Installing ballast water treatment systems as a specialty

In the past period, the focus of the repair yard of Royal Niestern Sander was on the installation of several ballast water treatment systems. For example, the MV Jade, Merel V and Westborg are equipped with a ballast water treatment system; the installation on the MV Edenborg is in the final phase.

Dock facility port of Delfzijl

The facilities of the shipyard are perfectly suitable for the installation of a ballast water management system. In the port in Delfzijl two floating docks, up to 200 meters in length, are available. Here, the MV Westborg and Edenborg were docked.

Slipway at the inner dike facility

In addition, Niestern Sander has an inner dike facility with a slipway of abt. 150 meters. The MV Jade and Merel V were welcomed here in the past weeks her their ballast water treatment system.


In the upcoming weeks, various vessels are expected at the shipyard for similar projects. With this portfolio, Niestern Sander can be considered an expert in the installation of ballast water treatment systems.
