TeamTec marks one year with Oceansaver® BWTS, adds to order book 

September marked one year with TeamTec Oceansaver®. Following the bankruptcy of the former OceanSaver AS in September 2017, TeamTec gained control of Oceansaver ballast water treatment system. TeamTec provides service and spare parts to existing customers with an Oceansaver ballast water treatment system, as well as offering new IMO and USCG approved systems. “It has been a very exciting year since we got Oceansaver® BWTS system on our hands”, says Edvin Tunheim Tønnessen, Head of Sales & Projects BWTS at TeamTec. “Oceansaver® BWTS is an excellent product with high quality and a unique focus on safety. There has been no need to make significant changes the product itself. We have worked intensely the last year to incorporate the BWTS in our own existing systems. TeamTec is a well-known brand, with over 30 years of experience in the maritime industry. Our customers recognize us for our dedication to quality and our superior lifecycle service. We want to ensure that our customers experience the same TeamTec feeling for Oceansaver® BWTS as well. We are not fully there yet, but we are definitely on the right track.”

The last year for TeamTec has also been about optimizing engineering and production, as well as ensuring worldwide coverage for sales and service. While TeamTec’s main office is located in Tvedestrand, Norway, Oceansaver locations in Drammen, Norway and Busan, Korea have been maintained in addition to the TeamTec offices in Shanghai and Singapore. Production of the BWTS has been moved from Drammen to TeamTec’s own production near Risør, Norway. In addition, a brand-new test facility for BWTS has been opened in Risør. TeamTec ensures worldwide availability of service personnel, with service engineers located around the globe. Dedicated Oceansaver sales agents are present in Japan, Greece, Brazil and the US, while the main sales activities are handled from Norway. “At TeamTec, we always focus on being available worldwide, both when it comes to sales and providing service and support to existing customers”, says Mr. Tønnessen. “We are constantly adding personnel to our lifecycle service department. In addition to providing service engineers and spare parts for existing customers, we also increase our focus on training. We are improving our training material, offer simulator training, and will also soon launch an Oceansaver® app for our customers. 9th October also marks the date for the first TeamTec Oceansaver ballast water management technical seminar, to be held in Singapore.”

After a year focusing on implementing Oceansaver® Ballast water managment system at TeamTec, the company is now turning the focus more towards new sales. “It has been very important to focus on correct implementation in our systems and organization”, says Mr. Tønnessen. “This will benefit both ourselves and all our customers and ensure TeamTec quality throughout all projects. We have secured some new orders even during our implementation process, including systems to large players like BP and BW. The last few weeks we have seen an immense increase in inquiries, and we are very much looking forward to the months and years to come”. The newest order for TeamTec was added as late as last week of September, a retrofit project for Bergshav. “It is great to see that our hard work is already giving results”, says Mr. Tønnessen. “Our organization for project engineering, production and lifecycle is set for the future. With TeamTec Oceansaver ballast water managment system, our customers can expect excellent products and outstanding support from a well-known and financially stable company. We will ensure that TeamTec Oceansaver® BWTS will be well taken care of and respected for years and years to come.”
