Condor Ferries

Condor Ferries operates ferry services between mainland England, the Channel Islands, and France. Two Ro-Ro ferries are retrofitted with Wärtsilä’s AQUARIUS READY ballast water management system (BWMS) solution. The AQUARIUS READY concept is a phased installation process and was developed by Wärtsilä to prepare vessels for the fitting of BWMS, while minimising vessel downtime and enabling more efficient operations.

Preparation work onboard the ferries included making the required connections to the main ballast line, installing the bypass and isolating valves, preparing the space needed, and carrying out the foundation work. These tasks were carried out when the vessels were dry-docked. The actual equipment installation and commissioning will take place at a time convenient to the owners following ratification of the IMO Convention.
