Early Stage Proof of Concept Testing

Providing confirmation of the efficacy of your ballast water treatment concept.

Testing your concept will enable you to show its potential to meet regulatory discharge standards, prepare you for G8 type approval testing and reassure your investors.

The Centre operates an experienced and impartial test facility, working with clients to test and support the efficacy of prototype ballast water treatment systems, providing detail on whether a concept works and helping to develop systems, improve treatment and meet regulatory standards.  

Prototype testing helps our clients to reduce their type approval costs by ensuring they are ready for the expensive G8 testing. Our experts provide confidential advice on areas that may need adjustment or a complete review to assist and advise on type approval application.
