Services related to Ballast Water Management
Our BWM services assist our clients in complying with current regulations. We have been working on ballast water technologies and related technologies for decades, and have vast competence in ballast water management requirements as well as treatment technologies.
Ship owners and operators who need to start the planning and decision-making process will benefit from our decision-making tool, safety assessments, and feasibility studies. Our advisory services help you avoid costly mistakes and choose ballast water management systems (BWMS) which are optimized to your needs.
For customers who have already chosen their BWMS, we offer approval of BWMS installations and retrofits, as well as approval of BWM Plans.
We also offer approval of test facilities engaged in environmental, land-based and shipboard testing of BWMS for type approval.
DNV GL has experience with BWM from all sides of the table. We have deep insight into type approval, plan approval, feasibility and safety of BWMS, and we use this insight to make it as easy as possible for you to comply with the BWM Convention.
