Manchester United has announced a three-year global partnership with Yanmar, Japan's leading engineering company, which contributes to the ground, ocean, and urban environment with its state-of-the-art engine technologies.

Yanmar is one of the world's leading engine manufacturing companies: it has a greater than 60% share in the world's sail-boat engine market and produces more than half of all small-size diesel engines for construction machinery.

Through innovation and support, Yanmar remains committed to nurturing talented individuals across many sectors, ranging from engineers to athletes.

As one of the club's official global partners, Yanmar hopes to extend its long-standing association with Japanese football to the UK and other global markets.

As part of the company's corporate social responsibility policy, it has long-established links with the world's most popular sport, even going as far as establishing its own club in Japan, and has been active supporting talented young footballers in Asia.

Takehito Yamaoka, chairman and president of Yanmar, said: "Since establishing its own team in Japan back in 1957, Yanmar has been championing the sporting ethos football creates, such as hard work, determination and excitement. Many of these traits are still the core values of Yanmar today.

Yanmar has been a staunch supporter of Shinji Kagawa ever since his professional debut at the age of 17, and the enthusiasm for him remains undimmed.

In the words of Ken Araki, Chief Manager of the Brand Management Department:

"As a company that has long been actively involved in supporting both the sport of football and Shinji Kagawa, this partnership is a natural move for us. Since the foundation of Yanmar 100 years ago, we have striven to be the best at what we do in diverse and challenging fields, and with Kagawa playing for the best clubs in the world and giving his all in a wide range of circumstances, we, at Yanmar, see parallels in our situations. We enter into this partnership in a spirit of encouragement and support and with a shared dream. With Manchester United's popularity and presence in Asia and the world, Yanmar is confident that this partnership will promote the company's global presence and activities. "

RWO GL BWM certificate orig

(L to R) Hanspeter Raschle, Head of Marine Products & Manufacturing at GL, Hagen Markus, GL Marine Products & Manufacturing, Steffen Schlöricke, Product Manager CleanBallast at RWO and Martyn Ayris, Managing Director RWO

RWO is the first German manufacturer to obtain a GL certificate for its ballast water treatment unit CleanBallast. The document was handed over the September 2012 at the SMM.

The GL Approval Certificate confirms that the CleanBallast System, with a capacity of 150-3.750 m³/h, complies with the GL regulations. Moreover, the electrical and electronic components fulfil the stricter GL requirements in comparison to the IMO ones regarding environmental assessment (vibrations, low temperatures and damp heat). The electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), which is not taken into account in the IMO-requirements, was also tested. The system related software was also subject to a review according to the GL-guidelines.

The RWO ballast water treatment unit is based on a mechanical cleaning with a filter and a subsequent disinfection. The CleanBallast System includes a back flushing 55micron filter pad, a disinfection unit EctoSys® and a neutralisation unit including the switch cabinets for electricity supply, control and monitoring. The filter pad has a redundant design to ensure an uninterrupted ballast water treatment, even when the filter is being back flushed.

Ballast water is indispensable for reliable and efficient ship operation. It has an effect on trim, draught and stability of the ship for safe navigation. However, the aquatic organisms and pathogenic bacteria carried in the ballast water represent a threat to the environment and biological diversity.

Therefore, the International Maritime Organisation IMO has adopted an independent convention in 2004, the so called "International Convention for the Control and Management of Ship's Ballast Water and Sediments". This agreement comes into force twelve months after the day it has been ratified by 30 states, whose merchant fleet at least represents 35 percent of the global merchant fleet gross tonnage. It is expected that this will be reached in the next six to twelve months and that the agreement will than come into force 12 months later.

Several countries have already introduced national norms to regulate ballast water exchange or ballast water treatment (USA) and specified the necessary documents or requirements on ballast water treatment systems according to the BWM-agreement.
