Chemical Resupply

The Ecochlor Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) is simple to operate and maintain because there are:

Chemical resupply is quick, easy and handled exclusively by our Chemical Operations Team.

Using the Functional Monitoring Data Sheet provided by the crew after each ballasting operation, Ecochlor tracks chemical use, and arranges chemical resupply to the vessel at the appropriate time and location. Working with the vessel’s nominated agent, the Chemical Operations Team will coordinate the delivery of chemicals to the vessel at berth or anchor. During chemical resupply there is no direct human contact because the entire process is closed, using special equipment and only Ecochlor trained personnel. Resupply takes approximately a ½ day to complete (dependent on tank size; this includes the clean-up and the removal of empty IBCs and submission of a detailed service report.

In close consultation with shipowners regarding current and potential vessel operations we are making sure that we place our chemical storage and resupply capabilities at strategic ports relevant to their trading routes.

The Ecochlor BWMS is simple, with only a few major components. It requires very little periodic maintenance.
