Ballast is no longer ballast

In order to maintain stability during transit along the coast and on the open ocean, vessels fill their ballast tanks with water. While it is crucial for safe and efficient modern shipping operations, it may cause serious ecological, economic and health problems due to the multitude of marine species carried in ships’ ballast water. Optimarin AS based in Sandnes, Norway, is a leading supplier of environmentally friendly systems for the purification of ballast water.
