As our systems are simple in design and straight forward in operational functionality, installation and commissioning can take less than three days with a correct pre-planning and preparation work, for which BIO-SEA by BIO-UV Group service teams can provide professional support . Crew training is usually performed in one day.

Commissioning sampling guidance

Commissioning sampling shows that the specific vessel equipped with the ballast water treatment system replicates the performance verified during the type approval and required by the BWM convention.
