Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS) Specialists
The newly ratified IMO Ballast Water Management Convention has created a melting pot for ballast water treatment technology helping to prevent the spread of invasive species across the globe. Ballast water management is now a key factor in the shipping industry and the deadline for compliance is near for most of the shipowners.
Avantis, working in collaboration with leading manufacturers, is an experienced turn-key retrofitter of BWTSs on all vessel types ranging from Bulk Carriers and LNG/LPG tankers to ferries and cruise ships.
Our engineering team has accumulated years of experience installing a wide variety of systems during both vessel docking and service allowing prospective clients to choose what system and installation schedule suits their needs most. Our globally positioned team can execute any BWTS project irrespective of geographical location with support from our corporate office in the UK or from any other of the other 6 main offices.
We can prefabricate in our workshops most of the piping for the WBTS in order to provide the best solution in terms of execution time for installation during navigation.
We have now experience with more than 20 different manufacturers of ballast water treatment and executed more than 50 BWTS installations.
We are confident we can support our clients in the yard, alongside and in navigation for any WBTS installation.
