ERMA FIRST has received the coveted South Korean flag Type Approval for its market-leading ERMA FIRST FIT ballast water treatment system.
warded by the administration of the Republic of Korea, the ERMA FIRST FIT BWTS is now one of the few non-domestic systems to hold such Type Approval, which is an essential requirement for systems being installed on South Korean flagged vessels.
This Type Approval opens up a whole new market for the ERMA FIRST FIT BWTS ahead of the D2 Ballast Water Performance Standard deadline, in September 2024.
… said Konstantinos Stampedakis, Co-Founder & Managing Director, ERMA FIRST
The ERMA FIRST FIT BWTS is a modular system suitable for both newbuild and retrofit projects. The major components of the system include a high-end backwash filter and electrolytic cell. Furthermore, the system covers a capacity range of 50 – 3740 m3/hr.
There is a huge opportunity to support vessels under the South Korean flag to meet the BWMS D2 standard using ERMA FIRST’s reliable and proven technologies, and Magna Mare is proud to serve ERMA FIRST and its customers in the region.

To remind, ERMA FIRST received another approval, by Lloyd’s Register, for their post combustion Carbon Capture & Storage System (CCS) which system absorbs CO2 from a vessel’s exhaust gas that is heated to capture CO2 and then liquefied and stored cryogenically onboard.
