Ballast water treatment involves more than installing a system and switching it on. The regulations demand not only discharge performance, but also system inspections, function checks, calibrations and crew training to ensure it. With the PureBallast Compliance Service Package, our experts take responsibility for the health of your Alfa Laval PureBallast system – taking work and worry off your shoulders.
The components of the PureBallast Compliance Service Package work together to bring you peace of mind. For one minimal fee, you get everything you need to be certain of compliance – plus an extension of your system’s warranty period.
The package includes the following:
PureBallast 3 is designed for ease of use, which means crews can quickly learn how to operate and maintain the ballast water treatment system. However, ballast water treatment is still a relatively new application.
Dedicated training can help ensure compliant PureBallast 3 operation with the lowest cost – and contribute to maximizing system lifetime. By investing in PureBallast 3 training, you give crews competence in the application and the knowledge to operate your PureBallast system in the best possible way. Our trainings are available on board your vessel, at our training facilities around the world and digitally.
British Antarctic Survey (BAS) operates in some of the world’s harshest and most remote environments. When installing Alfa Laval systems on its new research vessel, the organization sent crew members for in-depth training at Alfa Laval training centres.
Using and maintaining PureBallast 3 should be easy for crews. That’s why Alfa Laval provides smart how-to videos that complement the written instructions in the system manual. In the training room, in the engine room and elsewhere, this series of around 30 short videos helps engineers and crews to understand and implement key steps in PureBallast 3 operation and maintenance.
Alfa Laval is well prepared for the technical and logistical challenges of retrofitting a vessel for ballast water treatment.
On most vessels there is no existing space or consideration for ballast water treatment. The compactness and flexibility of PureBallast 3 Compact Flex will simplify a retrofit, but Alfa Laval’s hands-on knowledge and proven working procedures are even more important.
Alfa Laval has worked with retrofit installations for a decade. Our capabilities, accumulated knowledge and flexible project management make us the most qualified supplier for your retrofit needs. We customize each project to meet your requirements, even offering budgeting assistance and financing options.
Retrofits involve partnerships, often at a global level. We can work with your engineering department and chosen yard, or we can secure competencies from our own network for engineering support, 3D laser scanning, class approval and more.
Likewise, we can meet your existing docking schedule or arrange for installation during your voyage. As a global organization with strong logistics, we can even move with your project if your trading routes change prior to docking. Our presence and capabilities worldwide ensure a smooth and successful project, even when major changes occur.
PureBallast 3 is a future-proof solution. Vessels with earlier PureBallast 3 systems that were only certified for IMO-regulated waters can easily upgrade to USCG type approval, allowing them to deballast in United States waters if their operating patterns change. This is important when it comes to a vessel’s resale value, as USCG type approval will be vital to any buyer who wants to operate in this key market.
Alfa Laval is not only the most experienced supplier of ballast water treatment systems, but also a true marine supplier with a global service network and a century-long track record. Our service team is available 24/7 and wherever you sail – in key marine harbours, by phone, online or on board.
Alfa Laval service experts help you get the most from your equipment. Dedicated to keeping you competitive, they work to maximize your uptime, minimize your costs and secure the best return on your equipment investment.
Besides securing parts and performing maintenance, our service engineers can instruct your crews, troubleshoot complex issues or evaluate your equipment and make expert recommendations. By taking advantage of their skills and support, you can rely on PureBallast for cost-effective compliance throughout your vessel’s lifetime.
Our Alfa Laval 360° Service Portfolio contains services to support and optimize your equipment throughout its lifetime. In addition to the PureBallast Compliance Service Package and PureBallast 3 training, if offers services such as installation supervision, commissioning and recommissioning for systems being started up after a long period of inactivity.
