The technology group Wärtsilä’s Aquarius UV and Aquarius EC ballast water management systems have been granted compliance with the IMO’s Resolution MEPC 300 (72) for the Approval of Ballast Water Management Systems on behalf of the Norwegian Maritime Authority. The approval was granted by the classification society DNV-GL who simultaneously awarded the system Type Approval status in accordance with their classification rules. The certifications were awarded to Wärtsilä in March and June respectively. Compliance with the IMO Resolution, which is otherwise known in shipping circles as the Revised G8, is important for ship owners globally. All vessels installing a BWMS from October 28 this year and onwards will need to comply with the international BWMS Code.

The Wärtsilä UV system is based on filter ultraviolet disinfection. It has already been awarded Type Approval under the original guidelines by the IMO and by the United States Coastguard as well as Ex Certification by Dekra Exam GmbH and Lloyds Register Design Approval.
