To help customers manage the challenge of keeping crews updated and trained in ballast water treatment compliance, Alfa Laval is launching a new computer training tool.

Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 CBT is a 24/7 computer training tool that serves as a complement to crew training on board or at training centres.

“PureBallast 3 CBT will save us man hours of training in the office, enhance safe operation and shorten the period of handovers on board,” said Paul Noriel Ilano, training and vessel IT manager for ship owner, Lauritzen Kosan Manila.

Training crucial

Both IMO and the USCG have made clear that training and education must cover ballast water management practices and the specifics of the ballast water treatment system.

In its annual report for 2017, the USCG noted that many of the growing number of compliance deficiencies can be traced back to crew knowledge and training.

PureBallast 3 CBT aims to make it easier to determine, improve and maintain crew competence levels with regard to ballast water treatment, so that ship owners and operators can feel confident in adhering to IMO and USCG legislation.

The training package begins with self-study about the problem of invasive species and ballast water management, as well as PureBallast 3 components and operation.

In addition, the 3D simulator gives crew members a practical familiarity with PureBallast 3 and its integration with the vessel’s piping and tanks.

The training concludes with a self-assessment, consisting of randomised questions that cover both ballast water management in general and PureBallast 3 specifically.
