PML Applications was contracted by Carnival UK and Alfa Laval to conduct an independent shipboard test of the Alfa Laval Pureballast 2.0 fitted to a Carnival UK vessel.
Both parties wanted to be sure that the retro-fitted system was able to meet the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) D-2 discharge standard for ballast water under normal operating conditions. We were asked to attend the ship in Southampton during one of her short routine port visits and sample the ballast water during discharge. Ballast water was sampled over a full discharge of two ballast tanks and analysed for the three IMO D-2 discharge standard categories. All were well within the IMO D-2 regulation standards.
