|Albion Marine Solutions is Canada’s only ABS recognized service supplier for biological testing of Ballast Water Treatment System|
Biological testing by sampling at a ballast water treatment system’s commissioning is done to confirm that the BWTS installed on a ship meets the IMO’s proposed D-2 discharge standard. The D-2 discharge standard is required by Singapore’s administration and already recommended by the Bahamas and Panama’s administrations prior to the entry into force of the amended Regulation E-1 of the IMO’s BWM Convention (3 October 2021).
Albion Marine Solutions offers ballast water sampling as part of BWTS maintenance checks.
