MariFlex/Damen Mobile Ballast Water Treatment

MariFlex/Damen Mobile Ballast Water Treatment


Most ship owners are expected to comply with new ballast water regulations by installing onboard Ballast Water Treatment Systems. MariFlex has also considered alternatives for those owners that may not want to retrofit a treatment system, perhaps because their ships operate on non-exempted fixed routes or their ships are so old as to make any investment in such a system prohibitively expensive. Alternatives are also required for ports that need to provide backup in the case of emergencies when ships’ onboard treatment systems fail.

For these reasons, Damen has developed a unique mobile discharge technology – InvaSave – which enables port based treatment of ballast water.
With InvaSave technology, ballast water only needs treating at the point of discharge, in contrast to most fixed onboard installations that also need to
treat at intake.
