OceanGuard® BWMS

OceanGuard®  BWMS is developed by Headway Technology Co., Ltd. together with Harbin Engineering University. 

OceanGuard® BWMS


 

   

 

Control Unit

Control Unit is responsible for regulating the entire system including collection of various signals from the sensors, Management of alarm signals and controls of system startup and shutdown.  It contains all procedures for the system operation, displays the system working condition, including the working condition of various parts as well as data and status reported by real time inspection from various sensors.

 

Filter

OceanGuard®  adopts full auto-back flushing filter, which can realize the simultaneous operation of filtration and back flush. The filtration precision is 50μm. It can remove organisms larger than 50μm in ballast water to prevent micro organisms and sediments entering ballast tank.

EUT

EUT Unit is the core of OceanGuard®  BWMS. Each single unit has the treatment capacity from 100-3000m3/h. The Unit comprises of two parts: Electrocatalysis Unit and Ultrasound Unit. The Electrocatalysis Unit is able to produce large numbers of hydroxyl radicals and other highly active oxidizing substances to kill all organisms in ballast water within several nanoseconds. The whole sterilization process is completed inside the EUT Unit.  During the treatment process, the Ultrasound Unit can clean the surface of Electrocatalysis Unit regularly to keep the long-term treatment effectiveness of the electrocatalysis material.

 

 

 

Advantages of OceanGuard®

 

【Technology of Advanced Electrocatalysis Oxidation Process (AEOP)】

Hydroxyl radicals produced in the process of Management by AEOP technology will disappear after several nanoseconds. These radicals have high sterilization efficiency, which are able to kill different bacteria, viruses, algae and dormant ovum in ballast water effectively (broad spectrum sterilization) in a chained mode. The sterilization process can be completed within EUT Unit. The concentration of TRO (total residual oxidation) can be controlled within 2ppm, so that the TRO can carry out advanced Management on the water in ballast tanks.

 

【No corrosion to Ships】

Hydroxyl radicals produced by OceanGuard® Ballast Water Management System will disappear after several nanoseconds. The whole sterilization Management is completed within EUT Unit. Through the Management, TRO concentration is within 2ppm. According to results of long-term operation, the system is proved to be safe and reliable, and water treated by OceanGuard™ causes no corrosion to the hull.

 

【Satisfy Requirements】

Fully meet IMO regulation and California requirement.

 

Compact Design; High-Quality Spares】

Compact design, small footprint, easy installation and maintenance free. OceanGuard®  BWMS can be fitted on various vessels with different internal structures. High-quality materials and spare parts with long lifespan are used for all the components.

 

【Wide Scope of Application】

OceanGuard® BWMS shows excellent performance in fresh water and sea water. The discharged treated ballast water has no any harm to the environment in the surrounding waters.

 

【Energy-saving】

Low operating costs. Energy consumption is only appr. 17KW for the treatment of 1000 m3 of ballast water.

 

【Explosion-proof】

OceanGuard®  obtained Explosion-proof Certificate, which can be fitted in the pump room of oil tanker, liquid gas carrier, etc.

 

【Single Treatment】

The whole process only needs the inflow treatment rather than the discharge treatment, so that it is proper for all the vessel ballast water discharge systems.

Test Report for Corrosion Contrast Experiment for Water Treated by EUT Unit of OceanGuardTM BWMS to Different Materials and Coatings.

Based on the long-term testing , the effects of two test waters on Q235 steel, SS304 and coating materials are the same, indicating that the treated seawater will not change the corrosion rules in the natural seawater for the materials above; and for butyl rubber, the effects of treated seawater on its properties are less than that of natural seawater.

 Shipping moves over 80% of the world's commodities and transfers approximately 3 to 5 billion tonnes of ballast water internationally each year.

Ballast water is absolutely essential to the safe and efficient operation of modern shipping, providing balance and stability to un-laden ships. However, it may also pose serious threats to ecology, economy and health.

There are thousands of marine species that may be carried in ships' ballast water, 
basically anything that is small enough to pass through a ship's ballast water intake 
ports and pumps. If these organisms survive transport to other parts of the globe, their impact can be devastating. Such invasions can jeopardize the local ecosystem, and even pose threats to human health. Usually, their effects are irreversible.

The introduction of invasive marine species into new environments by ships' ballast water, attached to ships' hulls and via other vectors has been identified as one of the four greatest threats to the world's oceans. In 2004, IMO adopted the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments, which will phase in requirements for ballast water treatment over the coming years.


The IMO Regulations

IMO regulations will not affect all ships in the same way. Ballast water treatment will be phased in, with requirements for different ships arriving at different times.

D-2 Regulation

    In International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments, the following D-2 Regulation is addressed regarding management of ballast water.

 





AEOP Technology of OceanGuard® BWMS
 
OceanGuard®  BWMS is developed by Headway Technology Co., Ltd. together with Harbin Engineering University.  OceanGuard®  BWMS adopts Advanced Electrocatalysis Oxidation Process (AEOP) to kill microbes, bacteria, viruses and dormant ovum in water by using special semiconductor materials under electron excitation and the hydroxyl radicals (·OH) formed by water molecules. Hydroxyl radical (·OH) produced in AEOP is one of the most active substances with very strong oxidizability. It can have different kinds of chemical reactions with almost all biological macromolecules, microorganisms and other organic pollutants instantaneously. Besides, it has extremely fast reaction rate and strong negative charge electron affinities. The end products of reaction are CO2, H2O and traces of inorganic salt without any hazardous residuals. Therefore, the treated water can be discharged out of board without any pollution. The chemical reaction which involves hydroxyl radical is free radical reaction, and it is extremely fast. Generally, the reaction rate with organics is over 109 L/ (mol.s).
 
    Moreover, the form and existence time of hydroxyl radicals is quite short, which is less than 10-12 s, so that the high efficiency and effectiveness of OceanGuard™ BWMS can be guaranteed.

Data from Landbased testings of OceanGuard®  BWMS carried out in NIVA in Sep., 2009.
