By sharing our service platform, we wish to solve the problem of customers and supply what they need. Together with all BEMA members, we could be able to provide the shipowners with a better ballast water management solution and build an all-win ‘Industrial Community of Common Destiny.’” The Chairman of BEMA, Mark Riggio, mentioned that “We would greatly appreciate having Headway’s unique perspective and experience on the board.
