Ballast water treatment system - a requirement
Ships built after September 8, 2017 are bound by the requirements of the IMO convention concerning treatment of ballast water, while existing ships must have a ballast water treatment system installed by September 8, 2024. Also, all ships are already required to have an approved ballast water management plan in place. These regulations will apply to all ships all over the world, not just in Norway, with effect from September 8, 2019.

"Norwegian Greentech has developed a compact, energy-efficient and user-friendly ballast water treatment system that fits in very well with our other focus areas. Norwegian Greentech has technology that contributes to strengthening our strategic focus as a sustainable technology company." says chairman of the board Gunnar Larsen.
