The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) has granted alternate management system (AMS) acceptance of Evoqua Water Technologies SeaCURE ballast water management system for use in fresh, brackish and sea water.
Evoquas AMS acceptance for use in U.S. waters is exceptional in the ballast water market in that it can operate in all salinities. As such, the SeaCURE ballast water management system provides ship owners with a type approved and AMS accepted solution that can be deployed in any trade lane.
SeaCURE has previously been typed approved by the IMO and BSH, the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency of Germany (Bundesamt fr Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie). Evoqua also will apply for and undergo thorough testing required toward full USCG type approval. Currently, no ballast water treatment system has full USCG type approval.
SeaCURE is an efficient, reliable and low cost to operate ballast water management system based on proven, widely deployed Chloropac electrochlorination MGPS technology from Electrocatalytic, now an Evoqua brand.
