The US Coast Guard Marine Safety Center issued US Coast Guard Ballast Water Management System Type Approval Certificate to ERMA FIRST ESK Engineering Solutions S.A for its BWTS consisting of a three step process: filtration and electrolysis during uptake, and neutralization at discharge.

In April, the company informed that it had started the process of filling, becoming the first full flow electrolysis BWTS vendor worldwide to follow the certification steps for the required application. After a detailed review of the manufacturer’s type approval application, it was determined that the system met the requirements of 46 CFR 162.060.

The treatment principle of the ERMA FIRST BWTS FIT consists of a three step process consisting of filtration and electrolysis during uptake, and neutralization at discharge. This approval covers thirteen models with maximum treatment rated capacities between 90 m3/h and 3,740 m3/h.

Tested at three water salinities, ERMA FIRST BWTS offers a reliable, simple and effective solution for all types and sizes of vessels. The smooth testing process proves that the system has been carefully designed, developed and engineered so as to undergo the most rigorous testing and ensure reliable operation in challenging natural water conditions, the company claims.

Following Ecochlor, Optimarin, Alfa Laval and Sunrui, ERMA FIRST became the fifth manufacturer to receive USCG type approval.
