Ballast Water Treatment Systems Manufacturers

The uncontrolled spread of harmful aquatic organisms by ship ballast water continues to be an important concern for the marine industry. In response regulations mandating the treatment of ship’s ballast water have been promulgated. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has adopted the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments (BWM Code) in 2004, in order to regulate discharges of ballast water management system (BWMS) and minimize the risk of spreading of non-indigenous species. Since 8th September 2017 the Convention is in force.

Ship owners have to install the Ballast Water Treatment System on their ships in order to fulfil the Convention. Continued concerns regarding the spread of invasive organic species have resulted in various regional regulations worldwide. These regulations require shipowners to meet a great number of ballast water requirements. Furthermore selecting of the BWTS is quite comprehensive task and involve a number of stakeholders such as shipowners, BWTS manufacturers, design companies, classification societies, shipyards, other contractors and consultants.

There are a number of technologies available for the ballast water treatment:

  • Physical filtration
  • UV treatment
  • Chemical disinfection
  • Thermal treatment
  • Cavitation treatment
  • Magnetic field treatment
  • Deoxygenation treatment
  • Electric pulse

Usually two or more treatment technologies are used in BWTS on board in order to guarantee that the ballast water treatment process is in accordance with the IMO requirements.

Each BWTS retrofit is a unique project demanding thorough assessment of the installation space on board, cost of retrofit, environment friendliness and ease of maintenance in the course of life cycle. Final selection of the BWTS is at owner’s discretion.
