Mr Giles Candy, Business Development, Environcleanse, discusses the biggest challenges that industry should pay attention for effective implementation of the BWM Convention which entered into force on September 8th Mr. Candy encourages operators to focus on accurate information, never make plans at last minute, use a successful BWTS which impacts vessel operations as little as possible and choose systems which show confidence in compliance.
Ballast Water Treatment expert- 15 years working in the BW industry. Developed, tested, certified, as well as sold and installed BWTS from 500m3/hr to 6,350m3/hr. Tracked the development of BW regulations and compliance requirements all over the world. Completed BWTS Type Approvals. Understand the marine and regulatory requirements to help a fleet establish a practical economic BW compliance strategy. A BWTS is a "bolt-in" system to be integrated with the vessel and it's operation, not a "bolt on" unit. I have watched, learned and understood the development of all different BWTS technologies.
