The number of customers choosing PureBallast 3 for ballast water treatment on their container vessels continues to grow.
Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has signed a comprehensive fleet agreement, making PureBallast 3 the default for all MSC container vessels. With over 500 vessels to manage worldwide, the company was attracted by the simplicity and reliability of the PureBallast 3 solution – but finds added strength in Alfa Laval’s training, service capabilities and minimization of USCG holding time.
A wide range of system advantages and dedicated technical solutions make PureBallast 3 the ideal choice for ballast water treatment on container vessels.
Existing container vessels need to be retrofitted with ballast water treatment systems by the time of their next renewal survey. However, they seldom have space allotted for it in their design. PureBallast 3 Compact Flex handles most flows and is flexibly built with loose components, making it the ideal system for saving space and resolving container vessel retrofit challenges.
If you have a small container vessel, there’s no reason to make big work of installing a ballast water treatment system. PureBallast 3 Compact is a convenient, skid-mounted solution that’s specially designed for small feeders and other vessels with flow needs of 32–300 m3/h. Delivered as a skid-mounted module, it minimizes both footprint and pipework.
Although ultra-large container vessels (ULVCs) are rare, their ballast water flows can rival those of bulkers and tankers. PureBallast 3 has the flexibility to meet even ULVC needs with a small footprint and low power consumption, thanks in part to a reactor family that includes 1000 m3/h and 1500 m3/h reactor sizes.
Many feeders operate in coastwise service in USCG-regulated waters. If you have a relatively short time between United States ports, long ballast water holding times aren’t an option. PureBallast 3 now has a minimized holding time of just 2.5 hours – which is only needed when crossing between Captain of the Port Zones.
Installing a ballast water treatment system is only the first step in staying compliant. The regulations demand a whole range of annual service actions. Even so, one package is all that you need. With the PureBallast Compliance Service Package, our experts take responsibility for your PureBallast system’s health.
