    Abstract

    Although a minority of shipowners regard the Ballast Water Management Convention as completely impractical, many view its ratification as a foregone conclusion. If that is the case, they will need to avoid down time and loss of earnings when it enters into force. Can shipowners meet requirements of the Convention in time? Even while yards are gearing up to a surge in retrofit work and equipment manufacturers are busy setting up installation businesses and partners, it remains unclear if a bottleneck can be avoided. The focus of IMarEST’s Ballast Water Technology Conference - to highlight the challenges facing shipowners and managers and the technical solutions available; offering both practical and critical guidance as to the most appropriate systems to adopt to ensure their regulatory compliance – offered by the experts and marine engineers most qualified to advise shipping. The Conference was held under the auspices of the IMarEST Ballast Water Expert Group (BWEG), the membership of which encompasses all industry stakeholders: including representatives of the IMOGloBallast, the Global Industry Alliance and the North Sea BW Opportunity Project.
