BALLAST WATER TREATMENT - RETROFIT SERVICE

12 Nov 2013
Ahead of the IMO, the United States has already passed Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) regulations. From December 2013 a BWT installation will be compulsory for all newbuild vessels. Existing vessels need to retrofit one at their first drydocking after January 1, 2014. These new regulations will entail a lot of effort, if not concern.
