HRS: Ballast Water Management Seminar
BWM – a seminar dedicated to the topic of Ballast Water Management (BWM) and its impact on the shipping and port sectors in the Baltic Sea Region and worldwide.
The meeting will take place during the Transport Week 2017 in Sopot, on the 8th of March 2017 and is aimed at top representatives from the European shipping and port sector, tech experts and policy makers.
The recently ratified IMO International Convention for Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments (BWMC) will soon enter into force. It is a response to the growing problem of introducing invasive species from ship’s ballast water and associated sediments into water basins.
These new regulations require proper planning and preparation in form of standards and procedures for ballast water treatment, as well as the installation of certified on-board ballast water treatment systems.
The Harbours Review Spotlight: BWM is the perfect platform for the exchange of know-how, ideas and experiences related to this vital topic.
