Suspended sediments, turbidity, and tidal extremes of salinity are just some of the factors that can affect the efficacy and the correct choice of Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS).
There are over 8,000 ports worldwide, most of which exhibit a wide range of environmental conditions which may vary significantly due to factors such as depth and time. It is essential that ship operators understand their environment so they can manage their ballasting operations effectively.
By reviewing available data, applying expert knowledge and undertaking surveys or research of local environmental conditions anywhere in the world, the Centre can deliver detailed, bespoke reports to meet your requirements. The Centre has an exceptional understanding of the marine environment combined with an in-depth knowledge of BWTS. It provides detailed information to make informed decisions on the BWTS for your vessel(s) and to improve the operational effectiveness of your ballast water management plan.
