Ecochlor offers BWMS compliance guarantee

US system supplier Ecochlor has launched what it claims is the first guarantee of compliance for a ballast water management system (BWMS).

Guarantees have been a talking point in ballast water treatment, first as suppliers sought to assure owners that they would secure the necessary type approvals and later as ship operators wrestled with reliability concerns. The EcoCare guarantee goes further, insuring against up to US$1 million in financial penalties – including fines, port charges, delays and off-hire losses – if system fails to meet discharge standards.

John Morganti, vice president sales & marketing, Ecochlor, said: “The EcoCare guarantee is included with the purchase of an Ecochlor system at no additional cost. The guarantee expresses our dedication and commitment to providing the very highest standards in support of our clients’ ballasting operations.”

The guarantee also ensures regulatory compliance with IMO, US Coast Guard and individual US state standards as well as guaranteeing system efficacy in treating ballast water for invasive species contamination.

Ecochlor’s patented chlorine dioxide treatment technology is the only USCG type approved system that does not require treatment or neutralisation on discharge.
