The first two months of the year have been very hectic and successful for Norwater AS. In total 24 Reverse Osmosis Freshwater Maker systems have been sold and 110 units of NorBarrier SB4 & SB5. Norwater AS’ orderbook has by this grown to 25MNOK by end February.
Following the Odfjell deal end of last year, a similar batch of deliveries has been awarded by Team Tankers International in Denmark. Yet again the NWC3-60/48 has been selected as the preferred option for the production of water for cleaning of tanks on chemical carriers. Adding to successful deliveries to two other Team Tankers ships recently, TTI has ordered 17 more in February. Norwater has also been appreciated by clients in the home market. Both Kleven Verft and VARD Brattvaag has secured delivery slots in Norwater’s 2016 production program.
We are especially enthusiastic about being selected as supplier to a newbuilding for the salmon industry in Norway (“Brønnbåt”). The vessel will have two systems with a total production capacity of 720,000 litres per day. With this contract Norwater has secured a reference and foothold in a new and very attractive market. This is of course very satisfying considering the current slowdown in the offshore market which has represented a major part of Norwater deliveries over the years.
