Testing of InvaSave Ballast Water Treatment Services in Ports

InvaSave is a mobile system, presented in the form of a standard container, which can be placed close to a ship ) on the quay, on a barge or in a truck.

The water pumped from the ship into the ballast tank is treated with high density UV to destroy the micro-organisms, in accordance with the International Convention on ballast water management. InvaSave is currently the only port processing system that has been certified by the IMO. The system is innovative and provides a vital service in the event of failure of on-board systems or where on-board systems do not exist.
Project Partner Damen have developed the InvaSave 300 Mobile Ballast Water Treatment System which, through this project, has been tested in Las Palmas in the Canary Islands, Lisbon, Gijon and will be tested in Brest this year.
