Having pioneered the application, Alfa Laval and PureBallast are the most established choices in ballast water treatment.
Alfa Laval has been involved with ballast water treatment for more than a decade. Besides developing treatment technology, we have provided biological and technical competence on key panels whose role is to develop standards and educate the market.
PureBallast, which was developed in cooperation with Wallenius Water, is a mature system that has long been at the forefront of ballast water treatment. The original system, launched in 2006, was the very first commercially available treatment solution.
More than 1600 PureBallast systems have been sold to date, hundreds of which have already been delivered and commissioned. Hundreds of PureBallast systems have been installed as retrofits, and installations have been performed worldwide at a diverse range of shipyards.
Just as importantly, PureBallast been chosen for a diversity of vessel types: container ships, tankers, bulk carriers, offshore supply vessels, naval vessels and more.
Alfa Laval has received PureBallast orders for a wide range of vessel types, which have come from ship owners doing business all over the world.
Both standard and Ex versions of PureBallast have been certified by the major classification societies.
