Do You Know the TRUE COST of IMO & USCG Compliance?
The economic impact of the spread of invasive aquatic species has been studied for years, along with the costs of installing disinfection equipment on ships in an effort to prevent their spread. However, little economic research has been done regarding the relative cost of different types of treatment systems for vessel operators.
Filtersafe undertook research to analyze key areas of shipboard operations that can be impacted by the performance of a ballast water management system (BWMS) and the economic implications of each impact on shipowners.
This white paper also investigates the importance of understanding both the regulatory and technical aspects of specifying a BWMS with a suitable filter and outlines the risks of non-compliance and the risks associated with a lack of proper filtration.
We invite you to download the white paper, which comes with a checklist of questions ship owners and operators should ask their BWMS supplier before deciding on the right filter and system for their ships.
