“We have been able to combine our knowledge of ship technology, water treatment in large scale, and pumping technology which has now resulted in a unique and very sophisticated concept based on proven technology. A clear advantage of our system is that it does not use any type of chemicals, which means there is no pollution as a result of the ballast water treatment,” said Christian Ingvorsen, CEO of DESMI Ocean Guard A/S.

The new ballast water treatment system uses very little energy and meets the International Maritime Organisation’s International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments.

DESMI Ocean Guard A/S is currently patenting the concept.
