Reliability from the start
Many vessels have chosen not to use their ballast water treatment systems until required to do so by international law. Now that the IMO Ballast Water Management (BWM) Convention has been ratified, that requirement will begin with the first vessel renewal survey after September 2017.
If your PureBallast system has been inactive for 12 months or more, it may no longer perform as expected. In the worst case, your system may have developed faults that can lead to damage at start-up. Recommissioning is recommended to prevent costly incidents and ensure performance according to type approval.
Scope determined by status
Recommissioning begins with a status check of your PureBallast system. This determines the scope and timing of the recommissioning work, so that we can prepare in advance and have any necessary parts on hand.
Based on the results of the status check, we perform any needed corrections, adjustments, updates or optimizing software upgrades. Afterwards, even if no faults were found, we perform a full system test to verify your system’s performance. In addition, we provide operator training while on board to ensure that your crew is ready to use the system.
