Atlantium Technologies Introduces Purestream Ballast Water Management System

Atlantium Marine, a part of Atlantium Technologies Ltd., announced the introduction of Purestream, its proprietary ballast water management system (BWMS) developed to meet the IMO D-2 standard and the USCG Ballast Water Discharge Standard (BWDS). Purestream uses filtration in combination with Atlantium’s proven medium pressure ultraviolet (UV) technology to achieve unparalleled results. The Purestream system is validated to operate at minimum retention times (≤ 24-hours) following treatment of 100% of the maximum flow under difficult water conditions with UV transmittance as low as 40% UVT. Atlantium has finalized the first two stages of the validation process — the readiness evaluation and the land-based validation. The validation process is in accordance with the IMOs BWMS Code and the USCG CFR 162.060; with Lloyds Register as Independent Lab and NIVA as the test facility. For the IMO, Purestream is the only UV-based BWMS technology capable of treating ballast water to meet the BWDS with a single pass. Atlantium’s proprietary One-pass approach requires operation of the technology only during ballasting, there are no requirements for operation during de-ballasting. This unique...
