Support that runs both deep and wide

In choosing Alfa Laval PureBallast 3, you choose more than the leading ballast water treatment technology. You choose a supplier with total solutions, including the skills, resources and well-developed service offering to support your needs – today and tomorrow.

Training brings peace of mind in ballast water treatment and more

British Antarctic Survey (BAS) operates in some of the world’s harshest and most remote environments. When installing Alfa Laval systems on its new research vessel, the organization sent crew members for in-depth training at Alfa Laval training centres.

PureBallast training

PureBallast 3 is designed for ease of use so crews can quickly learn how to operate and maintain the system. However, ballast water treatment is still a relatively new application and a training course can ensure the crew runs the system with low operational cost and in a way that maximizes the lifetime of the system. Investing in PureBallast trainings means the crew attains competence about the application area and about how to best operate your PureBallast system. Our trainings are available on board your vessel, at our training facilities around the world and digitally.

Compliance Service Package

As the deadlines for choosing a ballast water treatment system draw closer, more ship owners are realizing the long-term implications of this one-time investment. Beyond the choice of technology, supplier service capabilities are coming into focus.

Before ballast water regulations entered into force, the discussion on the market centred largely on the differences between treatment methods. Today, however, a growing share of it focuses on the differences between suppliers. Given that ballast water treatment systems should comply throughout the vessel lifetime, ship owners are concerned about supplier stability and technical support down the road, especially when it comes to accessing parts.

Retrofitting PureBallast 3

Alfa Laval is well prepared for the technical and logistical challenges of retrofitting a vessel for ballast water treatment.

Tailored retrofit solutions

On most vessels there is no existing space or consideration for ballast water treatment. The compactness and flexibility of PureBallast 3 Compact Flex will simplify a retrofit, but Alfa Laval’s hands-on knowledge and proven working procedures are even more important.

Alfa Laval has worked with retrofit installations for a decade. Our capabilities, accumulated knowledge and flexible project management make us the most qualified supplier for your retrofit needs. We customize each project to meet your requirements, even offering budgeting assistance and financing options.

Cooperation and flexibility

Retrofits involve partnerships, often at a global level. We can work with your engineering department and chosen yard, or we can secure competencies from our own network for engineering support, 3D laser scanning, class approval and more.

Likewise, we can meet your existing docking schedule or arrange for installation during your voyage. As a global organization with strong logistics, we can even move with your project if your trading routes change prior to docking. Our presence and capabilities worldwide ensure a smooth and successful project, even when major changes occur.
