BALPURE BWTS Earns BV Type Approval

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

The Type-Approved BALPURE ballast water treatment system from Severn Trent De Nora has received type approval from classification society Bureau Veritas (BV) for its full range of standard ballast water treatment systems that can treat ballast water flow rates of up to 5,000 m3/h.  Standard systems can be supplied as multiple sets to treat higher flow rates. 
The type approval was granted by BV following stringent review of the BALPURE system per BV rules and guidelines along with the guidelines contained in the IMO Resolution MEPC.174(58).  This involved a thorough review of land-based and shipboard testing results, corrosion testing results as well as hydrogen gas dispersion risk analysis by third party Naval Architect / Marine Engineering firm, Glosten Associates. 
Severn Trent De Nora is in the process of obtaining type approval from other classification societies including ABS, DNV, GL and LR.  With the US Coast Guard (USCG) Final Rule published on 23 March 2012, Severn Trent De Nora has also been actively pursuing Alternate Management System status with the USCG, with an objective to be one of the first ballast water management systems with the UCSG Type Approval.
Jim McGillivray, BALPURE general manager for Severn Trent De Nora said, “With these approvals coming into place, shipowners can be assured that the BALPURE system is a robust and reliable solution that can meet stringent ballast water convention requirements.  As one of the most widely tested solutions, the BALPURE system utilizes electrolytic disinfection technology, which has been used by Severn Trent De Nora for more than 35 years to control microorganisms in industrial and municipal waters. The technology has a strong history in the marine and offshore markets and is now proven to be a highly effective solution to the threat of aquatic invasive species.”
Severn Trent De Nora will be showcasing the BALPURE system at Posidonia (stand 3.325), to be held from 4 – 8 June 2012 at the Metropolitan Expo Centre, Athens, Greece.
