The UV-based water treatment specialist BIO-UV Group will showcase its fully type-approved BIO-SEA ballast water treatment system at Nor-Shipping on stand D06-53. Recently, BIO-UV Group completed the testing of an enhanced BIO-SEA ballast water treatment system designed to reduce further the time in which treated water has to be held onboard prior to discharge overboard. Testing verified the technical improvements to the BIO SEA ballast water treatment system by cutting minimum holding time down to zero hours for fresh water, 20 hours for brackish water, 24 hours for marine water.
To date, about 150 vessels have been installed with the BIO-SEA system. In addition to CMA CGM other shipowners that favour the company’s technology include Louis Dreyfus Armateurs, Damen Green, MSC Cruises, Royal Caribbean Cruise International and CGGVeritas, amongst others.
