DESMI Ocean Guard’s CompactClean Ballast Water Management System has received IMO Type Approval according to the revised IMO BWMS code.

This approval means that the CompactClean BWMS becomes one of only two systems worldwide approved for installation on vessels also after 28 October 2020.

“We are very happy to achieve this major milestone in the CompactClean approval process. The system has performed very well throughout the more than 18 months’ testing period and we are very satisfied with the proven performance and the reliability of the system,” said Rasmus Folsø, CEO of DESMI Ocean Guard A/S.

Robust testing

IMO type approval was issued by Lloyd’s Register on behalf of the Danish Environmental Agency and the Danish Maritime Authority.

The approval is the first step in the planned approval process for the CompactClean BWMS, which will now continue with the issuance of a Lloyd’s Register Type Approval certificate and the submission of a full application for US Coast Guard (USCG) Type Approval within a couple of weeks.

Furthermore, the CompactClean BWMS is undergoing approval according to ATEX and IECEx requirements for installation in hazardous zones on oil and chemical tankers and this approval is expected before the end of 2018.

The CompactClean system comes in 14 different flowrate sizes, with the smallest having a maximum flowrate of 35 m3/h and the largest having a maximum flowrate of 3000 m3/h.
