MMC Green Technology was established in 2010 as a spin off in the MMC group of companies.

The mission was to establish a company focusing on environmental protective solutions for the maritime industry, the upcoming BWM convention and MMCs experience from water treatment systems was the main reason for the timing.

MMC Green Technology consists of employees with very long experience from several other companies in the Norwegian Maritime Cluster. By knowledge about the high demands in maritime operations we aim to give our customers the best service at all time.


MMC BWMS make use of the latest UV-technology commercially available today, based on medium pressure UV-radiation. This is the most efficient UV-technology for Ballast Water Treatment with a UV-radiation wave length of 200-400 nm.

UV- light has proved to be a very “clean” alternative to active substances (chemical agents such as chlorine, chlorine dioxide or ozone). Unlike these methods, UV does not produce any disinfection-by-products (DBPs).

The UV-sensor is placed in between the lamps, “looking 360 degrees” and senses all lamps simultaneously. The sensor will detect if a lamp needs to be replaced. Lamps and sensor are covered by the same quart sleeves, and is cleaned by a state of the art wiping mechanism. 4 power steps, controlled according to UV- light transmission. UV-lamp life time of more than 1000 hour (calculated to approx. 5-years operation on maximum power).
