BIO-UV informs it has started the process of USCG Type Approval for its BIO-SEA BBWTS. Land-based and shipboard tests are currently underway.

The original design has been retained, due to its efficient and relevant technology, and some technical improvements have been made.

BIO-SEA is already IMO approved since 2013 and AMS accepted since 2014.

The entire USCG certification is performed by the independent Lab DNV and the certified DHI laboratory. Land-based tests are held in Denmark at the DHI test facilities.

For the shipboard tests, BIO-UV has equipped a containership (TEU capacity 8465) from container shipping company worldwide CMA-CGM with a BIO-SEA B 1050 system.

The BIO-SEA B BWTS will be USCG type approved for all water qualities (marine, brackish and fresh), at low UV transmittance.

BIO-UV has been cooperating closely with the CMA CGM Group for many years to provide modular, reliable, innovative systems, made with high marine quality components and corresponding to the requirements of the French shipowner.
