Studies of Ballast Water Treatment Systems


The Great Lakes Ballast Technology Demonstration Project seeks the assistance of the marine industry in designing cost-effective, operationally sound and biologically effective ballast water treatment solutions. The Project is offering funds for three six-month full-scale design studies by teams of ship owners/naval architects and treatment vendors of promising ballast water treatment systems. Designs for installation in both new and existing ships are of interest.

The studies will be funded at a maximum of $40,000 each. Matching contributions from teaming partners that enhance the scope of the effort and/or reduce the cost of the proposed effort to the Project will be viewed favorably in the award decision. Proposed studies should include the following:
a) A target flow-through ballast treatment system with supporting studies which indicate that the system is likely to be at least as effective as ballast water exchange.
b) A target vessel (existing or new construction) with the following characteristics: a St. Lawrence Seaway size bulk carrier with ballast pump capacity of about 2,000 t/hr; a 2,000 TEU or greater container ship regularly trading into a US port; other vessel of 10,000 tonnes displacement or greater.
c) A design concept for retrofit and/or new construction (new construction concepts must relate to an existing complete specific ship design) that describes the most cost-effective means of incorporating the treatment system into ship operations.
