PLEASE JOIN US FOR A FREE SEMINAR ON COMMISSIONING TESTING OF BALLAST WATER MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Ballast Water Management Systems: Addressing the Commissioning Dilemma
Industry estimates suggest that >3,000 ballast water management systems (BWMS) have been installed to date. Until now, “commissioning” of BWMS has largely been in the form of functional tests (to confirm hydraulic and electrical integrity) and operational checks (for example, to test alarms), with no direct evaluation of biological performance. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has recently provided guidance on a commissioning routine to include biological evaluations in line with what may be encountered during Port State Control inspections in the future.
To date, SGS has conducted >2,000 sampling events of treated ballast water on >500 unique vessels. These experiences will be discussed. Additionally, the state of play in ballast water commissioning will be reviewed along with recommendations for robust sampling and analysis of treated water samples, with the aim of providing the maximal confidence to the ship owner that the resources invested will lead to compliant operations.
