The fresh water filling is an automatic function that drains the sea water
inside the filter, and refills with fresh water from the ships fresh water tanks.
Connecting the Optimarin Ballast System to an GPS source onboard, provides the opportunity for logging of coordinates for each operation. The OBS time and date can also be automatically synced with the vessels GPS time.READ MORE
With nearly 100 completed retrofit projects, Optimarin knows where the challenges lies. One of the challenges are to gather signals from pumps and valves that can bypass the BWTS.
Please welcome the solution: “Interlock Panel”.
OptiLink can be achieved by connecting the “Optimarin Ballast System” to the vessel’s computer network. The connection is done using standard Ethernet (min. CAT5E) cable connected between OBS Control Panel and the computer network.READ MORE
The OBS can be remotely operated in a number of different ways. From the simplest to the most advanced.READ MORE
During tank emptying, the flow of ballast water to the suction pump can become restricted by the bottom structure; consequently, the main ballast pump will often lose suction before tank is completely empty. Adding the “Stripping” option to the Optimarin Ballast System, makes it easy for the operator to remove remaining ballast water through an ejector.READ MORE
