Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS

Hyde Marine, Inc., a ballast water treatment technology company, will showcase its Hyde GUARDIAN Gold HG250G Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) at the upcoming Shipbuilding, Machinery, & Marine Technology (SMM) International Trade Fair, September 9-12, 2014, in Hamburg, Germany.

The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS recently received Alternate Management System (AMS) Approval from the United States Coast Guard (USCG), which is a critical step to achieving full USCG Type Approval. The AMS designation is an interim measure that allows the BWTS to be used on vessels for five years after the vessel is required to comply with the USCG Ballast Water Discharge Standards.

Most vessels operating in U.S. waters with ballast capacities between 1,500 m³/hr and 5,000 m³/hr will be required to meet USCG Ballast Water Discharge Standards by the time of their first major drydocking after January 1, 2014.

Providing flow rates up to 250 m3/hr and designed to be skid mounted, the HG250G BWTS can be easily installed in existing ships and is suited for crowded machinery spaces, as well as in new ship construction. The HG250G BWTS is designed for retrofits as it delivers one of the smallest, compact footprints required by a growing number of ship owners and operators.

According to Hyde Marine , the BWTS delivers the robust construction and technological specifications anticipated to meet future BWT regulations, which should require filtration to treat ships' ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port.

In addition to the HG250G BWTS display at SMM, Hyde Marine will also demonstrate a new onboard ballast water test system, B-box, which was recently made available from the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ).  B-box is designed to help companies conduct accurate analysis regarding the concentrations of chemicals or organisms present in ballast water to help ensure ship owner compliance with pending ballast water testing regulations.

In the future, ship owners and operators will need to comply with the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments (BWMC), which the IMO adopted in 2004. The BWMC requires ships to conduct a ballast water exchange or to meet concentration-based ballast water discharge standards at ports with ballast tanks 99.99% free of living organisms and pathogens.
