CompactClean OptIMO

Save costs with the CompactClean OptIMO Ballast Water Management System for vessels trading globally, but where reduced flowrate in US territory can be accepted.

If your vessel trades primarily outside of US waters...

in International Maritime Organization (IMO)-regulated waters, we offer the CompactClean OptIMO system for ballast water management.

The CompactClean OptIMO system is designed to utilize the fact, that the IMO regulations uses MPN test method for approvals, which is more suitable for UV systems.

 

Thus, the CompactClean OptIMO BWMS uses an optimized and energy saving UV reactor to treat the ballast water, based on the same proven and high-quality technology as the well known DESMI CompactClean BWMS. This saves ship owners money on purchase and running costs.

Dual mode: IMO and USCG

Even though CompactClean OptIMO is optimized for full flow in IMO waters, it can still be used in USCG waters at 75% of max flowrate. Thus, if the unit size handles 1000 m3/h of water in IMO waters, it will handle 750 m3/h of water in USCG waters. 

 

Dual-mode software takes care of the correct treatment scheme after the operator inputs which mode to operate the system in. The destination port will determine whether the system should operate in IMO or USCG mode.

UV treatment at very challenging water quality

CompactClean OptIMO can, like CompactClean, handle water with low UV-transmission (UV-T) rate of 40% in US territory. Furthermore, CompactClean OptIMO has been certified to treat the water with UV-T transmission quality all the way down to the darkest of water (35% UV-T) in IMO mode.
