At Longitude Engineering, we assist and support our clients on their journey towards compliance with the Ballast Water Management Convention. While a ship may not immediately require a ballast water treatment plant, there will need to be a plan for port state inspection.
Some owners have decided to meet the convention head-on and ensure that their ships are fully compliant with the convention by fitting a treatment plant. Whichever approach is taken, Longitude can provide support.
Our marine engineers and naval architects can assist with all aspects of ballast water management, from simple advice on what is required, all the way through to retro-fit installation designs.
We are happy to take on your project, delivering a turnkey service and a single point of contact should you require it. We are equally happy to work alongside system manufacturers and installers alike, tailoring our involvement to suit the project partners.
Longitude’s design centres undertake system design work and 3D modelling, and are located near class society plan approval centres. Longitude is part of a wider group of companies which maintains a network of surveying offices around the world, whose staff are able to attend vessels in order to determine installation requirements and collect requisite design information.
Longitude is currently working for shipyards, vessel owners and BWTS suppliers on a variety of vessels, from offshore installations to ferries.
