DECK MOUNTED

PERMANENT INSTALLATION

For vessels with limited free space available within the machinery space, a deck mounted, containerised ballast water management system represents an efficient, cost effective means of compliance.

The BWC Bute mobile ballast water management system can be installed as a semi-permanent retrofit onto the deck of the vessel, with simple pipe and electrical modifications required to connect it to the vessel’s systems.

EFFICIENT RETROFIT INSTALLATION

Minimal re-work of the vessel required

Retrofitting a deck mounted containerised ballast water management system provides owners and operators with an efficient means of complying with IMO, USCG and local legislation.

Preparatory works can be carried out whilst the vessel is trading, with the final retrofit carried out alongside at a time and location convenient to the vessels trading pattern.

VESSEL MODIFICATIONS

End to end retrofit installation

BWC can undertake all engineering and design work required for the permanent installation of the BWC Bute, including re-routing of ballast pipework to deck, electrical work and all required documentation.

BWC can also carry out the retrofit installation of the BWC Bute to the vessel.

DECK MOUNTED

SHARED MOBILE SYSTEM

For vessels operating on fixed routes, or vessels seldom trading internationally, the use of a shared mobile ballast water management system represents a significantly more cost efficient method of compliance than retrofitting each vessel in the fleet.

The BWC Bute mobile ballast water management system can be simply lifted on and off each vessel as required, to treat the ballast water prior to sailing or on arrival.

REDUCED COMPLIANCE COSTS

Share one system between multiple vessels or multiple projects

Compared to the retrofitting of every vessel in a fleet, the sharing of the BWC Bute offers vessel owners and operators with a significantly more cost effective method of compliance.


SIMPLE TO MOBILISE

Designed within a standard 20′ ISO Container

Designed within a standard 20′ ISO shipping container, and with integrated quick connections, the BWC Bute is quick and easy to mobilise to any vessel.

PORT BASED

SHARED MOBILE SYSTEM

For vessels on a fixed route between a number of ports, a port based mobile system offers a cost efficient means of compliance – particularly where a number of vessels trade in and out of the same ports.

The BWC Bute mobile ballast water management system can be installed on the quayside, offering vessels the ability to quickly and easily hook up to the system, to treat their ballast water prior to sailing or on arrival.

SIMPLE CONNECTION & OPERATION

Minimal re-work of the vessel required

The simplicity of the connections on the BWC Bute enable it to be quickly and easily connected and disconnected from each vessel calling at the port. The mobility of the product also enables it to be relocated within the port with relative ease.

ONE SYSTEM – MULTIPLE VESSELS

Share one BWC Bute system between as many vessels as required

Located within a port, and combined with other BWC products, the BWC Bute can offer vessel owners a very cost effective method of compliance – with ability to be shared between many vessels calling at the port.
