UniBallast has an efficient way for collecting ballast water in ports. A barge collects untreated ballast water from vessels throughout the port. Once full the barge will moor to a larger pontoon for storage and treatment.
It allows vessels to quickly discharge ballast water at ship’s own pump flow rate and continue their journey with little to no delay in ETA/ETD. Ship owner’s responsibility ends immediately after discharge and vessels are no longer required to wait for actual treatment.
Treated water from the pontoon can be either discharged according to latest regulations and standards or be provided to other vessels for ballasting purposes.
At the pontoon, installations can treat at a flow rate of 1.000m3/h and no holding time is required.
