Ballast Water Management: a Comparison Between UV Based and Electrochlorination Systems

This white paper provides an overview of the two most prominent ballast water management (BWMS) technologies installed on today’s vessels-ultraviolet (UV)-based systems and electrochlorination (EC) systems.

It offers a comparison between the two technologies and explores the benefits and challenges faced by their operators.

In particular, this white paper puts a spotlight on the so far overlooked but potentially serious complications related to operating UV BWMS with different operating modes to obtain respectively USCG or IMO compliance.
