Feasibility study with Pacific Carriers
The fundamental concept of BOS Natural Ballast came from the assumption that as 70% of the world surface is water, there must be plenty of compliant water out there. To confirm this BOS and Pacific Carriers deployed two ships to collect samples of the ballast water taken from the ports and oceans around the world. The ballast water was analysed and the results confirmed that there is more compliant water that meets the D2-standard than non-compliant.
BOS is dedicated to protecting the aquatic ecosystem from the invasive species while saving time, cost and space for ship operators by providing Ballast Management System that meets the ballast water discharge standard without aggressive treatment.
No aggressive treatment
The mandatory requirement is to ensure that the ballast water meets the ballast water discharge standard which is the D2 standard by USCG and revised G8 by IMO.
One size fits all
BOS Natural Ballast saves cost, time and space. It requires less than 10kW power. It has the smallest footprint and is easy to retrofit without the need for the ship to stop operation.
BOS Natural Ballast measures and records all ballast water management parameters continuously. The system verifies that the ballast water management system meets the ballast water discharge standard at all times.
We will be exhibiting at Nor-Shipping 2019 and excited to be part of the hall A1 which is devoted to Blue Economy, showcasing ‘tomorrow’s business solutions today’.
“We are moving forward from solutions with the potential to disrupt the industry to embrace those that create growth through sustainable practices, while improving livelihoods and safeguarding ocean ecosystems. From an environmental perspective this is imperative, but from a commercial standpoint it also makes perfect sense – our industry needs a healthy ocean to operate, while there’s a huge opportunity for innovative technology, collaborations and working models to unlock new revenue streams.” – Nor-Shipping Director Per Martin Tanggaard
