BIO-UV Group selected with its partner The Columbia Group, by the U.S. Navy to equip future U.S. ships with a military version of its BIO- SEA BWTS
BIO-UV Group, a specialist in disinfection systems for water treatment, surfaces, and spaces, with its American partner The Columbia Group, Inc. a service and engineering company supporting the U.S. Government, have been selected by the U.S. Navy, following an international call for tenders, to develop a military version of its UV ballast water disinfection system to equip future ships of the United States Navy.
Until now, military vessels have operated outside the scope of the “USCG Standards for Living Organisms in Ship’s Ballast Water Discharged in US Waters” regulation applicable since 2016 and which governs the management of ballast water in American waters. However, future American military vessels will need to be equipped with ballast water treatment systems. Working with The Columbia Group, BIO-UV Group will design ruggedized ballast water treatment systems, covering ship ballast pump
capacities from 300 m3/h up to 1,000 m3/h.
