Infocast's Ballast Water Management Summit
Strategize cost-effective, practical solutions for BWM system compliance now and going forward
With enforcement of the US Coast Guard’s (USCG) Ballast Water Management (BWM) regulations underway and the IMO BWM enforcement on the near horizon, environmental retrofits for ships are now unavoidable. Only a small fraction of the 50,000 ships currently in service internationally have functional BWM systems currently installed, none of which meet the USCG standard. The estimated cost of BWM systems installations will range from $200K – $5M per ship, costing up to $40 billion in BWM retrofits alone.
It’s a huge headache for shipowners but presents opportunities for engineers, consultants, equipment providers, the testing industry, and others involved in this complex industry. Everyone across the industry is trying to figure out the answers to key questions, including: How will 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? How can certification organizations, suppliers and retrofitters ensure that BWM systems meet the requirements for compliance set by both regulatory bodies? Only those with the answers to these questions will be able to achieve compliance and profit.
Infocast’s 4th Ballast Water Management Summit, March 7-8, 2017 in Long Beach, CA will again include key regulators, ship owners & operators, shipbuilders and engineers, water treatment specialists, marine equipment suppliers, ports, shipping/maritime associations and others as they exchange information and strategize cost-effective, practical solutions for BWM system compliance now and going forward.
Plus, attend Ballast Water Treatment Technology Pre-Summit Briefing, March 6, 2017, to get a comprehensive overview of current technologies, type approval, testing and retrofits; and new advancements and innovations in ballast water treatment and monitoring.
