Alfa Laval saiys it continues to move swiftly towards the submission of a US Coast Guard (USCG) type approval application for Alfa Laval PureBallast 3.1. The company has performed half of the required land-based tests and is set to conclude the remainder of these within Q2.
Alfa Laval remains on track to submit its application for USCG type approval after requisite tests of PureBallast are finished in Q2 of 2016. Half of the required land-based procedures have now been completed using the USCG-approved CMFDA/FDA (staining) method. The tests, which have been performed at DHI in Denmark, have all returned strong biological disinfection results.
“Alfa Laval has a robust biological disinfection technology and has mobilized quickly following the USCG's rejection of most probable number method,” says Stephen Westerling Greer, Global Business Manager for PureBallast. “As a dedicated supplier approaching 100 years of marine service, we have made USCG type approval a top priority.”
Westerling Greer concludes, “Alfa Laval's vast experience in marine engineering, combined with specific knowledge in the design of ballast water treatment systems, is allowing us to secure a fast and positive testing outcome.”
