gmec: Panel I - Preparing for Ballast Water Treatment

One year after the IMO’s Ballast Water Management Convention came into force, this session will provide an overview of installed applications and examine which technology is really fulfilling the goals. As well as selecting the system itself, there are numerous technical obstacles to be overcome in retrofitting the equipment to existing vessels. We present practical case studies on the challenges associated with selecting an approved system and operating it, from the perspectives of a regulator, supplier and owner association.
