BluMetric is providing Shipboard Chlorine Dosing Units (SCDU) for installation in  two Joint Support Ships (JSS) that are currently being built by Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards as part of Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS).

The SCDU is as a module that is compatible with any shipboard desalination and/or water purification system and storage supply. The SCDU provides treatment for water from the Reception Station, onboarding/offboarding by way of the Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS), and/or generated by the ship’s treated water systems, for storage in the ship’s freshwater storage tanks.

Features of the SCDU include:

  • Fully automatic real-time monitoring and injection control
  • Automated alert to ship personnel to notify of any water supply issues
  • Chlorination of the recirculated cold water in the distribution system
