BIO UV Group has designed a new series of BIO-SEA ballast water treatment system compatible with flow requirements of up to more than 2100m3 / h.

The new M-Series BWTS incorporates a new reactor arrangement designed to increase the throughput capacity of existing technology without the need for manifolds.

“This is a huge development in ballast water treatment,” said Xavier Deval, Commercial Director – BIO-SEA, BIO-UV Group. “With the M series, we see a significant advantage in terms of size, capacity and ease of installation. A manifoldless design allows shipowners to significantly optimize installation time and costs, while keeping the number of reactors required to an absolute minimum; only one or two depending on the flow required.

Speaking at an online event marking the official introduction of the M-Series, Deval explained that while the new version is based on the same technology inherent in previous incarnations of the BIO-SEA system, it is the development of the “M” reactor itself. which allowed the company to advance the product.

“The evolution of the BIO-SEA system means that shipowners and shipyards now have a high capacity ballast water treatment system from a unit that incorporates fewer UV lamps than competing systems on the market, ”Deval said.

“For a system with a capacity of 300 m3 / h, we can handle the volume with a single M02 two-lamp reactor. For a flow rate of 1040m3 / h, an M07 reactor with seven lamps would do the trick, while two of them will be able to treat 2100m3 / h. With the installation of additional reactors, a maximum flow capacity of 4000 m3 / h can theoretically be achieved.

A range of “M” reactors have been designed for different capacity requirements. These include M02 for flow rates between 190 and 300m3 / h, M04 for flow rates from 500 to 600m3 / h, M05 (500 to 750m3 / h), M07 (760 to 1040m3 / h), M08 (1040 to 1200m3 / h), M10 (1040-1500m3 / h), and the M14 for flow rates of 500-2100m3 / h.

Indeed, BIO-UV Group has developed with its own integrated engineering department a reduced version of its existing UV technology to reduce the system footprint and integration costs by at least 25%.

All environmental testing and UV assay testing was performed under the supervision of DNV. IMO and USCG certification documents are imminent.

Available as a modular system or on skids and with fewer components, which reduces the risk of corrosion, the M series is available with a short delivery time. A number of units are already on the shelves for immediate delivery.

The BIO-UV group will continue to manufacture and support the B BIO-SEA series B, as there are components and spare parts common to both treatment systems.

Several hundred BIO-SEA installations are currently operating around the world on a wide range of vessel types including container ships, bulk carriers, multi-cargo ships, cruise ships, passenger ferries, offshore vessels , warships and mega-yachts.
