Techcross, the South Korea-based ballast water management system supplier, has announced that a BWMS has been successfully retrofitted  in the engine room of a tanker. Techcross patented the ‘Engine Room Solution’ installation method for BWMS systems in 2016, but the installation represents the first reference for a retrofit installation.
