DNV concludes safety assessment of OxyCleanTM BWMS

DNV has conducted a safety assessment of DESMI Ocean Guard’s ballast water treatment system “OxyCleanTM”. On January 24’th 2013 DNV issued their final report which concludes: “The OxyClean BWMS meets, by following the requirements presented in this report, DNV’s standards for safety.”

 

The outcome of the safety assessment is very satisfactory for DESMI Ocean Guard as it confirms that the OxyCleanTM system has been designed with maximum attention to safety issues.

With this report* in hand DESMI Ocean Guard is now better positioned for a smooth and quick approval of future installations of the OxyCleanTM system on ships classed by DNV.

 

Previously the OxyCleanTM BWMS has been type approved by Lloyd’s Register of shipping.
