Optimarin is the market proven choice for trusted, reliable, simple and 100% globally compliant ballast water treatment (BWT).
Through more than twenty years of experience, Optimarin focus exclusively on continuous improvement and supplying environmentally friendly BWT solutions for the shipping industry.
Optimarin has sold more than 500 of its market proven Optimarin Ballast Systems (OBS) and delivered close to 400.
Our newbuild and retrofit experience is second to none, with over 60 retrofits completed and newbuild contracts with a who’s who of key global yards. This ensures our worldwide customers unparalleled expertise, understanding, and complete peace of mind.
Our range of systems also include Ex systems & pre-assembled units.
For optimal fleet flexibility, you need the ultimate in regulatory compliance.
OBS was the first BWT system to achieve full USCG approval – a landmark for the entire ballast water sector. USCG BWT approval is the most stringent in the industry, meaning that once a system has satisfied its exacting testing criteria it effectively has a worldwide ‘ticket to trade’.
Add this to full IMO approval and certification from DNV GL, Lloyd’s, Bureau Veritas, MLIT Japan, and American Bureau of Shipping and you can rest assured that you have the best technology, reputation and compliance the market can offer.
Simple, effective, reliable
OBS combines simplicity with innovation, utilising a combination of automatic back flushing, self-cleaning filters and powerful UV irradiation to neutralise all potentially invasive species in ballast water.
With a modular nature, the system is flexible and easy to install on any vessel (newbuild and retrofit) – even those with the most restrictive space demands. Our solution does not use nor generate chemicals in its process. The system is purely based on filtration as pre-treatment and high doses of UV irradiation for inactivation of marine organisms. Most importantly: It is simple to operate and maintain.
Whatever your vessel, whatever your operations, whatever your individual requirements – Optimarin has the experience and technology your business demands.
