Over 300 attendees have participated in ACI’s series of Ballast Water Management conferences. Ballast water management has taken a forefront position on the agenda of many shipowners and more and more states have ratified the convention. The 2012 event will provide you with real case studies of how shipowners have gone through the process of selection and integration of ballast water systems. There will be greater comparison of different systems to give you better information on your selection process. You will also hear the latest on the ratification process and regional regulatory requirements.

“ACI’s Ballast Water Management event in Hamburg was extremely useful for me, I found the speakers, the content and the organisation to be all of the highest quality.”

Rodolphe Querou, Dow Microbial Control

“If the selection of a compliant WBM system is a potential career killer, then attending the 6th BWM summit in Hamburg increased my chances for survival. The summit took away so many unknowns in the equation that I can now focus on essentials when meeting the Suppliers. It accelerates our selection process considerably.”  

Ir. H. Everaert, Exmar Marine NV

“For MMC Green Technology the 6th Ballast Water Conference in Hamburg was of great interest and high quality. ACI manage to collect a variety of speakers and companies with high expertise to a forum that focuses on the important and unanswered questions in the coming ballast water convention.”

Børge Gjelseth, MMC Green Technology

“The summit was really well organised, and I had several new networking opportunities. The venue was amazing, the speakers and their presentations were generally good and in some cases excellent.”

Valerio Cardetta, Filtrex

“I found the ACI Ballast Water Management conference in Hamburg 2012 to be good, the presentations and speakers were of the highest quality and professionalism”.
