Retrofit Gijon Knutsen

Project Summary

1200 m³/h BWTS

Gijon Knutsen is a shuttle tanker with DWT of 35168 MT built in 2006. Already in 2011, a prototype KBAL BWTS was installed for KBAL’s IMO type approval testing, this was a containerized system with a capacity of 600m³/h. In 2021 the BWTS was upgraded to KBAL generation 2 which is USGC Type approved. The new system has a TRC of 1200m³/h. The system was successfully upgraded using existing piping, container and pump setup. This reduced the installation time and cost for the USCG retrofit.
