Protecting the environment of our seas

The International Maritime Organisation has identified more than 7,000 species of marine life worldwide that are transported by ships to ballast water. On average, there are 112 million plankton, 1,000 bacteria, and 10,000 viruses per 1m3 of ballast water, and there are 3,000-4,000 species of organisms carried in the global ballast water every day. If these organisms are able to grow and reproduce and establish populations in natural or semi-natural ecosystems or environments due to lack of natural enemies or other reasons, they may directly threaten the ecosystem structure and species diversity of these bays, estuaries or inland waters, and can report harmful parasites and pathogens, and even lead to the extinction of local species, so the microbial control of ballast water is urgent.

Our optimised UV solution can deliver reliable water security for the ballast water treatment system, as an effective microbial control and environment-friendly solution.
