In preparation for the anticipated ballast water treatment retrofit boom, Alfa Laval training for engineering partners is securing skills and capacity for the retrofit of ballast water treatment systems

 
The retrofit market for ballast water treatment systems is poised to boom in the coming years, says Alfa Laval, who is actively training its network of engineering partners for its PureBallast system in order to ensure that requisite design and installation skills are in place to meet demand.
 
When the retrofit market for ballast water treatment systems gains speed, the ability of suppliers to deliver treatment systems will only be one part of satisfying it. Specific knowledge and skills will also have to be in place among design and installation partners. For this reason, Alfa Laval has developed a comprehensive training program for engineering companies preparing to work with PureBallast.
 
“Alfa Laval is bolstering resources to meet the retrofit boom,” says Stephen Westerling Greer, Global Business Manager for PureBallast. “Alfa Laval will be ready, not only with the technical solutions, but also with an internal network of well-trained engineers and a strong external network of engineering partners.”
 
Alfa Laval’s multi-day training courses cover all technical aspects affecting PureBallast design and installation. But they also deal with cooperation, workflow and documentation handling, so as to ensure a smooth process along with a technically correct result.
 
“Engineering companies are keen to prepare for what’s coming, and they want access to the deep insights Alfa Laval has gained in many years of working with retrofit solutions in ballast water treatment,” says Westerling Greer, who notes that the courses in February and March alone involve 40 participants from 14 companies, representing 11 countries worldwide. He adds, “The participants are as focused on building a strong working relationship with Alfa Laval as we are on securing our global retrofit capacity. For all of us, this is a key investment in the future and in the peace of mind of our customers in ballast water treatment.”
