Recently, ERMA FIRST has been awarded with the supply contract for the installation of ERMA FIRST BWTS FIT 800 onboard 4 new vessels to be delivered in 2017.
According to Dr. Diamantis Andriotis, CTO of STEALTHGAS, ERMA FIRST’s system was the optimum choice for those new-buildings due to systems’ size, efficiency and quality.
“Major factor in gaining our trust has been the advanced progress of this maker with USCG TA process as well as its straight, clear and uninterrupted course since Day 1. Another advantage considered was ERMA FIRST’s System ability to operate in low salinities (fresh water), without having to nominate a tank to carry seawater.
Having this into a top quality, yet fully competitive, package is what makes operators’ life easier in choosing a long life partner.”
Key driving factors that affected the decision-making process have also been the simplicity of the system’s operation as well as the low operating & maintenance costs associated as well as the lower power consumption.
“We couldn’t have chosen anyone but ERMA FIRST for our vessels as we have been provided with project-specific designs that fully met our requirements” added Dr. Andriotis.
ERMA FIRST is powered by highly competent teams of Designers, Environmental Engineers and Scientific Experts, committed to deliver innovative, patented products, certified by International Classes. BWTS systems are of significant added value, offering cost effective, turnkey solutions to both shipyards and ship owners.
