Ballast Treatment System Deck Module partners Marine Systems Inc., Glosten, and Alfa Laval recently delivered a pair of first-of-their-kind modular ballast water treatment units specially designed for tank barge and ship operations.
Each Ballast Module, packing a treatment capacity of 1,000 m3/hr within a twenty-foot shipping container footprint, is ABS and US Coast Guard approved for hazardous area installations. The efficient module reduces the technical demands on busy shipyards during traditionally jam-packed shipyard periods. Rather than juggle the independent components and vendors required for a traditional ballast water treatment system installation, shipyards can instead focus on fabricating a few well defined interfaces and foundation system. Each purchased module comes pre-approved by USCG and ABS, is fully tested prior to shipment, and includes integration support from MSI and Glosten engineers.
The demands of the vessel operator drove this design. Doing this as a manufactured product ensures that we get it right, every time.”
