Damen’s Ballast Water Treatment service available in eight Northern European Ports

Published in category: Green

Ship owners are now able to treat their unmanaged ballast water or load cleaned ballast water in eight different Northern European ports using Damen’s unique IMO certified InvaSave ballast water management system. In a partnership between Damen Green Solutions and Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC), this ballast water reception/bunkering service will be available in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Brest, Dunkerque, Vlissingen, Den Helder, Stellendam and Harlingen.

Damen’s InvaSave world’s first external ballast water offer ship owners a port-based ballast water solution. With this partnership, vessels coming into these eight ports will be able to take advantage of a one-stop-shop for their ballast water treatment requirements.

Philip Rabe from Damen Green Solutions says:

“Our goal is to build up a reliable worldwide ballast water service network. With our ballast water bunkering service we can both accept used ballast water for disposal, as well as fill up ballast water tanks with certified clean water at the port of departure.”

As a result, this eliminates the need for ballast water exchange. Using the InvaSave ballast water treatment service in the port, vessels can load clean, D2 standard, ballast water at the quay without the need to operate their own on-board treatment systems.

Showing its commitment to build up a worldwide ballast water reception/bunkering service, Damen Green Solutions is in talks with several other ports and harbor service providers around the world to offer the InvaSave service.
