As one of the first ballast water treatment systems, RWO’s CleanBallast has received the AMS approval .

 

This certificate is awarded by the United States Coast Guard (USCG) and is considered to be the crucial supporting requirement for future purchasing decisions of shipowners and yards.

 


The AMS approval is just the latest success in a series of achievements RWO accomplished in the past months. In the course of 2012 many important owners demonstrated their confidence in the CleanBallast technology and selected the system for newbuilds, as well as for retrofits. In September the Bremen-based manufacturer also received Product Design Assessment (PDA) Certificate from Germanischer Lloyd for its ballast water treatment system. To date the CleanBallast technology has already been selected by customers from Belgium, China, Canada, Cyprus, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and the Netherlands for a variety of vessels including container, bulker, heavy lift, RoCon, multi-purpose and tankers.
