RWO reports that its CleanBallast ballast water treatment system has been updated to a second-generation model, designed to pass multiple type-approval requirements.
German marine equipment designer and supplier RWO, which was acquired by Erma First in 2021, has announced that the second generation of its CleanBallast ballast water treatment system is currently under review by the Norwegian and US Maritime Authorities in respect to IMO’s BWMS Code and USCG (46 CFR 162.060) type-approval.
The company expects full approval will be granted in Q3 2021.
RWO’s head of sales, Andreas Rosebrock, said: “With the second generation of the CleanBallast system we broaden the support to our existing customer base. Beside continuous after-sales support for the first-generation system, we can now offer an attractive upgrade package to fulfil both IMO and USCG standards.”
RWO was among the first marine equipment manufacturers to develop approved ballast water treatment technology.
The first installation, dating back to 2008, remains operational to date and keeps vessels in full compliance.
The CleanBallast ballast water treatment systems have flow capacities ranging from 350 to 3,000 m³ / hour.
