19th Ballast Water Management Conference
Date: 15th November 2017 - 16th November 2017 Location: Antwerp - Belgium
Following the announcement of the BWM Convention ratifying, retrofits for non-environmental vessels can no longer be avoided due to the IMO regulation that falls becomes fully effective on the 8th September, 2017. It’s estimated that $50 billion will be spent over the next five years on retrofits to vessel owners.
Due to time implications and various regulation changes many questions are left to be answered. How will type approval effect the deadlines for compliance? What current options are available for the ship-owners? How are suppliers going to guarantee the systems meet requirements for both regulatory bodies?
ACI’s 19th Ballast Water Management Summit will provide essential, expert guidance to shipowner/operators on how to prepare for and manage the BWT Systems in terms of selection, installation and technical operations, as well as advice on compliance, PSC and regulation once the convention is in place. The conference will also address Type Approval and system excellence for the BWT System Manufacturers.
