the Team of ERMA FIRST has accumulated about 120 man-years of installing, commissioning, and supporting marine equipment.
ERMA FIRST has designed a system that meets the requirements of IMO, USCG and all major Class Societies. ERMA FIRST BWTS FIT holds IMO Type Approval and US Coast Guard Type Approval. Having chosen the most challenging waters in the world to perform all the necessary tests, the system has proven itself capable of operating in extreme conditions of high sediment, low temperature and low salinity. Unlike its competitors, ERMA FIRST promotes the same, reliable systems and technology from day one.
ERMA FIRST FIT BWTS has optimised power consumption, leading into a very low-level average. The power application is constantly adjusted according to the given concentrations of the in situ produced chlorine. At the same time, the high efficiency power supplies - along with the design and materials selected on electrolysers - reduces any unnecessary power losses. Moreover, 'same operational mode' covers all kinds of waters and IMO or USCG regulations.
