Ballast water testing
Ballast water increases the depth, stability and strength of a ship. Because this water is taken in from ports, rivers and the open sea, it contains numerous organisms, and discharging it into an ecosystem other than the one from which it was taken can cause damage to people and nature. In many flag states, ships are required to have an approved ballast water treatment system in accordance with the D2 standard set by the IMO. The system shall ensure that only small quantities of viable organisms remain in the water after treatment in order to minimise the negative impact on the marine environment. The D2 standard will become mandatory for all shipping in 2024.
Normec MTS is happy to take the testing of the treated ballast water off your hands.
