There’s one thing you don’t want in ballast water treatment: limits on your business. Although type approval certificates define System Design Limitations, the ways they affect you can be difficult to see. Compliance Navigator takes the mystery out of selection, by comparing potential systems with the conditions and limitations on your vessel’s trade routes.
Compliance Navigator guides you through key parameters and decisions in selecting a ballast water treatment system. The tool will help you:
Compliance Navigator uses a simple, step-by-step approach to identify your needs and find a potential solution. The tool has two main sections:
After selecting your vessel type – which can influence the solution and configuration you need – Compliance Navigator asks you to choose ports of call from an interactive map. For each port you choose, you’ll see information about conditions* that may impact your choice of system, plus relevant information about PureBallast 3.
* All parameters and conditions are gathered from reliable third-party sources.
Based on your vessel and route, Compliance Navigator will suggest a PureBallast 3 system to meet your needs. You can then explore its components or refine the recommendation by adjusting the flow and other parameters. As a final step, you can download a summary of the issues on your trade route and the PureBallast 3 system that addresses them.
