BEHIND THE NAME…
SEAFORTH ISLAND – SCOTLAND, UK
Did you know..?

Seaforth island is also known as “Mulag”

The world’s first mobile ballast water management system designed specifically for the barge and logistics industry.

COST EFFECTIVE

SHARE ONE SYSTEM ACROSS FLEET

The BWC Seaforth has been designed for mobility, allowing one system to be shared between a number of vessels or operations.

By sharing one system across a number of vessels or operations, owners and operators are presented with a significantly more cost effective method of compliance compared to retrofitting each vessel individually.

THE BWC APPROACH

TREAT SEA-GOING BALLAST ONLY

With most barge operational ballasting conducted within the same location, it is, in fact, only the sea-going ballast that requires treatment.

The BWC Seaforth is designed around the treatment of the sea-going ballast only – allowing existing operations to remain largely unchanged, and removing the requirement to retrofit high capacity ballast water management systems onboard.

DEVELOPED IN HOUSE

FOR BARGE APPLICATIONS

Developed within Malin Group, with over 30 years experience in heavy lift transportation, the BWC Seaforth is a mobile ballast water management system tailored specifically to the logistics and barge transportation industries.

The BWC Seaforth system is designed to seamlessly complement existing barge ballasting operations – ensuring barge equipment and load-out/in operations remain largely unchanged.

A RANGE OF KEY FEATURES

Our range of highly innovative mobile compliance products offer our clients a cost efficient alternative to retrofitting their vessels with ballast water management systems.

DESIGNED FOR TRUE MOBILITY

Why retrofit every vessel in your fleet when you can share one BWC?

The BWC Seaforth has been designed from the bottom up with mobility in mind, to facilitate the sharing of one system between a number of vessels or a number of operations. Integrated within a 20′ ISO shipping container, with quick connect electrical and hose connections make the product infinitely mobile.

BALLAST / DE-BALLAST MULTIPLE TANKS

Coming from a heavy lift contractor and naval architecture background, we fully understand the need to ballast / de-ballast multiple tanks at once.

The BWC Seaforth includes integrated automatic flow balancing technology to enable controlled ballasting or de-ballasting of multiple tanks, using multiple pumps.
