M/S Skåne BWTS installation

Shipping’s increasing environmental obligations pose retrofit challenges for even the most well-designed of ships. Invariably, Team Electric is ready to offer the solutions. 

The Challenge 

In a recent example of its ability to deliver turnkey services ranging from basic and detail design to pre-commissioning, Team Electric took full responsibility for project-managing the installation of two ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) on board Stena Line ferry Skåne. Offering 3,295 lane meters for road vehicles and 1,110 lane metres for railway vehicles, Skåne is the world's largest multi-purpose ro-ro/train ferry. 

Team Electric solutions

The 42,800-GT vessel – which operates between Trelleborg, Sweden, and Rostock, Germany – features one ballast water room forward and one aft, with Team Electric installing a 500-m3 standard Alfa Laval PureBallast BWTS in each.

Specialists from Team Electric also took responsibility for the following:

  • Basic and detail design
  • Project management
  • The supply of all installation materials
  • 3D scanning and design
  • Mechanical work for new frames and foundations
  • The installation of glass-reinforced epoxy piping
  • Pre-commissioning

Having successfully completed over 1,000 marine projects to date, Team Electric has considerable expertise in the passenger vessel segment, where it has delivered turnkey electrical design, procurement and installation services to ferries and cruise ships alike.
