Bawat A/S Seeks Experienced Technical Manager

Are you passionate about protecting the world’s oceans through green technology for ballast water? Then we have just the position for you!

On behalf of BAWAT A/S, MARPRO is looking for an experienced Technical Manager that can join the management team of Bawat A/S.

Bawat A/S is a Danish privately owned company that offers a unique green solution for treating ballast water. Ballast water transported by ships must not be discharged into new waters without treatment, to avoid invasive species. The economically attractive solution is based on using the ship’s waste heat to pasteurize the ballast water. This green technology uses neither chemicals nor additional energy, which makes it unique among the market’s competing solutions. It is IMO approved, patented and holds great development potential. Bawat A/S has sold ballast-water installations to several of the world’s leading shipping companies and is ready to speed up the commercialization. The market is very attractive, since the world’s collective fleet of ships are now obliged only to discharge treated ballast water. Moreover, a unique feature of the technology is that it can be used to great advantage in both ports and shipyards.
