MEA-nl has been performing Type Approval (TA) projects for ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) for more than 15 years.

The global IMO Ballast Water Management Code (BWMS Code), Res. MEPC.300(72) and the US EPA ETV protocol 2010 are the leading regulatory frameworks. MEA-nl is able to perform all related activities, including pre-testing (R&D and bench-scale tests) and TA projects (land-based and ship-board testing) leading to basic & final approval and US Coast Goard approval.

Ballast Water Management laboratory analysis

Besides this, we are able to perform Vessel General Permit sampling on-board of vessels, as well as the requested laboratory analysis. We have already succesfully performed VGP analyses for vessels using ballast water treatment without use of active substances (such as UV treatment).
