This seminar builds on roundtable discussions hosted by Fairplay earlier this year in London, Athens, Hamburg, Singapore, and Seattle around the cost of compliance for shipowners as they weigh ballast water equipment investment decisions.

It will focus more specifically on the technologies that are becoming available in the USD30-60Bn ballast water equipment market, and the factors shipowners must consider when choosing a ballast water treatment system. The seminar will also reveal some of the concerns raised in the limited amount of experience with ballast water equipment in commercial shipping operations.

Presentations by four ballast water equipment manufacturers will expand the discussion on the various technologies and how they work, as well as provide an opportunity to show how manufacturers are addressing the operational concerns raised by shipowners up to this point.
