UniBallast will help you find the right option for an individual vessel or for your whole fleet. A full quotation will set out all the costs right through the lifetime of your system, including operation and maintenance.
UniBallast provides complete retrofits with 3D scanning, basic and detailed engineering and Class approval. We can supervise on-board installation while in dock or alternatively carried out alongside our quay or in transit, saving docking time and cost.
Also we can offer our IACS-type approved Universal Ballast Water Port Connector (UBPC) as an affordable alternative for easy discharge of your ballast water to any treatment facility according to the latest USCG/IMO standards. For example a Mobile Ballast Water Treatment Container; a portable container with a built in ballast water treatment system to be placed alongside a vessel on a barge or quay, or directly on deck. Containers are standardized or custom made, compact, lightweight and with low power consumption.
UniBallast also offers services to have your vessel’s ballast water management plan ready and approved within a few days. Including stability calculations when the sequential method is chosen as ballast water exchange method.
Installing a complete ballast water treatment system on vessels isn’t always economical. That’s why our engineers developed the Universal Ballast Water Port Connector (UBPC). This innovation in ballast water treatment means you can transfer your ballast water to a mobile facility for treatment practically anywhere in the world.
With the UBPC, you can comply fully with the Ballast Water Management Convention – without the expense of fitting an on-board treatment system.
Whatever your ballast pump capacity, UBPC has a flow rate to match.
You can have the entire UBPC system, including mobile container facilities worldwide, for a fraction of the cost of installing or retrofitting a ballast water treatment system on board.
