The US Coast Guard’s (USCG) Ballast Water Management (BWM) systems regulations will begin to be enforced in 2015, and with the IMO BWM Treaty expected to be ratified early in 2015, environmental retrofits are now unavoidable. With both of these sets of parallel standards about to be imminently enforced — all existing ships will need to be retrofitted with a compliant certified BWM system within 5 years’ time of enforcement, while all new ship builds moving forward will need to have standards compliant BWM systems. Only an estimated 2,000 of the 50,000 ships currently in service internationally have functional BWM systems currently installed (of which only an estimated 200 are retrofits), none of which meet the USCG final rule standard. The estimated cost of BWM systems installations will range from $200K — $5M per ship, costing up to $40 billion dollars in BWM retrofits alone.

How will the type-approval processes intersect with the upcoming compliance deadlines? What BWM system is optimum, and how do ship owners ensure they retro-fit their ships in a way that achieves the most cost-effective compliance while maximizing efficiencies? Only those with the answers to these questions will be able to successfully navigate this tumultuous period in the shipping industry’s history, and profit.
