Selecting a certified ballast water treatment system is the beginning of the journey for owners and operators… Certification and operational compliance are two very different things… And with the compliance deadline upon us, shipowners and operators are understandably concerned about enforcement and the potential repercussions if regulatory requirements are not met. This speaks of a need for greater clarity around:
- System selection
- Testing regimes – from sampling kits to Port State Control
- International standards – interpretation, policing, enforcement and sanctions
- Hidden costs.
De Nora in partnership with Riviera Maritime Media has convened an expert panel drawn from the owner/operator community and wider industry to deliver insights on the technical, operational and regulatory issues that are quite literally keeping owners and operators awake at night.
The discussion will be open and honest and geared toward practical measures that can both anticipate and mitigate the risks that arise when it comes to Ballast Water Treatment Technology beyond certification.

About De Nora
De Nora is an Italian multinational leader in sustainable technologies that offers energy saving products and water treatment solutions. Its BALPURE® BWMS is favoured shipowners and managers thanks to its unique slip stream treatment approach that allows for operation in all salinity regimes and low-water temperature environments. The system can be remotely mounted away from the ballast lines and split into small sub-assemblies to minimise other equipment relocation and additional engineering/ship re-designs.
