry-leading zero-hold-time requirement, the Hyde GUARDIAN® allows you to continually move ballast on and off the vessel to account for cargo movements, shifting tides, ramp angles, and the inevitable challenges that comes with cargo moving around below the deck plates. Our gravity ballasting and deballasting modes give you the flexibility to allow your cargo to set the ballast flow rates, and our industry-exclusive Internal Transfer mode makes sure that as you shift ballast in port or during the voyage, the treatment system does not inadvertently think is it being bypassed.
Since the Hyde GUARDIAN system has been tested in the most rigorous water available, you know we will stand by you no matter how far upriver you need to go in your voyages. Our proven track record during testing in the Baltic Sea over the winter gives you further assurance that when the water shifts to ice, you will not be left stranded without a treatment system. But the real benefit if GUARDIAN is the peace of mind that your crews will not have to focus on ballasting while they need to be attending to cargo.
From our earliest systems, Hyde Marine has been dedicated to serving the unique needs of this very special brand of ship. Click on one of the sample systems below, or build your own Hyde GUARDIAN with our product configuration tool to see what type of system best meets the needs of your unique operations.
With the first of three (and counting) installations in the fleet, Hyde Marine and P&O Ferries begin their working relationship with the installation on the M/V Norbank.
A new dedicated ballast pump was added to the ship for the purpose of ballast water treatment. However, the original pump was still and installed and could still move ballast water with no connection to the newly installed treatment system!
It is important to monitor any means by which the ballast water treatment system can be bypassed. The Ballast Water Management Plan required modification to incorporate the new ballast pump and provide guidance using the “old” pump.
