DESMI Ocean Guard has launched a new Ballast Water Management System which it says sets new standards for small footprint BWMS.

The BWMS developer said that CompactClean boasts both reliable performance and certainty of meeting both IMO and US discharge standards.

“The system is free of any troubling operational limitations and can treat water independent of its salinity (fresh, brackish, and marine water) and temperature and can operate at full flow in the vast majority of ports around the world,” said Rasmus Folsø, CEO of DESMI Ocean Guard.

“For DESMI it has been important to provide the shipping industry with a solution that works globally without any special interference of the crew and which can be installed very easily without relocating other equipment.”

The CompactClean system consists of an automatic backflushing filter, a UV unit, valves, sensors and controls. Its UV unit has a unique and patent pending shape which is the result of hundreds of state of the art numerical simulations.

This shape ensures optimum dosage of the UV to all organisms in the water and the result is a system that can meet even the very strict USCG type approval requirements.

Another unique feature of the system is its ability to generate automatic PDF reports that document all treatment, in a format that is suitable for submission to local port state authorities and others.

The CompactClean BWMS is currently undergoing type approval testing according to both IMO and USCG requirements, under the surveillance of Lloyd’s Register. It is expected that type approval certificates will be issued around May 2018.
