Water Ballast T.

Our time is now very demanding which is why our company is interested in seeking solutions in the marine environment and towards the benefit of the shipowning companies. So we end up looking for a combination of two things, economy and ecological consciousness.

The above reasons implore us to support the installation of ballast water treatment system of ERMA FIRST, which has been specially designed micro-tubes for filtration of seawater. Cyclone water turbulence are the product of research and development ERMA FIRST and used exclusively by them. The above innovations support the continuous operation of the system without the possibility of blockage.

Similarly, the lack of moving parts contributes to the low cost of operation and maintenance of the system.
