USCG approves the new testing facility for BWMS

Very welcome news for the maritime industry. After two major BWMS test facilities announced they will no longer test BWMS fort USCG Type Approval certification, we are glad to see there are more options becoming available.

In Albion Marine's opinion, it will help to prevent a shortage of approved systems for the peak of BWMS retrofit market. The US Coast Guard approved Cal Maritime's Golden Bear Facility to work with DNV-GL as a sub-contracted laboratory for land-based and shipboard testing of Ballast Water Management Systems.
