Albion Marine Solutions employs cutting-edge testing equipment for the commissioning of Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS).  Albion Marine is busy and consistently providing VGP, Ballast Water sampling, and support services to its clients worldwide. We have completed Ballast water sampling for countless vessels and ships in approving vessels that their Ballast water treatment systems that have been installed will perform in accordance with type approval and meet IMO D-2 discharge standards. 

Albion Ballast water sampling team is efficient and effective; We carry out Ballast water sampling after a thorough analysis to ensure that shipping activities are carried out safely and cleanly. Biological indicator compliance monitoring sampling of ballast water effluent must be conducted one or two times a year depending on the quality of the Type Approval Data.  

Introduction

Water sampling in connection with commissioning testing, also known as commissioning sampling, is being implemented for newly installed ballast water treatment systems. The IMO requirement was established in MEPC 74, an amendment to the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments (BWM Convention).

The commissioning sampling regulation

The amendment mandates that sampling be performed as part of the operational testing of the ballast water treatment system after the installation is completed and finalized. The sampling must be carried out in accordance with BWM.2/ Circ.70, Guidance for commissioning testing of ballast water management systems.

What commissioning sampling is – and is not

The ballast water treatment solution is not validated by commissioning samples. That is confirmation supplied by the type approval, which is a certification of conformity. The design of a typical ballast water treatment system. The design has previously been demonstrated to meet the requirements. Rather, commissioning sampling ensures that the implemented system matches the type approval's performance specifications. It's a tool for detecting deviations from type-approved performance, which could be caused by a manufacturing flaw or an incorrect installation. The sample is part of the commissioning testing, which confirms that all mechanical, physical, chemical, and biological functions are in working order.

 

The commissioning sampling procedure

BWM.2/Circ.70, Guidance for the commissioning testing of ballast water management systems, lays forth a step-by-step approach for commissioning sampling. The given below are the required steps:

  • Sampling of ambient waters
  • Sampling of ballast water discharge
  • Evaluation of compliance with IMO D-2
  • Reporting
