Data generated by a 3D laser scan is used to model the chosen or shortlisted systems into the existing space.
Ballast Water Treatment

8th of September 2017 last date.
Following Finland's accession of the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments (BWM Convention), IMO has confirmed that the Convention will enter into force on 8th of September 2017.
The aim of the BWM Convention is to engage States to minimise and ultimately eliminate the transfer of harmful aquatic organisms and pathogens through the control and management of sea ballast water and sediments.
The BWM Convention applies to all ships except:
- ships not designed or constructed to carry ballast water
- ships operating exclusively in waters under the jurisdiction of a Party, unless the party determines that the
discharge of ballast water from such ships would impair or damage their environment
- warships, naval auxiliary or other ships owned or operated by a Party
- ships with permanent ballast water not subject to discharge.
All vessels must be installed with a Ballast Water Management System for the treatment of ballast water before discharged is made. As per the IMO Resolution A.1088(28) a schedule has been implemented for the installation of BWM treatment technology. This states that existing ships must be installed with a BWM treatment technology at the “first IOPP renewal survey after the entry into force of the Convention”. Therefore existing ships must be retrofitted with a BWM treatment technology at the first IOPP renewal survey after 8th of September 2017. For ships constructed after the entry into force date, will have to be compliant on delivery.
Ship-owners / Managers are recommended to take action for the implementation of the Convention’s requirements.

Ship Owners / Managers must prepare and submit to Engineering Department the BWM Plan as soon as possible, to avoid any problems or delays due to the submission of a great number of plans in the very close period to the entry into force of the Convention.

WESKROG  , through our network and own technical department, have all the capacity to quickly analyze and prepare the necessary documentation and drawings for class approval and shipyard.
