Are you passionate about protecting the world’s oceans through green technology for ballast water? Are you an experienced maritime sales profile? If you can reply yes to these questions, then we have the right position for you!

On behalf of BAWAT, MARPRO is looking for an Area Sales Manager for a newly established position.

BAWAT is growing rapidly

Bawat A/S is a Danish-owned company that offers a unique green solution for treating ballast water. Ballast water transported by ships must not be discharged into new waters without treatment. The solution is based on using the ship’s waste heat to pasteurise the ballast water. This green technology uses neither chemicals nor additional energy, which makes it unique among the market’s competing solutions. It is IMO and USCG approved, patented, and still also holds great development potential. Bawat A/S has already sold ballast-water installations to several of the world’s leading shipping companies. The market is very attractive, since the world’s collective fleet of ships – large and small, new and old – are now obliged legally to only discharge treated ballast water. Moreover, a unique feature of the technology is that it can be used to great advantage in both ports and shipyards.

You know how to translate complex technical issues to layman language, and you are confident performing presentations for a large group of people. You probably already work for a supplier in the maritime industry.

  • Strong verbal and writing skills in English
