BWTS Finder


Developed with
DNV GL Maritime Advisory

The BWTS Finder is an easy to use and efficient online tool.

Ship owners/ managers can find out within minutes which Ballast Water Treatment Systems, which models of which manufacturers match a certain vessel‘s technical specifications and therefore may possibly be suitable for installation.

Which benefits does the BWTS Finder have?

Ship Owners/ Managers:

  • No longer need to costly find out about, familiarize with and analyze
    • technical specifications
    • operational capabilities
    • regulatory restrictions
    of BWTS

  • Have impartially searched the entire market
  • Receive a transparent, objective - matching! - overview of BWTS
  • Make a fully informed, rational and more efficient BWTS pre-selection based on technical criteria
  • Reduce procurement cost
  • Reduce risk of cost overrun due to full style professional RFQ‘s

How does the BWTS Finder work?

Technical vessel specifications are matched with technical data of BWTS. Systems that comply with the vessel design and it’s technical installations are properly filed in an easy to compare overview that includes all relevant technical and performance data. Criteria taken into account are for example:

  • Vessel design, i.a.: power supply, pump capacity, explosion proof
  • Vessel operation, i.a.: time frames of ballast operations, water temperature, water turbidity, water salinity
  • Regulations, i.a.: G8, G9, USCG approval
  • Product specifications such as: operational parameter, consumptions for e.g. total power requirement, etc.

What does the BWTS Finder do?

  • Delivers a product specific list of BWT Systems technically suitable to possibly be installed on a specific vessel
  • Offers an easy to use tool to select BWT Systems along own criteria (consumptions, operations, etc.)
  • Delivers professional full style RFQ‘s for easy and efficient purchase of selected BWTS
  • Factors in/ includes information on 80+ makers with any approval (not restricted to systems with DNV GL approval!)

What does the BWTS Finder not do?

The BWTS Finder does not take into account and does not advise on:

  • Prices/ purchase cost of different BWTS
  • Operational reliability (no data available up to date)
  • Specific commercial characteristics such as CAPEX and OPEX (too many influencing factors, too large of a variance)
  • Maintenance and support availability and quality (too complex to measure)
  • Financial stability of manufacturer (publicly non-disclosable information)
  • Investment in ongoing R&D of manufacturer (publicly non-disclosable information)
