DESMI Ocean Guard to speak at BWMTech
Mr. Rasmus Folsø, CEO of DESMI Ocean Guard A/S, will be sharing experiences obtained with US Coast Guard type approval process of ballast water treatment systems, at the upcoming Ballast Water Management Technology (BWMTech) conference in London, 8-10 December 2015. DESMI Ocean Guard’s RayClean ballast water treatment system is among the first systems in the world to have completed a full USCG type approval test program, and based on this Folsø will share important insights and learnings. The title of the presentation is “USCG type approval process: the manufacturer’s experience so far”, and it will amongst other things address differences between the IMO G8 test guideline and the USCG test requirements. This includes differences in landbased tests, shipboard tests and environmental equipment testing. Also, the presentation will touch on the progress made regarding USCG type approval of UV based systems.
The third day of the conference will be a special focus day titled “A Practical Guide to G8 and USCG type approval process”. Also during this focus day Mr. Folsø will be delivering a speech regarding experience with type approval testing according to USCG requirements.
We look forward to participating in the BWMTech conference and to meet with old and new customers, colleagues and partners.
