PROTECTING NATURE with NATURAL BALLAST

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.

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.

Continuous compliance

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


As said in Twitter

"Maritime innovation has always made use of natural phenomena like buoyancy. There must be a better way for Ballast Water Management to use naturally compliant water"
