An American ballast water treatment system manufacturer has submitted an application to the US Coast Guard to obtain type approval for its BWTS.

Envirocleanse says that its inTank BWTS is the only applicant to date which treats ballast water during the voyage meaning no disruption to cargo operations with all in-port, ballasting and deballasting completed as normal.

“The inTank BWTS is an important and unique addition to the current offerings in the marketplace,” said Matt Hughes, EVP of sales and marketing, Envirocleanse.

“inTank has a compact and flexible profile that does not impact cargo operations, ballast loading or discharge operations. In short, one of the primary concerns of today’s ship operators – BWTS operational delays and related demurrage – has effectively been eliminated.”

Added benefits

Another featured benefit of the inTank BWTS is that no filter is required.

The inTank BWTS uses a unique dispersion system developed by marine consultancy Glosten, Inc and patented by the US Geological Survey for mixing the active substance (sodium hypochlorite) in the ballast tanks.

The Envirocleanse inTank BWTS can use either electrically generated hypochlorite or bulk chemical as the means to provide disinfectant.

Having these options allows the user flexibility to choose the system which best fits their vessel profile. This flexibility allows a vessel with longer voyages, 72 hours or more, to exchange time for smaller equipment size.

The Bulk Doser can maintain the option to complete short duration voyages when needed.

Envirocleanse LLC is a division of Charter Brokerage LLC, a Berkshire Hathaway company.
