Overwhelmed by the thought of retrofitting a ballast water treatment system? You’re not alone. But the right planning and guidance can minimize the challenges and costs. With experience from over a decade of PureBallast 3 retrofits, Alfa Laval has the insights, skills and routines to keep your retrofit project on course.
On most vessels there is no existing space or consideration for ballast water treatment. The compactness and flexibility of PureBallast 3 Compact Flex will simplify a retrofit, but Alfa Laval’s hands-on knowledge and proven working procedures are even more important.
Retrofits involve partnerships, often at a global level. We can work with your engineering department and chosen yard, or we can secure competencies from our own network for engineering support, 3D laser scanning, class approval and more.
PureBallast 3 is designed for ease of use, which means crews can quickly learn how to operate and maintain the ballast water treatment system. However, ballast water treatment is still a relatively new application.

As of 1st June 2022, biological commissioning testing is required after installing a ballast water treatment system.

Learn what’s at stake with biological commissioning testing – and how Alfa Laval can help when it comes to PureBallast 3 installations.
