22nd Ballast Water Management Conference

Date: 27th February 2019 - 28th February 2019 Location: Singapore

ACI’s 22nd Ballast Water Management Conference  will bring together senior ballast water industry professionals to unravel the international ballast regulation mesh, discuss successful system installations, share solution driven case studies to handle technical and operational failures and create resilient ballast water treatment strategies.

Answers to: What, When & How?

  • What’s next following Entry Into Force?
  • When is the deadline to Comply with regulations?
  • How to Plan BWMS integration & Prevent operational failures?

Due to time implications and various regulation changes many questions are unanswered:

  • How will type approval affect the deadlines for compliance?
  • What current options are available for the ship-owners?
  • How are suppliers going to guarantee the systems meet requirements for both IMO & UGSC?

All these questions would be answered at the 22nd Ballast Water Management Conference which will provide essential, expert guidance to shipowner/operators on how to prepare for and manage the BWT Systems in terms of selection, installation and technical operations in accordance with the compliances. It would provide an ideal platform for industry leading researchers, technology developers, industrial players and supply chain partners to converge. Bringing the pioneers together the conference aims to promote the methodologies, exchange of ideas and the way forward to commercialisation.
