SeaCURE™ Ballast Water Management System BrochureSource: Siemens Industry, Inc. - Water Technologies
The introduction of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) via ships’ ballast water is an increasingly disastrous ecological issue. Numerous mechanical, physical and chemical treatments that may reduce such occurrences are presently being investigated. The 2004 International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments is the major driving force for the development and adaptation of ballast water treatment systems. Today, new regulations developed by The Maritime Environmental Protection Committee (MEPC) of the United Nations’ International Maritime Organization (IMO) are being put in place to address AIS issues.
Siemens Water Technologies helps customers navigate these regulatory challenges by providing cost-effective treatment systems that help conserve energy and that offer flexible equipment configurations requiring virtually no operator attention. Siemens Chloropac® and Capac® technologies are well-regarded in the maritime industry and have been proven to control biological fouling and corrosion wherever sea water is used as cooling or process water. Now, Siemens’ newest maritime solution, the SeaCURE™ ballast water management system, offers a safe, reliable solution for adhering to IMO regulations for ballast water.
Since 1950, our proprietary Electrocatalytic line of core technologies has provided superior technical solutions to the maritime industry worldwide. A division of the Siemens Industry Solutions group, Water Technologies, capitalizes on the world-class experience, technology, R&D support, and manufacturing facilities of the group which provides innovative solutions and services to the maritime industry, resulting in improved life cycle costs and reduced system maintenance.
