French manufacturer of the UV-based BIO-SEA ballast water treatment system, BIO-UV Group has recently announced the extension of its collaboration agreement with France-headquartered shipbuilder and repairer Piriou Group via emailed press release.

“For several years we have had a fruitful relationship with the Piriou Group, which we are now formalising under a new agreement for the supply of ballast water treatment equipment and services,” said Benoît Gillmann, BIO-UV Group CEO and Founder. “This marks an important milestone for the commercialisation of our BIO-SEA ballast water treatment system and expands our network of service partners around the world.”

Currently, PIRIOU Group has construction and repair yards in France, Nigeria, Vietnam and Réunion Island, but are also reported to have significant technical capacity to assist shipowners in their projects to integrate BIO-SEA ballast water treatment systems.

“The PIRIOU Group's work portfolio is very attractive,” said Xavier Deval, Business Director – BIO-SEA, BIO-UV Group. “We have a number of clients visiting ports in northern France, Nigeria and West Africa, so it was important to have a service presence in those areas. The installation in Reunion Island is also very interesting, considering the ease of access to customers operating in South African waters.

“The Piriou Group was looking to include a ballast water treatment solution and can now offer this service to its customers. Piriou specializes in the construction and repair of small and medium-tonnage vessels which perfectly matched the throughput capacity of BIO-SEA systems.”

This partnership agreement covers integration studies, installation of the onboard system, commissioning, maintenance and supply of the system and its spare parts.

The companies report that the partnership will strengthen the technical support capabilities offered to shipowners.
