BIO-SEA USCG TYPE APPROVAL PROCESS
 

BIO-SEA from BIO-UV Group, the European leader in water treatment for more than 17 years, has developed BIO-SEA Ballast Water Treatment Systems based on its core expertise, the UV technology.

We are pleased to confirm that all tests dedicated to USCG Type approval certification have been successfully passed with great performances of our BIO-SEA B range.

  • Our land-based tests have been performed at DHI DK and NIVA Laboratories in fresh, brackish and marine waters.
  • The BIO-SEA range will be approved with NO Holding Time (T0).
  • Our shipboard tests have been performed on 2 CMA CGM container vessels (700m3/h and 1400m3/h), and the ballast water treatment system has been used routinely during ships operations, trading all over the world during a 2-year period.

The BIO-SEA USCG Type Approval will now enter in its administrative stage with DNV-GL as IL. The USCG official document is expected in the first part of 2018.

The BIO-SEA systems are USCG ready and with one BIO-SEA system, ship owners will be able to operate under IMO or US mode.
