Green Ship of the Future (GSF) and partners initiate new retrofit project A large share of the existing global fleet is not up for renewal anytime soon, yet their environmental impact must be accounted for. Future compliance and the general energy efficiency of those vessels, will depend on the ship owners’ retrofit choices. With their […]
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.
Pacific Carriers begins testing BOS Natural Ballast on two of its vessels.
The new system BOS Natural Ballast set to launch at the SMM trade fair in Hamburg has been engineered to ensure that ballast water discharge standards are met at all times during the uptake and discharge. Generally, most ballast water systems involve methods of filtering off bacteria and pathogen cells larger than 50 microns in […]
