Top Water Flow offers three different solutions for Ballast Water Treatment:

On-board solution

The BWT module is fitted on board the ship, allowing the vessel to be 100% compliant with the IMO and USCG regulations and sail into any harbour round the world

Harbour solution

The BWT module is fitted onboard a barge or tug boat, which on request will connect to the ship in need for treatment of its Ballast Water.

On-shore solution

The BWT module is fixed onshore, and connected to the ships during docking. During the transfer phase, ships can de-ballast
