OceanSaver’s Mark II BWTS Approved by USCG
OceanSaver has achieved a certification double, with the news that its Mark II Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) system has achieved US Coast Guard (USCG) approval, while the company itself has achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification.
The awards, building on the system’s existing IMO acceptance and DNV Type Approval, consolidate the company’s claim that it now offers “the ultimate in BWT compliance” to its global customer base.
Based in Drammen, Norway, OceanSaver is an established leader in providing efficient and reliable BWT systems for medium and large vessels, such as VLCCs, LNG Carriers, and a variety of tankers and bulk carriers, amongst others.
The USCG’s Alternate Management System (AMS) approval means that vessels fitted with OceanSaver systems – combining effective and reliable filtration with high-performance electrodialytic disinfectant treatment – are free to discharge ballast water in US ports. Newbuilds constructed after December 2013 must have USCG compliant systems to perform this task. xxx
In addition to the recognition from the USCG, OceanSaver has also successfully completed ISO 9001:2008 certification by Lloyds Register. This standard relates to the efficacy of a company’s quality management system and its impact on the firm’s ability to meet both customer and statutory and regulatory requirements, alongside enhancing customer satisfaction.
