A unique mix of expertise at your service!

Already in 2008, MossHydro saw a potential need for better filter solutions in the cleaning of ballast water and it was clear that shipboard constraints and the characteristics of ballast water called for innovative solutions.

From 2005 to 2008, MossHydro traveled around the world with our team educating shipowners and yards about the Ballast Water Management Convention and the impact this would have for owners and yards in the years ahead. This activity helped Moss Hydro to build up a brand based on quality and reliability.

During this early phase of development, MossHydro never looked at its own group as component experts, but rather as a team of specialists putting common sense and technology together.

The strategy was to use off-the-shelf filter solutions from the leading filter manufacturers.

Unfortunately, over time, it became clear that Ballast Water Treatment presented new challenges, which the existing filter solutions could not solve.

With the unique experience gained over the years, MossHydro is now well established in the water filtration market. MossHydro is committed to meeting the challenges of all water filtration needs, being Aquaculture, RO, UF, NF, Drinking water, Industrial, Energy, and Marine / Ballast Water Management.

MossHydro has in-depth skills in naval architecture, engineering, vessel operation and maintenance, Ballast Water Treatment as well as filtration in all areas of operation.

This broad competence results in competitive edge. Regulatory deadlines are looming. Flexibility is vital.

In the marine industry, and also other industries, there is a range of challenges:

  • Limited space on installation site, causing requirements for: ...design changes for new builds ...reconstruction and potential structural changes on installation sites
  • Project-specific tailoring - such as flange positioning and explosion-proof electrics
  • Communication with interface system
  • Low water pump discharge pressure
  • Reliable self-cleaning performance

MossHydro has later developed to become a reliable supplier of products for applications with hash working conditions.

A major supplier to the Aquaculture industry where the products are seen as the most reliable in the market.

MossHydro is also known to be supplying products to other applications, where a high level of flow and filtration is a must, with steady operation and minimal downtime.
