Required by IMO

The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) introduced in 2004 the Ballast Water Code (BWC) to address the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments for all sea going ships greater than 400 gt using ballast water. The Ballast Water Management Convention (BWMC) entered into force 8 September 2017. Ships are required to manage their ballast tanks to remove or render harmless the ballast water discharge of invasive species.

Our experience and in-depth knowledge about vessels and marine engineering allow us to have a optimal understanding of the environment in which a Ballast Water Management System is going to be installed. With our technical assessment of BWMS for your specific vessel, we are capable of showing potential equipment locations, installation paths, electrical cabinet locations. Our team of engineers can also make recommendations for what should be considered during installation.

We realize that equipment operations are essential and that problems and down-time have an effect on the owners bottom line. We believe that a single supplier for the entire design process, equipment supply and installation support is beneficial to the ship owner, both in terms of cost and efficiency. Communication across different disciplines is proven more efficient when exchanged within the same company.
