Systems designed for flexibility in compact spaces
Back to Ships

General Cargo Carriers play a crucial role in the success of maritime operations. Shipowners and operators must rely on a bevy of equipment working in tandem to help them get the job done, while simultaneously complying with a myriad of regulations, including ballast water management (BWM).

One of those crucial pieces of equipment is the ship’s Ballast Water Management System (BWMS). Tapping its expertise in the maritime industry, De Nora is committed to helping vessel operators maintain uptime by ensuring the smooth and reliable operation of their BWMS to achieve environmental compliance.

At De Nora, we deploy a century of environmental leadership for shipowners and operators – providing reliable ballast water management solutions to help ensure their vessels’ compliance with International Maritime Organization (IMO) and United States Coast Guard (USCG) regulations designed to stop the spread of invasive aquatic species.
One of the ways De Nora deploys its suite of BWM technologies for shipowners is through the Hyde GUARDIAN® BWMS, which offers a variety of efficient, cost-effective benefits vessel operators depend on for proper ship operations.

The Hyde GUARDIAN® BWMS was a pioneer in the effective use of ultraviolet (UV) light combined with a proprietary filtration system to deliver the flexibility needed to address a varying types of water quality around the world. And, by enabling vessel operators to adjust the UV treatment dose, the Hyde GUARDIAN BWMS can operate at peak efficiency, so no organisms are left untreated, and no excess energy is consumed.
Ideal for flow rates up to 1000 m3/h, the Hyde GUARDIAN® BWMS offers the maritime industry’s first automated performance analytics solution for ballast water management – the Hyde GUARDIAN Data Log Analysis Utility (DLAU).

DLAU is a predictive maintenance tool, which monitors the health and performance of the entire Hyde GUARDIAN system. Data are shared with both the owner and De Nora technical specialists. Moreover, DLAU is part of a broader cloud-based technology suite – DE NORA VIA™, which offers comprehensive remote support technology and enabling De Nora technical support specialists to remotely connect with crews in real time to provide support services for optimal BWMS operations.

With an intuitive interface, easy integration with the existing automation systems, and a first-of-its-kind feedback alarm to tell crews when the system is not operating inside the boundaries of the Type Approval testing, the Hyde GUARDIAN BWMS is a leap forward in BWM performance and results.

Beyond ballast water management, De Nora helps maritime operators comply with IMO discharge standard for the treatment of offshore and marine sewage. Soon, De Nora will be launching its successor to the De Nora M55, a reliable workhorse of the industry. The new technology will once again will raise the standard by which all other sewage treatment plants will be measured by leveraging two unique technologies to help achieve compliance with new IMO requirements.

Case Study

Hyde Marine completes a second BWT retrofit with Seaboard Marine using our experienced engineering partners to streamline the process.

The Challenge
The Challenge

Despite having previously installed a treatment system on a sister vessel, the engineering work needed to be redone from scratch due to the many differences between the two ships.

The Solution
The Solution

Hyde Marine offers the smallest available system on the market. Using a 3D scan conducted by a partner company, an angled area of the lower engine room bulkhead found that was able to accommodate the major components without taking up deck space.
