Shipboard Testing Equipment

Shipboard Efficacy Testing

Providing supportive evidence to help you pass your next Port State Inspection.

A manufacturer’s type approval is not a guarantee for a Ballast Water Treatment System to meet ballast water performance standards once installed.

The Centre provides independent and impartial shipboard testing of installed systems. Our team of experts will visit your vessel(s) in port to sample and test discharged ballast water to assess and report efficacy against the IMO D-2 ballast water performance standard and/or the US Environment Protection Agency Vessel General Permit requirements.

What our clients say:

..."I would highly recommend the team for their flexibility, commitment to getting the job done and their ability to deliver on time and to cost"...
- Paul Chesman - Alstom

..."The professional way in which the sampling was conducted, and the detailed reports provided has given us reassurance that the system works as intended, and confidence that it will continue to meet the demanding requirements of cruise itineraries. "...
- Richard Catt - Environmental Manager - Carnival UK

..."PML Applications, with its unique blend of marine scientists, project management skills and deep understanding of the requirements of the IMO BWT Convention represented the perfect partner to carry out this work. We will continue to work with PML in the future as new projects and challenges arise. "...
- Andrew Marshall - Coldharbour Marine

..."We contacted PML Applications for expert assistance in a large international dispute....PML Applications’ support was a strong factor in achieving an outstanding success in the case. I would have no hesitation in turning to PML Applications again for expert assistance."...
