We understand that a primary concern of shipowners is reliable performance of the systems installed on their vessels.

This means that not only must the systems start up and run reliably, they must also treat the water in accordance with the IMO and USCG standards.

Therefore our systems are tested and certified only by reputed and independent 3rd party organizations, and to the strictest standards applicable.



The CompactClean system is type approved according to both IMO, US Coast Guard and Lloyd’s Register standards. This means that the system is approved for treatment and discharge of ballast water everywhere in the world.

When installed on a vessel not classed by Lloyd’s Register, the CompactClean system installation will be approved by the Class of the vessel.
